Bike around $500

I'm looking for a good trail bike for around $500. I'm 135lbs and 5'11. I was looking at the wtp 4 seasons. does anyone know any better bike for the price?

Could anyone fill me in on the differences between the fit flow trail, team trail, and pro trail to help me make my decision? I rode the pro trail today at a local track and liked it but would there be a big difference in performance compared to the team trail or flow trail?
