    09 Coil Air for a Beginner?

    I have an opportunity to buy a new one of these real cheap. I would use it most of the season for trail riding down in Tallahassee FL and around there. But in the summer i would use it for AM and some light DH. So i was just wondering if it would be a good bike to increase my skills on?

    I would say it's probably a good next step. Depending on the model year it's a big travel bike and it won't be the most friendly pedaling bike out there, but it's tough and made to smooth out some serious abuse. If you can test ride it, do that and see what you think.
    Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it octopus?
