    Bikes between 1000$ - $1500

    Once, twice, or more, there are questions about "What's the best MTB under $1500?". You can add whatever MTB that is under $1500. I will start by naming a few:

    Dirtjumpers/Freeride:
    Kona: Stuff
    Cowan
    Specialized: Hardrock Pro Disc
    Rockhopper Proc disc
    P.2
    Norco: Manik
    Tactik
    Sasquatch
    125

    Cross-country/Xc:
    Kona:
    Caldera
    Dawg Matic (price varies)
    Specialized: FSR XC Comp
    Norco: Charger

    Marin also makes some XC steel hardtails. The Rockhopper is an XC bike, not freeride or dirt jump bike as listed in the first post.
