    2000ish Cove Handjob

    I've been wanting an xc/am bike for a long time now, but can't afford a nice 6" travel fully like I want. So, to get me by, I was thinking maybe this cove handjob might do the trick. The Guy is asking $300. I just don't know how good an almost 11 year old steel frame would be for me. I typically like riding aggressively. My main bike now is a Turner dhr.

    $300 is expensive for a hand job.

    ...Alright I had to say that. What's the drivetrain consist of? If you like riding aggressively I would advise waiting until you can afford a better bike.

    What year is your DHR? The new ones have a pretty good pedaling platform--definitely not the worst bike to pedal uphill.

    Hahaha, yup. I should have just said that on my post hu?
    Shimano brakes, sram 9.0 derailuer and shifters, truvative cranks. I have heard the handjobs are a bit slacker than most xc frames and were pretty tough. But its still old
    And the dhr is an 08. Good enough to pedal to the dh trails, bit too much bike to pedal the xc trails on.

    I have one...
    It's a really noodlely frame...like I can get the front and rear to track different lines. If you're over 160, it'll be a very flexy frame for you.

    Edit: oh yeah, there's nothing "AM" about this frame...it's a 100% XC frame.
    Naysayers never apologize. Critics go to their grave thinking everyone else is wrong.

    i'm 210, can't feel any flexiness...
    and 67 HA is firmly in AM territory, as his the clearance for big tires.
    it may be "XC" for Cove, but North Shore's XC is "AM" for the rest of the world...

    Thanks for the help guys. I think I'll pass this one up.
