    New bike

    Hey everyone, Im looking to buy a mountain bike, IVe owned a specialized before(not a mountain bike), so Im sort of leaning towards them, knowing they are of good quality. I don't know much about them, Soft tail, hard tail. I weigh about 250lbs, and im about 5'11. Im looking to spend under $1000, and I was looking at ebay for used ones. I was looking at the full suspension bikes, I like the enduro. Can someone give me some advise on a good bike for someone my size.
    Thanks
    JD

    What type of riding are you planning on doing with it? If your planning on Doing XC, then a hardtail would be best, if you want to do all mountain and light freeride, an enduro is a good choice..

    Either way, you cant go wrong with specialized

    Since your bigger look for something with stiffer springs in the fork, or get the Enduro and replace the stock fork springs with some stiffer ones. You're looking for a softtail... but another good choice is the Kona Hoss. Im sure pwrdbytrd will agree with me on this one.
