    Why do you need full suspension for the middle east? Are there hills there?

    Best bet is look for used.

    What you really want is a rigid, single speed, steel 29er.

    Walmart online, maybe bikes direct. You asked for "good rear suspension" less than $500. Have you been arrested for "holding" in the past?
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!
