Good idea, with the attractive pricing of the BD bikes, it's like the frame is free. And you can always dump that on the classifieds.
After years of riding my GF hardtail I bit the bullet and bought a Santa Cruz Blur. The suspension is amazing, most notably on descents when the rear tire remains nicely in contact with the ground, instead of trying to endo me over the bars. Also learned that climbing is much more effective sitting in the saddle, letting the rear sus keep the traction coming. Had to change my riding style a little bit, but loving it.
