mountain bikes on ebay

Im here looking on ebay for a mountain bike with full suspension and im seeing all these companies ive never heard of. I was wondering about that quality on these bikes. If anyone could give me a list of what bikes i should consider and ones i should stay away from that would be very helpfull.

You could do a search for the unknown companies on this site, and if it doesn't get any hits, steer clear. That's probably the shortest, easiest answer.

Hey, how about you do the work and we'll give you opinions.

Find a bike you think is good, go to www.mtbr.com and read the reviews, go to the companies website, perform a "Search" here and do some reading.

We're happy to help, just not happy to do your work for you!

Or, just buy a Specialized Enduro Pro, it's a great bike! How's that for a quick answer?

Since we have no idea what you are looking to do its a bit hard to recommend bikes.
