Mongoose Wing super or Iron Horse Maverick Pro?

Well I've been out of moutain biking for a while but I'm looking to get back in. I need a good quality FS bike that is kind of allmountain as my riding is in between XC and DH.

I'm looking to spend under $500, so I think I've narrowed it down to the 2005 mongoose Wing Super ( Or the 2006 Iron Horse Maverick Pro DS (Or Maverick XC? I'm not sure I understand the real difference).

Any opinions are appreciated, thanks in advance!

um, okay, does anyone at least have an opinion on any of those? thanks.
If you save up a bit more you can get the Iron Horse Warrior trail, which is a really sweet bike.
Price 649-10%= $585

That is a whole lot of bike for that price.

Check it out

-10%? If I could get it for 585 that might be doable. And it does look like a pretty sweet bike, I was looking at that warrior trail pic thread in the Iron Horse forum... Badass :D
That is a great bike for trail riding. I have the pro and it does great on the ups and the downs. The Sram drivetrain is top notch and tons better than anything shimano. Yeah there's always a 10% off for prefeormance.
They usually have an updated coupon.

Just noticed its a lot cheaper on RScycle website
They have it listed as 559. You also get free shipping and a free pack of a bunch of stuff.
rs4th code for the free stuff it ends the 9th of july.

Thats a sweet deal there.

Just make sure you get the right size and that it fits what you will be riding.

thanks for the link. One question though, how well does the single pivot work? I had been under the impression that they sucked for climbing.
If i sit down there is no bobbing at all from the rear of my Warrior pro. I can also stand up and hammer in the middle chain ring in front without any bob. If i stand up in the little chainring then the back will bob and loose some grip, of course that is fixable if you keep a steady motion, instead of a viscious hammer. The Pivot works great for all around riding.

Of course, the Warrrior pro has a fox vanilla R shock on it with Pro pedal. But i'm sure that you won't have too much trouble even with the X fusion one, as long as you have the right spring rate for your weight.
