    Opinions on 2004 Trek Fuel 95

    I am looking for a good used dual suspension bike, primarily for XC type riding here in CO (probably 80% of it's use), and occasionally some fun downhill (Winter Park! maybe 20% of it's use), and wanted to find out what all of your opinions are on the 2004 Trek Fuel 95...
    I need to go take a look at it more closely, and see if it fits me well, but the price seems reasonable ($650), if it's a good bike. Thanks!

    It was a $2500+ bike new so yes, it's a good deal. No, I wouldn't do any sort of DH on that bike. It's designed for XC so it's not meant for any serious drops and without a warranty, you'd be screwed.

    True, no warranty would be bad if i break something... But I really can't find a new dual suspension bike that I want, for under $1000 Which is why I was looking for something used, that could do double duty if it had to (almost all the riding will be cross country type trails around Boulder / Golden / Lyons). My 19 year old Stumpjumper didn't break! But I couldn't go as fast as I wanted because of the fork...

    How about a 2007 Rocky Mountain ETSX 70 ?

    Don't think I can get the price at or below 1000, but one for sale that looks to be in great shape from the photos, a 15" frame though, so might be too small..
