Best mtb under 500

So, im 13 and I really want a mountain bike now since its the summer and it's finally nice outside. My budget is 500 and I've seen a good bike called the Vitus nucleus 275 VR but unfortunately, its discontinued due to high demand! Any other options?

thanks

Nick

The Voodoo Bizango has won lots of awards and is a lot of bike for the money. It is a 29er however and the smallest frame size they do is 16" so I'm not sure it would be a suitable size. It's on sale now for 520. The B'twin Rockrider is another budget bike everyone raves about, it's sold by Decathlon here in the UK. Have you tried looking at second hand bikes on ebay etc? You can get a much higher spec for your money if you don't mind buying second hand.

I have a Scott Aspect 29'er and im only 5'7" tall in my sneakers. Disc brakes and it can be had for under 500.
