Full suspension

Whats up, i am moving down to Grand Junction Colorado next fall to attend Mesa State College and i plan on upgrading to a full suspension. I just thought id see what kind of bike everyone thinks i should get. i was kinda hoping that it would be less than 1000, but im not sure if i will get that.

Fast and hard rule of thumb - Avoid full suspension bikes under $1000. The designs are seriously lacking below this price point

Agreed.

However, you can find pretty good stuff starting around $1400ish.
