The Chevy Cavalier and Honda Civic...both near the bottom of the model lines for their respective
companies. Both are very affordable and very reliable, with lots of happy owners (especially the
Civic). As a result, they sell very well.

What are the MTB equivalents to these perennial best-sellers? Here are some guesses:

Giant Iguana Trek 4500 Specialized Rockhopper Gary Fisher Wahoo

The Giant Iguana seems like an obvious choice, since it has been a Consumer Reports Best Buy many
times. What are the best value in the entry-level full-suspension bikes? Which hardtails did I miss?

When it comes to bicycles, Consumer Reports has no clue.

No such animal.

Yeah, but the Iguana is a pretty good bike.

That's kinda what I thought. Maybe the Kona Kikapu? It's more than double what the Giant
Iguana costs.
