I'm kind of new to the forums, too. I have learned, however, that posting this question on BF is like asking, "I'm a guy. What kind of girl should I marry?"

My suggestion is that you decide what kind of bike you want (road bike, mountain bike, BMX, hybrid) and then do some searching/reading in the corresponding forum.

It sounds like you're interested in a mountain bike. There's a sticky at the top of that forum that tries to address exactly this kind of question. Maybe once you have things narrowed down to one model vs. another you can try posting in the MTB forum.

Good luck, and welcome to BikeForums!
