    I just go buy a new bike.

    I haven't bought a bike since the early 90's so I'm a bit out of the loop.

    I'm not looking to drop 10K on a Specialized, probably like to keep it under a grand.

    What should I consider?

    Do you want full suspension or hardtail?

    If you were able to break the front suspension, your body deserves a full suspension.

    Way too vague a question to answer. Road/Mountain/Hybrid?

    Go to a full size bike dealership carrying Specialized, Trek, and Mongoose and have them let you try a half dozen first.

    Edit: Saw you wrote the word Mountain in the title. My bad. :facepalm:
