    its possible to get a yeti as-x for under that here and there . . . you just have to keep you eyes peeled ..

    you can get a used one for WAY under that too.. most, of which, are in like new condition.

    A Glory 1 retails for $2700, or a Stinky for $2000. $2700 is out of your range I know, but most shops will give you 10% off without even thinking twice, so then you're around $2400.

    you missed it, the IH Yakuzza Kumicho type R1700 off of pricepoint.com absolutly love the bike, its 42 pounds stock, and has better parts then the demo pro 9, in my opion. all sram drive train, 11-21 cassett, heavy duty wtb 37mm rims, boxxer race fork, unfortunatly rear shock is only ok, swinger 6 way, just don't like it

    www.ebay.com
    www.craigslist.com if you're in a big city.

    I recommending people to used/online because I work at a shop, but if you're looking for high quality at that price, used is the only way to go

    $2,100

    Giant's Reign X series is the best bang for buck you'll ever see. Not only do you get one of the best frames ever made, it comes well equipped.

    Norco has good prices too, but tends to give you the low end crap that doesn't perform well, such as SSV type forks.

    ya what everyone else said... transition is pretty good and so is the giant. and for around the 2,000 range there is also a stinky and a bighit 2, both of which are bombproof freeride bikes...

    I got mine through Harbor Country Bike & Hobby. They have good prices and even better prices through their Ebay store. Mongoose Black Diamond series bikes are very well equipped and can be had well under that price. Good luck!

    You can get a 2007 Demo 7 or a 2005 or 6 Demo 9 for under $2300 on e-bay used.. some decent bikes are available for anywhere from $1500+ and you can use the extra money to replace any used up parts. That's where I'd go for $2300 or less, you'll get much less bike if you go new for that price. hb

    I bought my bike off ebay. 800 bucks and it was in almost perfect condition... replaced brake pads(front only) and chain(after like 15 rides so it was probably me that ****ed it up) everything else is still in great shape.

    if you're on a budget i'd recommend going used and spending the extra money you save on upgrades

    I love my Reign X1 and the 08's can be had for $2000 new. Held up well today on the rock garden at Devil's Den and didnt have any problems following the SC v10's and big travel bikes. It doesn't monster truck as well but still does a great job... jumps great too. I changed the handle bar to a riser but that's the only change I have made.
