    yes, i'm a noob, so help me

    hi. i'm new here, i don't have a mountain bike, i do have a specialized fuse 3 and 5 dirt bikes, which is why i want a mountain bike. i was reading motocross action magazine and there was an article about how mountain bikes are great for training, and i had been thinking about getting one anyways. so, heres my questions:
    1. what is a good complete full suspension bike for under $800?
    2. what is a good full suspension frame for under $400?
    3. is it worth it to get a frame and all the components?
    4. what are all the components needed to build a bike?

    sorry for all the questions, any help would be appreciated. thanx!

    1. - Theres not many of them about. The only one that springs to mind is the Haro Extreme x1 - but I think that maybe over your budget.
    2. - Theres loads. Look around at whats on offer and check out the reivews at www.mtbr.com
    3. - Yes, if you know what your doing.
    4. - I think this answers my point in question 3, that perhaps you don't know what your doing?
    The views expressed above are badly thought out and hastley typed. Any spelling or gramatical mistakes, are, their to annoy.

    Even if you bought the frame for 400 you would go over your 800 dollar budget just by getting a decent fork for the bike. I'm also not sure how good the rear shock would be. Most here will tell you to look at hardtails in that price range because you can get a real nice one compared to a bottom line full suspension bike. If you are stuck on full suspension however you could get this bike http://www.supergo.com/profile.cfm?L...xt=&referpage= . Also you never stated what type of riding you wanted to do, whther it be Freeride or cross country.

    That's pretty damn nice for the price.

    if i do just get the frame, i am fine with spending more because then i can just build it up as i get the money.
    i also like to freeride like jumping, drop-offs, and just riding around
