    Help with buying a new mountain bike

    I am looking for a new mountain bike for spring. I am looking for something under $500.00...... So far that seems to limit me to low end bikes. The best deal I have found is a Giant Boulder SE 2010 model with disk brakes for $360.00.

    I do a lot of riding with my kids and that is on our local rail trail. I also do a fair bit of riding on the local off road trails. Nothing to crazy, but I need failrly aggressive tires.

    Suggestions?

    I picked up my bike off of craigslist. It was an older specialized full suspension bike with some upgraded components. I figured i would rather spend the money on a good used bike vs a cheaper new bike. I don't ride that often so I'll never "wear out" my bike.
