    New '09 F4 or used '06 Rush 400

    Hi, considering between the two models above. I am just getting into MTB and will not be doing anything too crazy (40 yr w/ kids), just light trails and maybe singletrack.

    There is a used 06 Rush 400 w/ some mods - Avid Levers, Race Face handle bars, Syncros stem, WTB Seat, Seatpost, Bontrager Race Disc Tubeless, Manitou R-Seven Fork. I haven't yet viewed it but the price will be approx $700 and appears to be in good condition.

    New '09 F4 is a couple of hundred more.

    Any thoughts or opinions would be appreciated.

    Did you ever MTB? Are you going to ride dirt track or rocky trails. The Rush is the way to go if you are not riding on smooth trails.

    The '09 should be on sale as they should be into the '10's soon, just a heads up. I think I paid $979 for my 09 right when it came out.

    I dunno, based on your post I'd say go with the simplicity of the hardtail. Unless you're good with maintaining a FS bike.
