First mountain bike - advice please

Apr 23, 2020
Hi guys,
Although I'm a cycling fanatic, I haven't cycled bikes for many years.
Anyway, I have a lot of free time now and I would like to get back on the bike, but off the road. I'm thinking of a budget mountain bike for $900.
Any and all suggestions much appreciated.

The bottom bracket, cranks and pedals and hubs are all complete junk on that bike.
Its a $500 bike. Is there a bike at that price with better BB, cranks, hubs, and pedals? Point the OP to it. I was just trying to give one direction to the OP (yep from my LBS). I honestly don't know anything about bikes at that price point.

get full suspension if you can. I got a budget hardtail bike when I got back into it and immediately wished i'd forked out on full suspension
