    look into specialized
    "Why give some drunk the chance to plaster me against a car? That's why I don't even own a bike light, or one of those godawful reflective suits. Because if you've put yourself in a position where someone has to see you in order for you to be safe -- to see you, and to give a @#$% -- you've already blown it."

    Although I recently purchased a Trek and I'm happy with it, researching more after the fact I think Specialized would have giving me a better value.

    mid range rockhopper or high end hardrock models are pretty spiffy for that price.

    I would also recommend Specialized. I bought a Hard Rock Disc for 420 and its been great for me on XC trails.
    If you are interested, pls check out my blog which chronicles the journey of a mountain bike noob @ www.mtbnoob.com

    I can get you into a '09 Fuji Tahoe 29er Comp for that price.
    Some people are just like Slinky's. Not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

    Will you just be jumping it or will this be a trail bike as well?You need to decide how much of each you'll be doing to get a good idea of what you need.

    I'd go with something cheaper. With the fights that are breaking out at the jumps you frequent, you're likely to get beaten up and your $900 bike stolen.

    lmao, but i think ill be fine, i showed them a new spot and helped build a couple of jumps with them so ill be fine, but im going for a norco 250 08 for 900, so i try anf get it for 850, if that doesn't workout ill be looking into a norco bigfoot or sasquatch.

    If that doesn't work out, start a fight with some guys and steal their bike. Yeah. That would be the coolest.
