Well i just recently sold my bmx bike, and i was looking into buying a decent mountain bike for trails. i dont need anything fancy.. i was looking into some eastern completes since i rode some of there bmx parts i know they are a solid company. So basically i just want to know a decent complete for around $350

Nice! Many people start out on hardtails and move up from there. For what you've mentioned, I think a cheap used hardtail would be best.

Check out our classifieds, ridemonkey.com, and mtbr.com for a bunch of options. Most used hardtails priced $500+ will have a decent parts kit, and you can always upgrade as you progress. I'd suggest a short (50-60mm) stem, wide bars, and 2.3 inch tires as your first upgrades.

You mean trails in the BMX sense not the XC sense, right? I like the geometry of my Thunderbird for trails in the BMX sense, can't tell you about the Traildigger though. Their completes aren't the best but they get the job done for sure.

QBP is a distributor for Eastern so any local shop should be able to order you one without being a dealer.
