No. You're not going to get a $400 bike that is the same as a $1000 Full Susupension Stumpjumper. If you could everybody would . . . right?
If you are looking for a good $400 bike I suggest the Gary Fisher Wahoo. The sticker price on mine was $399. Now that it's end of the season you may be able to get a 2004 for closeout prices. Mine fits me well and gives a good ride. Find one at a LBS and take a test ride.
