Forget the $500 MTB thread, we need an under $1500 bike thread.

That is a very bad question. You have to tell us what kind of riding you do, how big you are, how agressive you are ect. What I think a nice 1200$ bike is, may not fit your riding style at all.

He is just being straight and to the point...

There are already way too many stickies. Any more and it would just be rediculous.
