    You do need to give us some idea of price. I can suggest for you a $4000 F.S. frame or a $500 quality hardtail.

    For a newbie like yourself? A hardtail. You need to learn skills that only a hardtail can teach you. If you start out on a FS you'll never learn how ride a trail correctly. Instead you'll rely on the bike to compensate for fundamental flaws in your technique.
