help buying a mountain bike

hello my name is Juan, and I'm new here, I'm from Spain but now I'm living in the U.S. and do not control very well the English am traductor using google, if I translated something weird that's why. Thank you.

I would buy a bike here, since I have an Orbea h50 there and wanted to buy something better and new.

He planned to shop online with a budget of $ 1810.95 or store.

I would like it to be 29 "and front suspension

In store I sell a Nine, Jamis y niner

And sold Spezialized.
thank you very much to all

I think Juan has or did have a Orbea back in Spain but now that he's living in the USA would like to buy a new 29er bike .
Juan has seen Niner Jamis and Specialized bikes in store and trying to decide which one around $1800.

Juan I don't live in the USA but if you budget will allow I would recommend a MCR9 Niner. I'm very fond of this model. Sorry but that's the best advice I have .

I don't know that I would suggest a rigid bike. Some love them, I understand. Personally my wrists and elbows would not survive roots and rocks without a suspension fork... I'd be riding a lot less.

I would look at the Niner EMD 9 and the Specialized Carve. In fact I bet this is the $1800 bike the original poster saw:

It's a very good bike for $1800.
