    new bike! deal or not?

    hey everyone I recently got this bike for 450, wondering what you guys think of it, I'm pretty positive its a 99' specialized fsr team dh frame, but most the components are newer, the only info i got from the seller is that he got it in 2006. i would appreciate any knowledge someone could shed on this bike
    thanks, greg

    What do you want to know about it? Seems like you already know the year and model, the rest is components.

    I'm just unsure if it is the model i said is because its all unmarked, been powder coated, the fork i believe is from 2004,(if marzocchi puts an "04" to specify the year) if anything i would think it was put together by a bike shop and resold but i don't know of bike shops really do that

    It is a 15 year old DH bike.....newer components or not....that is pretty old.
    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
    The carbon is way more durable than most people.
