A guy I know just got a 2005 Jamis Dakar Sport, but it's too big for him. It's stand-over height is 30.94" and my inseam is 32". I'm 5'11" 215lbs (but losing some more weight, ideal weight is 200-205lbs) and a beginner rider. For right now, I will probably stick to trails and perhaps graduate to doing more downhill stuff next year seeing as my ski pass gets me free access to the lifts.
He said he'd sell it to me for $625 shipped, which is a little more than I want to spend, but it is a FS bike. Is that reasonable price or even a decent bike for me or my ability? Do you think I can work him down? He said he worked at a bike shop and got it off of clearance at a good price.
Here are some specs...
-Manitou Splice Fork adjustable from 100 to 130mm.
-Fox Float rear shock
-Avid BB5 disc brakes
-Fire X crank.
