Hi, im new on the forum and I'm also new to the world of mountain bike. i want to start DH and Free-Riding, and i got an opportunity ( i think so lol ) to buy a New 2008 Marin Quake 7.1 for 1600$ Can ( I'm From Quebec ). the bike has been won in a competition at Whistler,BC and has never been used. I know the guy who is selling it but barely so I want to be sure if the price he's asking is a good deal or not. i think this bike would be a good one to start.

any comment is welcome
