Oh Wolf- get an 18" frame if you wanna do any good mtn biking on it. 20+" frames aren't as nimble, even if you fit somewhat comfortably on it. Aluminum is stiff but is one of the best materials to toss around on either downhill or through singletrack. Steel (Chromoly) is good for the urban jungle or as a cheapy thrashing bike as you can bend parts back if you need to.

I tried putting a little web page together ages ago with links to various parks out there and it does still need tons of updating but since I've got it, feel free to check it out. There are links to maps and stuff for some of the parks out in the South Bay.
What's the URL?
