    Apollo Creed 7005

    Does anyone have any thoughts on this bike? I am thinking about it. The seller is selling it for $115. Here's some pictures thanks.

    well for sarters, the fork is installed BACKWARDS!

    I wouldnt consider this an "all mountain bike either"

    i would look elsewhere.

    you can probably find a decent stumpjumper or rockhopper from several years ago in that price range.

    Yep, the fork is backwards. The brakes should be facing forward, not backward. Also, it looks like this bike will have about 1" of suspension before the seat post collides with the rear triangle.

    IMHO, its a POS, worth maybe $40 for a kids starter bike, not near $115. I also doubt its made for rugged trail use.

    Did anyone notice in the second picture that the seat tube is broken in half?

    definitely buy it, its probably worth more then 115, you should probably offer him more so as to not cheat him.

    Dood. Sweet ride. The fork is "backwards", but as the front brake engages, the stanchions will twist inwards applying more force to the rims. Stroke of genius, IMHO. I'm not just making this stuff up...
