    That will get you into the entry level of some of the Big Name bikes hardtails..Specialized Trek and Gaint. I would take a walk to your Local Bike Shop (lbs) and pose the same questions. At that level you really cant go wrong with any of the above manufacturers.

    This year I picked up a lightly used 06 Marin Mount Vision for my son for $450. The bike retailed for $1800. It came with all the original receipt. Keep an eye on the local classified or craiglist. Walk away if it is beat or if they down have the paper work.

    Do some research on the type of bike you are looking for with $700 you should be able to find a bike for 50% to 70% off retail. So a bike that originally sold for $1,500 - $2,000. Don't go older than 4 or 5 years. My first FS was a 2000 Jekyll. I picked it up for $600 rode it for 18 month and sold it for $600. Until I decided to go all it.

    Also, for a small amount more, the Specialized Rockhopper Comp Disc 29er can be had for the upper 700s. A nice 29er for the money, and I'm sure it would be a lot of fun to ride! (The color is puke green though.)
