    You wont get anything with a good fork and disc brakes for under $500.

    What currency is this in? I doubt you'd be able to get an absolut AL for less than $1200.

    I doubt you'd be able to find a Canadian dealer of Commencal. In Canada it's mostly Norco, GT, Trek, Gary Fisher, Brodie, Kona, .243, Giant and Cannondale.

    This is the cheapest and closest to your price range. Or a hardrock

    Be sure to read this as well.

    It might be a good idea if you start on a bmx if you havent already.

    Yeah, that would probably be a good idea. Stay away from dual suspension bikes and stay away from department stores. Always buy from bike shops.

    If you're serious about mountain biking, definately lay out more cash than $500.

    I do too...

    I used to rant about aol'ese, but I just gave up. It's impossible to stop it.

    As for the OP, consider a bmx bike or a bmx cruiser (a bmx bike with 24" wheels) if you're doing mostly in town riding. That or a trials bike.
