    If possible look for a bike with a good fork if you will be trail riding.
    Those bikes have a bottom grade coil fork without adjustable rebound and are designed for bike paths and dirt roads.
    Need help with fork install on new bike assembly

    Around 500ish. The only reason I am looking at diamondbacks is because I get a discount through my employer. But I am open to any other options! And right now my intended interest is to ride on light trails and on dirt roads.

    That Marin has a very good fork for the price, which would set you up for any trail riding. Ebay sales by that seller can be cheaper.
