    My plan is to use it on free time, mostly weekends, take it on the mountain and ride...Athens is an uphill/downhill city with mad drivers and dangerous air pollution...i want a mountain bike..not really hardcore though

    I'd look for a used Gary Fisher. I don't recall Fisher ever putting out a bad hardtail. Component wise, (Shimano) XTR is the best, followed by XT, then LX and after that alivio or something like that.

    Steel bikes are going to have a nicer ride, but aluminum tends to be a bit lighter but is a bit stiffer. Titanium is the complete shit, but its pretty expensive. Check out E-bay and try to get your hands on an old Bontrager. Those bikes are just bad ass. I've seen frames go for around $200 and bikes sometimes go in the $300-400 range. MTBR.com has lots of reviews on bikes and a classified page as well. Check it out and lemme know if you have any questions.

    Surly makes an absolutely bad ass inexpensive flip flop hub. On the European side I believe Planet X is putting out some good inexpensive stuff as well.
