    A good full suspension

    I want advice on a good bike around $2000.00 I am 5' 6" around 141lbs. Most interested in a full- suspension bike, maximum weight 25 lbs, and will be riding on long trails with comfortable position to pilot. I would greatly appreciate any advice. Thank you.

    The Rocky Mountain ETSX 30 would be a good bike if you could find one in that price range. The Specailized Stumpjummper is hard to beat in the bang for your buck department. You get one of the, if not the best suspension designs of all time and you can get modles at many price points.

    Santacruz Superlight if it fits you well. it will be a tad over 25lbs stock, but you can lighten it up.

    I'm not pretty sure, but I doubt you'll be able to find a 25lb FS for that money...

    Anyway, the Stumpjumper FSR is a pretty good bike!

    under 25 pounds and less than $2000, the only bike i can think of that meets that criteria would probaby be one of Motobecanes higher end bikes. http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/...om_team07x.htm this bike is a good bit less than $2000 and still probably under 25 lbs.

    yeah, it will be less than 25lbs, but not very tough; however, may suit the OP needs because he is super light.

    Under 25lbs and under 2k is tough.

    the giant athem is also a pretty nice FS bike that will be in the 25-27lb range for the athem 1

    I think the Trek Top Fuel 8 is like 25ish lbs too. Around $2500 cdn, or close to $2k USD

    closest I can find

    is a new SC Superlight at $1999, the XC model, and it's 27.11 pounds. IMHO you need to adjust your expectations a little, for either the weight, or the price.
