    New question here. 2004 Giant Warp DH1 info

    My buddy is planning to get a 2004 Giant Warp DH1. You guys have any good or bad info on this bike? Or is there another bike in this price range a better buy?

    I've heard that the Warps are kinda heavy, but the DS1 seems to be spec'd pretty decent(for the money) with a judy sl, deore stuff and avid 6" mechs. If he's into XC, the Trek Fuel 70($950) is lighter but not spec'd as nice. If he's into fr/dh, the Spec. Big Hit SPEC(SinglePivotElevatedChainstay) is $880 for a Marz 120mm fork, deore stuff, truvativ single ring cranks, hayes 8" mechs and ditch witch rims. But the 5.5" single pivot with the X-fusion(?) shock won't ride like a Horst Big Hit. Would make an ok/cheap trailbike if it didn't weigh 39#.

    Forgot others-

    GF Sugar 4+, Spec FSR XC, Kona Kikapu, Jamis Dakar, KHS XC's...but I don't know anything about these.

    I would say that in that price range, the components will all be fairly similar.
