howzit im new what do you guys recomend ive got a $1000nzl budget (aprox) i do freerideing mostly. I had a Apollo LSX 1.2 but i broke that , probly coz its a cross country and i did jumps and stuff on it but i only had it for about 2 weeks and rode it 3 times at Woodhill mtb park. At the moment ive got a 5 year old department store bike wtih bent pedals so i need a new one pretty soon.
STP2 cons: You could have bought a Stumpjumper. Or an FSRxc 05'. Or something not giant
Edit: Woooops i thought you meant the NRS2, my bad. <a href="http://www.giant-bicycle.com/au/030.000.000/030.000.000.asp?lYear=2005&bikesection=8803&range=80&mode=rangelist">The 05 STP will look like this</a>
