    hmmm, maybe try to find a used hardtail and put a front fork that will take a disc, then try to find a cheap cable pull disc for the front. but other than that, you are asking alot for a little. i think 300 euro is like $350 usc, about all that will buy over here is a good bmx bike... or like some tires and a sprocket guard, maybe a cassette too...

    The 2 lowest priced complete jumpers in mtb action are
    GT Chucker 2.0 $450 retail
    Mongoose Fireball $450

    I would find a Azonic DS-1 frame,4" Fork,cheap components.!
    You just need more money for a quality bike....

    Kona makes some pretty good hardtails for cheap.

    haro's are pretty cheap, but some of the components they use are sketchy (wheels/fork especially). I'd definitely recommend buying something used.
