My advice is always the same, look for a higher end model with higher end parts. I have found several MTBs in the last few weeks with XT components.

Typically when you find high end parts, it will also have higher end frame materials.

A MTB that originally sold for $900 might be available for $100, while one that originally sold for $250 might be available for $75.

FB marketplace can be a very good place to find bikes, as sellers are using it more and more, while buyers aren't. I've seen some incredible deals on FB marketplace.
