well if its dh your gunna be doing, adn ur price range isn that high, then id look at a used full suspension, something like this http://www.pinkbike.com/buysell/263272/
( 05 norco a line) or an atomik or just something cheaper. hardtails are no good for dh, but i guess it depends were u are racing . if its jus light dh i guess ud be ok on the sasquatch, but if its actual racing, then id invest in a full suspension. Just dotn chince out on the parts because of money or ull regret it after 10 new rims or something like that.
