I need a new ride

Long stort short: Tremendous wreck followed by surgery. Here is the scar. I need a new ride. I crashed a 2000 Gary Fisher Big Sur (hard tail). Now it is time for something new. Budget is $2500. XC riding no freeride or big air in my future.

A picture of the wrecked bike would have been more palatable.

How about a Gary Fisher Hi-Fi? My friend has one, I rode it for about an hour. He has Mavic SLR's and it's lighter than my Heckler. Rides great!
The Cannondale Rush is a good XC bike, too IMO, test rode them at my local LBS.

Yes, as mentioned look into 29er's, they're great for soaking up big bumps etc.
