    What type of riding are you going to do? What is your budget? I have a Fuji Reveal 2.0 and love it. The Nevada 2.0 is a beginners bike with lower level components. It's a starteer bike, but once you get better you will definitely want to upgrade your components or even get another bike. Bikes are super expensive so I can understand you only wanting to spend a lower amount. The problem is with upgrading or getting a different bike, you will spend way more money than just buying a more expensive bike upfront. Either way having a bike and riding is the most important part.

    As for the Fuji name it's hit or miss. Some people do not like them because they don't have the status symbol. Fuji was a name brand for road bikes and recently has expanded into the MTB world. I can tell you I am very picky and love my bike. I like that I will most likely never see a person on the trail that has one. Unlike a Specialized, Cannondale, or Trek that I see the same bike over and over. Don't get me wrong they are amazing bikes, just not my taste. Good luck with your bike and just get out there riding......

    What type of riding will you be doing? This is important because every bike has its intended usage. I know there are so many choices out there. Are you getting this from a LBS (local bike shop)? What is the price? Where are you from? Every bike in the under $500 category are not ment to be abused. The components will usually break if they are stressed.

    The bottome line it's a good beginner bike. There are other choices as well to look at. Some include the specialized rochhopper, GT avalanche, Diamond Backs Response Comp, etc. Do some searching on other types before making the plunge if you have time. All in all your going to only get so much for the budget. Answer the questions above and I will try and help you find the perfect bike for your budget. So far I love my Fuji and it has taken everything I have thrown at it. Also realize though my components are ment to take the punishment.

    Anything is going to be better than a Huffy. I had one and just gave it away to a friend so he could ride on the street. Are there any local bike shops around your town? Definitely look around to see what choices you can get locally. Full MSRP ($599) seems steep. Usually you can get a better deal for less than they price them. Look for a closeout or older model. Check craiglist, ebay, pinkbike. Check out internet places as well.

    Just to name a few: - watch out for shipping $100+ extra - but can get a more expensive bike for cheaper

    jensonusa.com
    bikedirect.com - free shipping
    performancebike.com
    rei.com - $60 shipping

    I too am looking at the Neveda 2.0. My lbs can get it for $599 however included in that price, I am getting it fully assembled, professionally fitted to my body, and a yearly tune up for the next 3 years. My lbs packs a lot of value into the price
