    i cant decided!!!!

    so i have a POS full suspension mountain bike and ive ridden a couple trails around my area but i like the sport and want to get more into it. So i was noticing when i rode my bike (full suspension) and my sisters bike (no suspesion) that i could get more of my energy to the floor on the no suspesion. So i decided that i needed a hard tail but, i want to get one that has up to date stuff (like a disc ready frame) that i can upgrade it if i want to but also inexpensive. some bikes i was told to look at were:
    specialized rock hopper
    "" hardrock
    trek 8 something
    and i like my dads older gt which i thoguht they made a nice one as well.

    so please help me by giving expierence/ advice and my budget is about $300 used (probably going to buy off of craigslist for seattle).

    i may also just get a regular no suspesnion bike and put a rock shock on it and then make the drive gears only 1 gear cause that is all i really use on the trails, i just put the left side in 1 and the right i move about freely?

    If you are looking for a used bike it will come down to what's available rather than what's best.

    I would start by checking out where you can get used bikes from and what sort of choice you have. A good place to start is ebay.

    Best of luck.

    Yeah agreed. Just keep looking on craigslist/ebay and once you see something that looks good, look up the reviews on here, and ask questions in the forums
