In the spring, once snowboarding season is out of the way I should have some money for a new bike and I thought I'd try something a little different and go with a full suspension setup so I can progress into a little more aggressive riding. I can get any Felt or KHS bike for about 30%-35% off however I'm open to suggestions from other brands as well. From Felt I was looking at http://feltracing.com/09-catalog/suspension-mountain/virtue-series/09-virtue-3.aspx or http://feltracing.com/09-catalog/suspension-mountain/compulsion-series/09-compulsion-4.aspx and from KHS I was looking at http://www.khsbicycles.com/03_xct_535_09.htm or http://www.khsbicycles.com/03_xc_604_09.htm I basically just want something solid that's good for all-mountain type stuff. Suggestions?

couple of thoughts

1) you should likely get better answers over in the AM forum or bike/frames forum.

2) The felt is more XC oriented with a 70 degree HT, so it will feel twitchy and will be challenging going downhill; the KHX has a 69 degree HT so won't be quite a fast steering, but still close.

Define better what you want to do with the bike, then come back and tell us.
