    New bike, what should i get?

    I posted before that I bought a K2 zed 2.0 but i am going to return it. So i changed my budget to the +/- $600 range. Please let me know my options. I have a few in mind, but see what some veterans think first. Newish to mountain biking, probably just some trail riding, minor jumps, some gravel, and some road. Please let me know what you all think. Thanks.

    Get a new old stock 2006 Specialized Hard Rock Sport Disc. and switch out the fork for a Marzocchi All mountain III.

    You've got to lay off man. That isn't right you harassing forum members for no justifiable reason. Reported to mods.

    This is self-policing within the forum. Experienced members have to try and keep newbies honest or the quality of advice dispensed within the forum would get even worse!
