    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Best mountain bikes under 1000$!

    Hi, I'm looking for the best mountain bike in the 600$ range. You can suggest something at a higher price (about 1000$ worth new) that I could get used. Thanks!

    I got a Rocky Mountain ESTX70 for just a bit over $600 dollars this spring. Figure out what you want (full suspension, 29er etc) and then troll craigslist obsessively. My new to me bike originally retailed for $3500 in 2007. Its a great bike. I still ride my 1999 Schwinn Homegrown in bass boat blue, but ride my Rocky much more. Its been a great bike. I will eventually have to get the front forks gone through, but rebuilding the rear shock yourself is easy.

    edit: you will probably find better 26" bikes for cheaper because they have been around much longer. Plenty of people buy more bike than they need and then they sit and collect dust.

    Best Mountain Bikes Under $1,000 - Updated - BikeRadar

    Thats a good place to start. Itll give you an idea of what the top for price offer since all have big pluses and some downsides.

    Craigslist can be a gold mine depending on your area.

    Bikesdirect and Airborne are best bang for dollar no question about it if you are going new .
