Hey folks, I'm looking to get back in the game and was looking for some guidance and opinions. I'm not a beginner, but I haven't ridden much in many years. I used to have a '95 Voodoo Hoodoo steel hardtail that I built up. I rode it for many many years and absolutely loved it. I sold the bike back in March before I moved from Chicago to Winston Salem, NC. I am now looking to get another bike and would like some opinions. I am looking for another hardtail, and was considering a 29'er. But my riding style is (was) fairly aggressive and I used to like jumping stuff, hopping over stuff and otherwise just tossing the bike around on the trails. I am sure I'm not going to ride as hard as I used to, but I don't know if a 29 would fit my riding style. I am also on a rather limited budget. I would like to spend between $500 and $700 (can possibly stretch that a little higher for something worthwhile), so I was thinking maybe something used. I want to get something that is strong, but rather lightweight, has good components and can take a little abuse. Given the budget and my previous riding style... what do you think some decent options would be?
