    That leaves us alot of choices. 1000 bucks can get you alot on a bike. But a bike that good would probably be more specailized for the type of riding its made for.
    Did you just kick my tire?! I hope you didn't just kick my tire!

    Rockhopper Comp Disc or similar from Trek, Jamis, Giant, etc. If you can find a clearance Stumpy ($1400 MSRP) for $1000 grab it

    Send your money to me, and based on the return address, I will use my p'wers to determine the type and quantity of trails in your area. Please include a picture of yourself so I may ascertain your fitness level.
