    Looking to buy a FS MTB around $1000

    Hi,

    I previously owned a 09 Trance x4 and sold it. That was a mistake. I'm back in the market and looking for a new/used bike. This is the best time to buy as it's off season. I don't mind picking up a Trance X again but what else is out there in my price range ($1000-1500 max)?

    Thanks,
    Numan

    There are lots of used 26" wheeled full suspension bikes on the market in the 1000-1500 price range, that were originally going for 2000-3000 dollars new.. Just comb your local craigslist

    There are literally hundreds of used bikes in that price range.

    What type of riding?
    How much travel?
    What components do you want?
    26? 27.5? 29?

    With the 27.5 craze that's happening you may be able to find absurd deal on a new 26. Look at Jenson, The Path Bike shop (Google it), Colorado Cyclist, etc. ebay is also an option as some shops will try and clear out old stock there too.
