    Anyone have some suggestions?

    I really want a SS hardtail with front suspension obvo. What is the best bike I could get for around 500? Used it also an option, although nothing in the classifieds popped up.

    Are you wanting a 29er or 26"?

    If I were in your shoes, I'd try to get a slightly used bike. I've seen quite a few pop up in the last several weeks. IIRC, there was a Redline Monocog with a Tora or Reba up front for $400 or so. Also a Redline Monocog Flight (26") with a SID for $325. Buying a new $500 front-suspension bike will get you a very mediocre bike. So spend a little less buying used or just save up and get a nicer bike. There were a couple of brand new Gary Fisher Rig's with nice components at less than $1,000 two months ago.

    Oh also, I'm new to mountain biking. I guess a 29er sounds better after reading about them. I'd buy a nicer bike if I had more bike, but I just finished building my bmx bike for around 1300.

    Well, you can get a SE Stout from JensonUSA for $320, then add on a suspension fork, if you want new. If used is ok, keep an eye out on the classifieds here, craigslist, and ebay.
