    Looking for a Nice all mountain bike for around 1000! any suggestions?

    Hey MTBR! just looking for a nice bike, have been looking at used because of my price point but anything is welcome. I have kept my eye on these models are they any good and are they worth the price?

    Definitely check out Craigslist for some deals. I know there's a guy somewhat close to me (only a couple Craigslist "areas" away) who regularly has nice bikes for sale around $800-1200. Do some searching around Craigslist, local forums and also try websites that search "all of Craigslist" to get broad search results.

    Giant Reign is a very good option. I bought a 2010 a couple years ago for $1000, rode it for a year, put some money into it (not much) and sold it for $1200. Around my area, they are very popular (UT).

    I'd go with EBAY. Ive seen a couple nice Santa Cruz and Ellsworth's go for around 1,000 bucks. Only problem is the shipping is usually between 80-150 bucks. You can still find deals with free shipping too if you look long enough and maybe the seller is close enough so that you can just pick it up.

    I bought this new in 08, put a ton of upgrades on it, and it is in very minty fresh condition:

    Yup. It's just a matter of replacing the headset.
