    New rider deciding between used bikes

    I apologize in advance since I am sure you guys gets lots of these threads.

    I am just getting into mountain biking in Oregon and am really struggling with which brand of used bike I should be looking at with about a $600 budget. I know it is not much but I have a wedding coming up so gotta keep the girl happy :-)

    I am currently deciding between a 2005 Yeti 575, a Kona Coilair Deluxe, a 2008 Trek Fuel EX7, or a 2009 Intense Tracer VP. There are also Specialized bikes but there are just too many options out there.

    My buddy that I will be riding with built his Surly so I gotta be able to keep up with him. It will be a lot of trail riding and some downhill mostly.

    Any input appreciated!

    To keep my girl happy, I need to spend a lot more than $600 on a bike for her. Shoot, the wheelset I just got her was more than that.
    Do the math.
