    You're going to have to buy used in that range. Try craigslist or the nemba classifieds. Alot of people upgrade in the offseason so there are some good deals out there.

    If you're looking for something used, and you don't mind buying it from some place far away, save an Ebay search for some bikes you like and see what pops up. I picked up an almost new Reign X1 for about half price that way. A lot of bike shops sell used or demo bikes online these days.

    I know when I was looking there were left-over Diamonback Missions and Sorties in that price range.

    Check shops for leftovers. There are bike out there for about a grand new. Getting anything for $800 new that is a better Western Mass than a Jekyll will be tough. You might be better off spending the $ on upgrading it.
