What bike should i get?

Hey guys. I may get a different bike soon, since i am going to be going to the mountains once or twice a year now. When i go to the mountains i will be doing DH. But i will also be doing lots of dirt jumping, and just riding around the city.

Here are my options. And i will be riding used.
-2006 Norco Shore 3: $1200
-2006 Norco Shore 1: $1000
-2008 Kona Stinky: $1300
-Maybe a Norco A-Line if i can find one cheap.

What do you guys think i should buy, or were i should look?

And, how much do you think my 2009 Norco Sasquatch would be worth? I have barely used it and it is in great shape.
Please post USD, or CAD or whateves.

Thanks, Tyler.

I'd say since you're going to the mountains only once (maybe 2x) per year...rent a really nice DH bike when you go. Then go buy yourself a good urban hardtail that you can tear up the DJ's and Urban session's with.
