    So... i have $500-$600 to spend

    I am really looking for a duel suspension because I bent the back rim of my old hardtail from stair jumps. (i usualy ride street after the trails)

    so far this is my first choice: http://www.rei.com/product/745682


    anybody have experience with this bike?

    Take a look at the GF Biggn's you could spring the extra $60 on the Mullet(but itll probably be on sale) cause thats basically what its made for...Trails and jumps...and even if it were to break GF will replace it easily...but its just what i would do...

    PS i wouldnt trust a FS for that cheap...again its not my money...so do whatever you want...you seeked advice and i gave it...

    You will get more fun out of a HardTail then out of Dual Suspension for that price.

    A HardTail will offer you a better ride.

    I'd prefer a bike where my front and rear suspension are not dueling with each other.

    Doesn't Matter

    I don't mind having to ride hardtail or dual, I'm currently on a dual...that will be changed next week.

    What's wrong with a good duel?
