I am a complete noob when it comes to buying a GOOD bike lol...maybe because where I live, there aren't any real good ones that are a good price...(like how many times I said good?) I'm looking for full suspension, can handle anythign because I am very hard on my bike...all the bikes that I'm sure most of you are all aware of are way too expensive for what I can afford....which is around 300-$500 Canadian. We do have a local bike shop but, all their prices are out rageous...( for me anyway :p) My parents aren't too keen on the buying of stuff off the net, which I don't blame em for...So, any suggestions?...please don't use terminology I may not understand lol. Thank you all in advance!...and happy trails!

Yes, a good suggestion is to save your money untill you can buy a bike that is around 400-450 US, and get the one with the rigid fork if possible because it will come with better components, and later when you can afford a suspension fork you can get something decent and have decent components and a decent fork, rather than the 350-400US bikes that come with crappy suspension forks and crappy components (they have to downgrade the rest of the bike to make way for the crappy fork)....

Saving your money is probably the hardest thing to do, but in the end it is ALWAYS worth it...

Save my money huh...your right, that is the hardest thing to do... lol... Well, atm I'm trying to save up for a new pc...one that is ALOT faster than this one...I'm a huge gamer so...I'm sure you can understand why now lol. In saying that, I'm not the one paying for my bike...which in some aspects, is sweet...but sucks as well. Getting a job is easier said then done around here...which is why I should try to stay in school lol. Well...thanks for the advice, appreciated much, and happy trails!
