How much should I be looking to spend for a decent mountain bike? It will be 80/20 road/mountain. I need adult size, mens and decent quality. I want something reliable and will last for many years.

What's the best bike place to buy from? I'm thinking tuxedo?

Is it worth the extra for disc brakes? Dual suspension over just front suspension? A buddy of mine said to check out Sport Mart, but after testing out a couple there I wasn't all that impressed.

I'm hoping to find a decent bike for say $500?
