    Hey everybody,
    I am a 175 pound 6'2'' guy, and I need to purchase a full-suspension Mountain bike to do more heavy riding on. I plan on taking trips to the Mountain areas around my home state of Maryland, to fly down some rugged trails. My Budget is around $1500-$2000max. I need some suggestions on what bikes you recommend or DON'T recommend. Or any tips you may have for me.

    Thanks for the help guys!!

    FWIW. If you won't be hucking, then you may want to consider a Hardtail 29er.
