    Yes, the Hardrock Sport (cheapest one, and what I have) is a good deal. It should be around $350.. maybe you can save up a little more and get that one if you pay for part of it.

    bikelver, I would save up a bit more, maybe $500. Then go for a nice hardtail.

    If you plan on taking it on trails then I would say no. I started on a bike with Acera and Alivio components which are a step or two above the tourney, and within a month or two of riding light XC the components and the fork fell apart. The fork was a RST (probably similar to the one on the Diamond Back). If you are planning on riding for a while and want to ride XC I would save your money like the others have said and buy a better bike. It will end up saving you money in the long run in repairs and replacement parts. If however you just want a bike to ride around on the road or paved trails this one will probably suit you fine.

    What bike do you have now? Why do you want a new one? (i.e. what features are you looking for?). Just over $300 seems like the price for entry level steel no suspension MTBs. Bianchi, Specialized, Gary Fisher ... all seem to have one in that price range. Some of the component sets looked good though.

    Look at those bikes and see if they fit your needs. If so get the one that fits best and has components you like. If not wait and save up some more, but if they fit your needs why spend more than you need to. In other words don't buy snob apeal.

    What the heck do you mean your family hates Specialized?
    Anyway, if they pay you 300 bucks save up another 50 and get the Hardrock Sport.

    Big diff between grammar/spelling police and aolese. Thanks for pointing it out. I don't mind correcting. I was typing too fast for my own good.

    Thanks for attempting to undermine the rules of the board. Cheers.
