    looking for a new mountain bike

    I am in the market for a new mountain bike and am really undecided on waht to get. I could go for a sweet hardtail, or a decent full suspension xc bike. i would love for yall to give me yall disadvantages and advantages to each. also, any brand and/or model ideas would be appreciated. the cheaper the better, but i would go up to around 1000 bucks.

    For $1000 you'll most likely be better off with a hardtail. Something along the lines of a Specialized Rockhopper would be a great place to start looking. There are many opinions on what bike is best but it all comes down to what you like and what feels right.
