    I'm not the best mtn biker and I don't know a lot yet but from what I see you got a pretty good deal. Its actually a really good looking bike, wouldn't mind having it myself.

    Does it ride well? Does it fit you correctly? Are you fine with spending 350 on it? If so, I'd call that a good deal.

    Cool looking ride
    No idea on retail price but seems like a solid deal.
    Seems like more of a DH bike or park bike, not a single track or even a all mountain.
    I'm sure it's over 40lbs

    I haven't had the chance to ride it yet in the mountains since I just recently moved to Denver, Colorado. It fits me pretty well, the frame size is large and I am 5' 11" 165 lb.

    yeah it's heavy for sure, I'm going to weigh it at the shop in the next couple days. I plan on riding it for DH, All mountain, and trail. I'm not sure how well it's going to perform on the ups though

    I have a feeling it's not going to climb very well. seems like a bike that needs a ski lift or a ride in a pickup truck to get to the top of the mountain.

    Sweet ride, it'll only make you stronger on the ups, my 16 year old has a dh bike he rides everywhere. People always say he is going to have a hard time but no one can keep up with him.
