    Full Sus. Under $600?

    I am looking for a new mountain bike to ride the trails with and was looking to go full suspension. I would assume most of you will say to go hardtail at this price range, and if so I might have to do that. But I really would like a full suspension if possible. I'm pretty hard on bikes, so quality components matter to me. I usually break a derailer or bend a rim pretty easily. I was thinking about going XT for this price range. I was looking at these two bikes specifically. Let me know what you all think. I have been searching used as well.

    Ya, I know its from bikesdirect, not the best. But if you can't mention any bikes specifically, please mention some good parts I should be looking for at this range eg shocks, forks etc.

    For your budget......look for a nice used bike. $600 will buy you a pretty good used FS rig.
    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
    The carbon is way more durable than most people.
