What bike?

What I want: Something for trail riding (downhill, technical trails) and a little bit of jumping.

Price range: Preferably less than $700 (used will probably be best option).

I am new to mountain biking and my experience with the bikes is limited. I've been trying to find a used Kona Stinky but haven't had much luck. The 2010 Specialized Hardrock 29er caught my eye, but I don't know if that would suit my style of riding. Bike suggestions welcome.

Thoughts on this bike? http://cgi.ebay.com/09-GARY-FISHER-R...item53dde157d7

The fact that there is no knowledge of the original owner kind of turns me off.

For new from the dealer: GF Opie? 2010 Specialized Hardrock 29er?

The fork on the Ebay Fisher looks odd, like it is not in line with the head tube.
