I'm returning to mountain biking after a 6 year absence and am a bit overwhelmed with all the new technology. I started out looking for a decent hardtail for around $600, but most of the local shops suggested I step into a full suspension bike. The Specialized Rockhopper FSR XC and the Giant NRS 3 seem to be the best bikes in my budget (approx $1000). Which bike would be better for a 200 lbs guy that plans to ride mostly moderate trails? I really like the components on the Giant, but I have read that their frames are thin. Also, I am open to other suggestions that fit within my budget.
