Hi guys I need a bike that can handle regular trail riding, some park riding, and a bit of enduro. Price point is no higher than $2,500, no SX eagle. Thank you for your suggestions! Hardtail or full suspension.

Why are you against SX?

geo isn't super new or anything but part spec is pretty ok.
it has a super deluxe select plus and trp brakes.

or if you can find a dealer near you:
https://www.marinbikes.com/bikes/2021-alpine-trail-7
is a better specced bike imo

If you buy a hardtail you should be able to get a very nice build from your brand of choice.
I know inventory is pretty shot right now, but its not riding season for me right now (sorry if it is for you, that sucks) so if I were you I'd wait it out just a little bit longer. find some local bike shops, call around, check their website relatively often for new stock. I got my new bike a month ago this way. I know it sucks not being able to walk out with a bike like you could a year ago (hell I know a guy who scored a good condition evil insurgent ex demo bike for only $2400 a year ago) but if you call your local shops you might get lucky.
Where are you located? the general area or country might help us help you.

I live in Texas so it's riding season all year long, but I really just want to have the bike before July.

https://www.commencalusa.com/meta-ht-am-race-29-c2x30728144 Does that one seem like good spec for the price? Would love having the 36 up front.

Wallmart has lots with no SX Eagle to fit the needs of a pro rider like yourself.

Yes it does, I dont think a bike above 1600 should have a plastic derailleur.

I was curious and took a look at that bike, wow that's pretty serious for that price! Marin are great frames anyway and 160/150 travel Rockshox yari rc, 203mm rotor in front, if I were negotiating in his price range you'd probably have me sold. I'm impressed w/that.

I know! The Marin is super good value.

The main body of the derailleur is plastic and my local trails are very rocky so I am fairly sure I would break it off.
