    Bought a Trail Fox 02 Last Week

    Howdy,

    I just got a 21" TF02 the other day, and wanted to post it to get some opinions. I'm a novice when it comes to this stuff, and wanted to know if I got ripped off or paid a reasonable amount.

    It was $950.

    I'm not sure the year, is there a way to tell?

    I don't know much about this mountain biking scene, I made a kind of quick decision. It's my first mountain bike.

    Any comments or opinions? Thx

    Yeah a 08 is it new or used? I would say you did not do bad for the price all of the parts are good. The only problem I see is that is a 120mm frame so you should have a 120mm fork.

    It was used, I got it from craigslist.

    The guy said hes in a bike club and one of his buddies built it frame up. He was selling it because it was a backup, and he had a nice looking Gary Fisher hanging in his garage.

    I couldn't really pretend that I knew much about it.

    I love the ride so far, been using it everyday, have nothing else to really compare it too though. Last bike was a Haro BMX when I was 13ish. 22 now.

    Ive been browsing the forums here, I figure eventually I'll start to be familiar with the bike parts/companies et cetera.

    Thanks for the responses

    I love BMC I have the same bike but a 09 and I cant complain about anything. It does not bob when pedaling it soaks up the bumps good and its fast.

    Yep, an 07

    I've got the same frame as well with the only difference being that mine has a Monarch 4.2 shock.
