    My crappy Honda died on me, need recommendations

    You could read the whole thread here but here's what basically happened.

    But of course, because of my handicapped condition of being very good physically with my body, after a few hundred hours, I owned that ***** back in it's place.

    So when you try and screw the crank back onto the bike, your just mashin it up worse and that ****er is goin to keep fallin off.
    :bow:

    I just got back and my worst nightmares came back again, it started wobbling... I was already like 5 miles out, but this time I knew what the problem was, all I could do was stop whenever it started wobbling real bad, and tighten the nut with my keys :shuffle: It was torture trying to get back, I was heading to the bike shop to see if they can do anything about it, and when I finally reached there it was closed :thud: and now I'm finally home, glad that nightmare is over. I'm going to get the torch and melt the ****er until it's a puddle of molten steel. :shout:
    I didn't know what threads were until my father told me the threads were wearing out and I asked "the spiraly thing?"
    I got that bike because it was cheap, and looked cool, I was a newbie, I still am and I'm lost as to what to get. I want a Full Suspension MTB that will last me a pretty long time. One that isn't too heavy, because this Honda weighed a ton, and it was horrifying riding against the wind, I have had joggers infront of me while I'm peddaling my ass off.

    I'm 5'6 160-170lbs, had to cut my old seat down shorter because I'm kinda short lol.

    My price range is 200-300$ any help would be nice, thanks in advance.

    I forgot to add, I ride in the city and along shores, I jump up and down curbs alot, these curbs can be up to 7 inches? Don't know if this matters

    I've kinda grown onto FS, I like how it feels, how it takes bumps, and it looks wicked lol.

    Edit: Would any of these work?

    The Mongoose Exile Full Suspension Mens Mountain Bike 2005 really caught my eyes. From what I hear, Mongoose seems reliable, and it's alloy unlike my ex.

    Edit: I just ordered it from fogdog...
