    What bike?

    What I want: Something for trail riding (downhill, technical trails) and a little bit of jumping.

    Price range: Preferably less than $700 (used will probably be best option).

    I am new to mountain biking and my experience with the bikes is limited. I've been trying to find a used Kona Stinky but haven't had much luck. The 2010 Specialized Hardrock 29er caught my eye, but I don't know if that would suit my style of riding. Bike suggestions welcome.

    Thoughts on this bike? http://cgi.ebay.com/09-GARY-FISHER-R...item53dde157d7

    The fact that there is no knowledge of the original owner kind of turns me off.

    For new from the dealer: GF Opie? 2010 Specialized Hardrock 29er?

    The fork on the Ebay Fisher looks odd, like it is not in line with the head tube.
