Hello,

I have a budget of up to $700 to get a mountain bike. Any recommendations for models/manufacturers
in this price range? I will not be doing any hard core racing, just pleasure riding.

Thanks! -Paul

Get a bike with just front suspension. something like this Jamis Exile should be under $700
http://www.jamisbikes.com/bikes/03_2exile.html or the Jamis Dakota AL, maybe over $700

depends on the type of riding you do and your own personal preferences. the dakar would probably be
one of the best choices if you want full suspension. i'm still one of those dinosaur hardtail
holdouts, and ride a gary fisher marlin. had it three years and it's been very reliable for my
(admittedly) gentle riding style. i do weigh 235#, however. for a little more money (still under
$700), almost all the bike companies make great hardtails. i don't think you could go wrong with any
of them, just pick a good dealer. smokey
