    Where can I buy a solid beginner mountain bike for a cheap price? Please help!?

    Hello everyone!

    I am new to the sport of mountain biking. I have been going to local trails and riding for only a couple months with a few friends but I have fallen in love with the sport! I have been riding my dad's old bike for the time being. It is an old 19" Trek bike with 26" wheels and no suspension of any sort. I am looking into buying a new bike for myself that has suspension of some sort. I am currently leaning towards a hardtail. The only problem is I am a college kid and do not have enough money to drop $350+ on a new bike.

    Can anyone give me any ideas on where to buy a solid beginner mountain bike that won't break my bank account?

    Thanks!

    How bad is the bike you are riding? Could you put a suspension fork on it and ride it until you have more money to get what you want and not what you can afford now? It might help if you post this in whatever state you are in and someone might have a used bike or know of a decent shop in your area.
