depends bro, first anwser a few of these questions so we can help you out a little better...

1. how much are you looking to spend?
2. what type of riding do you plan to do with it, ie: cross-country, downhill, just riding along?
3. do you want full-suspension, hard-tail, rigid frame?

Mongoose and GT are not what they used to be. Schwinn either.

Maybe there MTBs are ok, im speaking more from my world.

www.alwaysmad.com is a local (gtaish) mtb board.

I ride a full suspension Santa Cruz Heckler (for sale) and am thinking of buying a hardtail...

Will probably look at Specialized and Rocky Mountain.
