    New question here. Fusion strangler for all mountain?

    Hey everyone

    Looking at getting my first all mountain bike (second hand specifically, cheap and able to jump well.)

    I was wondering if A 2007 Fusion Strangler 4x would be suitable for some all mountain riding. I was thinking that maybe putting two rings up front would make it more suitable for the climbs?

    I should be able to get it for around $853.40 USD

    Any way here are some specs:
    Fox FloatR rear shock
    Rock shox Recon UTurn 130mm coil (2007)
    X0 shifter, X9 rear derailleur
    Formula Brakes
    XT cranks

    All thoughts and opinions appreciated cheers

    I know the owner of that bike and she used to shred on it.... it is a 4x race bike tho dude so the rear end is more about taking big hits than smoothing out the roughies. I say go for it, it's well specced for the price. Pity you'll never be as quick as the young lady who owns it now.

    Firstly I appreciate the comment greatly!
    Secondly don't ever tell some one they will never be as good as someone, positive thoughts make positive outcomes
