1) Your budget. How much do you have to spend on the bicycle (not including accessories such as helmet, gloves and other accessories).

$800 - $1100

2) What bikes, if any, are you already considering? (Please try to limit the selection to a handful if at all possible, and provide links to those bikes. Remember, we don't always know the exact specs of all the bikes out there!)

I have looked at the Kona Jake, Specialized Rockhopper and Trek 8000.

3) What type of riding do you intend to do? (e.g. Cross Country, Freeride, Downhill, paved paths)

Cross country.

4) Do you have a preference over a hardtail or full suspension?

I was told one can get a good hardtail for my budget, so I will go with that. I'm a beginner, so if someone recommends full-suspension for me I would consider it...

5) Age, weight and height. (In many instances very important for a variety of reasons).

I'm 21, 6'1, 225 pounds.

6) What sources will you consider buying from? (e.g. Your Local Bike Shop, online vendors, or used bike sources such as mtbr classifieds, craigslist, ebay and others)

I would go to a bike shop.

7) Do you want people to offer you alternative suggestions to issues such as budget, bikes already considered, and sources
