Hi, need some suggestions on this bike
Hi guys, I'm fresh new to the sport, a friend of a friend is selling this bike for 1,000 us, this is the only info I can get from him.
Frame Litespeed pisgah 26" (don´t know the year, help me if you can)
He told me that the rims are made of ceramic.
He told me that the brake system cost around 700 bucks
The fork (if I understand well ) is kinda hybrid pneumatic/hidraulic
Is all the info I can access right now.
here is a pic
I´m 34 years old, weight 180 lbs, height 6'2"
I'll use the bike for XC and some downhill, I will like to start whit a HT for the invesment, my budget is 1000 to 1200 max.
Btw I live in Mexico wi don´t have the same prices and options you have in the US, my alternative buy could be a cannondale sl3 29"HT.
Thanks for the help.
I'm just taking a guess and say that the frame is 2008-2009? Also, for how long has the bike been used? You shouldn't buy it if it has been used everyday in the past years. There are so many things that can appear and ruin it all. The Cannondale sl3 seems a good option as well - that's what I would go for, at least.
First off, he isn't telling you the truth, that frame looks to be a late
90's frame, as it has v-brakes. And those v-brakes did NOT cost $700 dollars!
Picture is really bad, but it also looks like the chain has seen it's days(rusty).
Ether take a better picture and post it so members can see it better, or
in my humble opinion, don't buy it for what he is asking, way to much!

Thanks for your help guys. I´ll go tomorrow to my LBS and I´ll be bothering you guys on the models they have in stock to decide wich one is the best bang for the buck.
