Used older full suspension or cheap new one?
I had a 1999 Jamis full suspension that I really loved. Now that it has been stolen, I'm looking for something else. I can only afford about $500, so my options are another '90s FS bike on Craigslist or bikes direct. Not much on Craigslist, but I saw a Cannondale V 400 that night work. I've gotten quite fond of full squishy, but I'm still building my skills, so I just can't justify spending big money. I

should note, I prefer FS for the traction and not having to rely on my crappy knees for suspension

My normal point of view would be that an old bike that was built to be quality beats a new bike that wasn't, but given the evolution of full suspension in the last 10-15 years, maybe Bikes Direct is the way to go.
