Dude... Killer deals at Arts for an Intense Spider Pro. Nearly a $7000 bike goin for $3600, say what!!! Seriously one of the best bang for you buck situations here. Save some of that money and you can put it towards a little upgrade on your component choosing (i.e. Some sweet Santa Cruz Reserve wheels?) There's free shipping too Beer

Not sure what size you need but I bought a carbon Genius 700 premium new in box for half price on Ebay earlier this year and love it. Full XTR under $4k

There's lots of good options for trail bikes these days. Not limited to things like Trek Fuel Ex, Transition Scout or Smuggler, YT Jeffsy, Specialized Stumpjumper, Giant Trance, Evil Following or Calling, etc.

I feel you can't go wrong with any of those options. Of the list above I have ridden the Trek, Transitions, and Stumpjumper. I also own a Jeffsy. All great bikes. They have similar geo's, spec dependent on price. The cheapest in that bunch are probably Giant Trance or YT Jeffsy. You order YT's right from the manufacturer so no middle man. You can also order Giant right from their website but they have local dealers as well to test out rides.

You have a lot of potential with 5k. You can get a brand new mid to high end bike with that, or buy a pimped out, decked, used one. Really your choice.

Diamondback just put out the new carbon release, comes very well specced for the price and is under 5k. You can order right from their website and has free shipping.

5k? That narrows it down to about 900 options...

I’d check out the Rocky Mountain Altitude C50. Been super happy with mine so far. One of the best all rounders in my opinion.

I second the RM Altitude as a great do-it-all bike. But I bought my 770 Rally Edition on Pinkbike for less than half what he is willing to spend. Came with XTR brakes and drivetrain with oneUp 40t just like I wanted. Only changes I made were chainring from 32t to 36t, add a stealth ping bell, and after some experimenting changed the Ride-9 to position 8. Rode hard yesterday and today; still amazed with how it handles.
2018s come with Fox 36 instead of 34s like mine and 11 speed instead of 10, so even better.....Don

Going off of that I've spent two days at Whistler with my Altitude and rode it on A-line, Duffman, No Joke-drop in clinic, dirt merchant, bunch of flow, tech, and jump trails. Threw it in the 2nd slackest setting and it cleaned all that stuff no problem. You can also pedal it all day easily. Not sure why there isn't a full review yet on PB, but it'll unleash your inner Remi and Jesse trust me lol

Good deal, but you can get one of these for $1500:
BEIOU Carbon Dual Suspension Mountain Bicycles All Terrain 27.5 Inch MTB 650B Bike SHIMANO DEORE 10 Speed 12.7kg T700 Frame Matte 3K CB22

Not the best components but not bad either. You could upgrade as you go along and still come out way ahead.

For some reason the bike industry has unusually high overhead and margins.
