    Affordable freeride bike?

    What kind of full suspension bikes can I get into for under $1000. I'm looking at a Big Hit Spec, what's a good price on that from a LBS? I'm just looking for some suggestions.

    haro x1 is under 1000 theand is awsome for the price. IMO better looking and way more capable than the spec. really solid frame. the only thing bad on it is the front fork, but even then its ok. heres mine after a bunch of upgrades. i love it. i find it preforms best doing downhill but i also do jumps and up to 20 foot drops and it handels them like a pro. and all thats is with the stock rear shock too.

    Look into used Stinkies. You can find some pretty awesome deals used.

    well its a good bike for a while but if your doing anything big consider spensing more money. My friend cracked his rear triangle off no more than 6 foot drops.

    Second vote for a used Stinky or AC (04 AC1 with the Slider was a decent 6 inch bike) rear triangle and linkage on the Stinky is stronger though.

    wait.....did I just say something nice about Manitou?? I can hear SMT's footsteps coming down the third base line to take me out now. Hahaha.
