    Just about everyone suggests a hardtail in that price range. Inexpensive full suspension bikes are heavy and the suspensions don't work well.

    The components on the second bike are basic but should work well enough.

    A better value may be a recent model used bike on your local craigslist if you can find one that fits and isn't overpriced.
