What should I look for in a sub-1K mountain bike?

Which low/mid range mountain bike should I get? I'm a reasonably serious road rider, but now find myself living in an area where the road biking leaves a lot to be desired (and, frankly, the local drivers and roads have me worried for my safety). The mountain biking is supposedly fantastic, so I'd like to give that a try. I'm not looking to do jumps, but am happy ascending and doing controlled descents. This will be an off-road only bike used near Albuquerque, NM. [more inside]

DIY bike repair?

I just bought a mountain bike on the cheap and want to make some changes, namely adjust the shifters (or perhaps change them altogether), and replace the handlebars. Is this a rookie-doable project or should I take it to a shop? [more inside]

Sweat out your demons -- refill with H2O

I remember ads from maybe the late 90s / early 2000s in bike magazines (especially mountain bike magazines) from Camelbak. These were fullpage ads, with a caption something like "Sweat out your demons -- refill with H2O." The one I remember distinctly had a photo of a mountain biker on a Utah-esque rock drinking from the Camelbak. Anyone know where I could get copies of these?
