Trek 3000 series can be had for that amount of money. I work part time at a Trek dealer and got a 3900 for a friend for $300.

Visit your shop and look around.

With the fear of getting my head bitten off....

I recently purchased a new Schwinn Mesa off ebay for $210 after shipping. No fear, it was from a LBS in Jersey, so I kept the money away from xmart. I was able to sit and try one out in person and found a deal on ebay. It has same specs as the ~$300 bikes from Trek, Giant, etc. I just started riding and dont use it for much else than riding Metroparks trails and occasional dirt trail. Nothing crazy. It does the job. I am happy with the purchase. If I ever get to the point where I am doing serious mtn biking, I would upgrade, but I am not there yet.

Trek 820 is steel frame and non preload fork. Giant is pretty nice from what I hear. Probably would have ended up with Trek 3900 if it wasnt for the ebay deal.
