    I want a new MTB but it seems that I need some help. I've tested out an 07 Specialized Epic but what bugs me is that it doesn't have rear lockout or disk brakes. I originally wanted the 08 Specialized FSR XC but the frame was a bit big and something just didn't felt right. I loved the fact it has the stuff I wanted though. I'm beginning to look at Trek's Fuels, can anyone recommend an bike around $800-$1500? I would be damn grateful. BTW how is the GT Sensor 3.0?

    Dude, the Epic doesn't NEED rear lockout -- it has this little thing called a "Brain" shock, that uses some interesting spring-loaded/hydraulic tricks to keep the thing from bobbing or activating at all unless you hit a bump. Now, DISCS, I can see your problem; I'll never be without discs again.

    Since it sounds like your wishlist of features is pretty high, look for the cheapest bike you can find that has all that you want, then spend THAT.
