Hardtail or Yukon FS? HELP?
It depends on how much you're willing to spend, and if you're looking for a high quality full suspension or "squishy" then I'd miss the Yukon FX in my opinion.
If you are contemplating throwing $900 at the Yukon FX why not get the XTC 2. It's a hardtail but it's a better bike all around (in my opinion) for $50 less than the yukon fx.
We had a fleet of Yukon FX rental bikes at my last shop. The only thing I really didn't like was the shifters.
It rides amazingly well for the price. I highly recommend it. It's one of the best 4-bar suspensions I've ridden.
It's an awesome bike, but I'm biased. I could never go back to a hardtail 26" bike so I don't think any hardtail is that great, at any price.
I just went from a hardtail to a trance but had I not gotten the deal I did then I would have gotten the Fx. Ride is similar and I have more fun on the FS than the HT.

I love both. I do most of my riding on a full suspension bike. But I still love my old Rocky Mountain Hardtail.
I would go for the Yukon FS.
Probably one of the best inexpensive FS bikes out there.
MB Action mag rated it well when they tested it.
