I appreciate any input. I am looking to get into mountain biking, and I am wanting some input on a good bike that I can get at a reasonable price. I grew up dirt jumping BMX and have really been wanting to get back into riding and looking for some input on good bikes for someone starting out mountain biking. I have a ton of trails near where I live in California and I want to get a bike that will work good for me. I am ideally going to look for something used but I just don't have a huge budget for a super expensive bike.
Not really sure whether I should be looking for a hard tail or full suspension? I really dont know anything about mountain bikes so I thought I would see what I can find on here.
Thanks for any info you can give.
