I've been riding the same bike for a long time and want to upgrade from a hard tail to a full suspension (not immediately, but a couple of months from now, or so (need $)). I don't want to spend a ton of $ ($2000 at the most). I am a light rider (about 150 lbs) so my main priority is light weight (that is, I don't want to buy something that is intended for a 200 + pound rider). So, what are some good reviews (as well as your own thoughts--just don't fill the thread up with chatter and 1-line posts, please)? One idea I had is to buy an upper end Raleigh or Giant, which seem to give you a pretty good deal on nice light components. I'm also willing to go with a used or demo bike (don't mind doing the maintenance). How do you find out when and where demo bikes are being sold?
Thanks for the ideas guys.
