Look at the Specialized line. I would look at the Rockhoppers and possibly the Stumpjumpers. Not sure at what price the Stumpjumpers are ate, but those are the two I would look at from Specialized.

I'm a fan of Kona and would look at the XC line. If you re looking to get a bike right now then go look at the 2005 models. You will get a double bang for the buck. The end-of-year pricing applies but also because in the 2006 model line it looks like they've lightened the component quality on the XC hardtail line meaning you'll have to spend more next year to get the same components you got this year.

Some people swear by the Gary Fischer Genesis geometry. You'll have to try it out and see if it's for you.
