Like I said, cheap full supsenion bikes are garbage. You're throwing away money. They aren't real suspension and will do nothing to absorb bumps on the trail. They also won't last.

Go to www.chainreactioncycles.com for a real bike. They have budget bikes that still come with high end components.

I always reccomend newbs to buy a bike that would suit their local trails the best. Find out what type of riding your area offers and what types of bikes the locals ride then go from there.
