    2006 Yakuza Ojiki

    Hey i just bought a 06 Ojiki which looks to be hardly used off of ebay for 850 shipped and I was wondering if this was a good price and if it is a good bike for learning down hill on.

    well too late to find if its a good price...you already bought it so it doesnt matter.

    you're not gonna win any DH races or huck massive drops, but it's a good starting point. what fork and rear shock did it come with?

    also, people tend to forget what MTBR stands for...MTB Reviews:

    really really base build. shock isnt all that great...neither is the fork. but for the price, thats the kind of components you're going to expect. the frame itself should be fine. just ride it till stuff breaks, then upgrade as you progress your skills.

    Dude, don't buy it, no way. I got a 05 Norco Shore, 888r, DHX 5.0, Syncros wheels for that price. Adjustable geometry and travel, horst link rear suspension, waaaaay better bike. You can find them going for that cheap all the time on Pinkbike.com classifieds.

    I wouldn't even buy that bike... Manitou Metal shock and 150mm Dropoff, yuck, it's gonna ride like poo.
    Bike good, work bad.

    thats the bike i learned on and i had it for 2 seasons and nothing aver broke on it, the thing is a little heavy but it takes whatever you can throw at it. i loved that bike but i needed to move on, i sold mine for 800 so yeah it would be a good deal. it would be worth it to replace the rear shock though, the metel is so terrible.
