Giants make good off road bikes. There DH comp, team and AC range are great! ONly problem is that the price range is around the $1500 AU range (god, more currency confusion). It depends what sort of riding you want to do. If it is extreem off road, jumps, riding off off-road tracks or just sticking to the small dirt tracks.
Now i wouldn't know whether to say bother with dual-suspension or leave it to good Front fork. There is no point in getting Dual-Suspsension for a cheap price, and you need to look out for some companies who will rip you off. Then there are disk brakes, you would want a good size disk, say at least 10" and at least on your front wheel.
What i'm saying is that is all has to do with what riding your doing, how steep your going, what extreem tracks are you taking. Disks might be nessesary or just unessesary, look around at some bike shops and find one that suits you.
