The Felt Q520 is a sure bet in the under $600.00 category of entry-level mountain bikes. For two hundred dollars more you can step up to the Q620 which includes a lock-out equipped front fork and hydraulic disc brakes.  But if you can live without those two upgrades your talking about virtually the same bike. For my money the Q520 is the real deal.
