K im looking for a HT mountain bike for Freeride, downhill, some XC, jumps and drops, stuff like that.. basically something for rough offroad use. the thing is im only looking to spend around $500 (i know it wont get me much) I'd like something worth the money.
right now im looking at
Marin B-17 http://www.marinbikes.com/bicycles_2...specs_b17.html (its cheaper than listed price)
Marin northside http://adrenalinebikes.com/store.cfm...20Hard%20Tails
spesh Rockhopper or hardrock
and maybe a Iron horse bike. the Mavericks perhaps?
Im a sucker for good deals
anyways thanks in advance for helping me out. im pretty new to the site and im pissed that i havent found out about it before
