    Looking for a cheap, light hardtail

    I have a friend at the high school I attend who wants to get into biking. She wants to do trails, but also wants to change the tires and get some road action. She is probably about 5' and 110lbs. Her price range is $400-$500. I was thinking a light hardtail would do the trick. I don't know much about bike weight vs. level of components. Is it possible to get a bike with decent components in a 25lb. package in this price range? No ebay or craigslist on this one.

    Unless you get a singlespeed, you can't get 25 pounds until you pay upwards of 800 dollars.

    Cheapest lightweight option

    Motobecane Fly Pro ay bikesdirect.com. $900 and a claimed weight of less than 22 lbs.

    There are some nice options in the $600 range, but you're talking 28 lbs or so.
