    Wow - for a second hand DH bike (I'm assuming its second hand?) that looks to be in fabulous condition! Nice one mate - congratulations.

    You say it's your first DH bike, what have you been riding so far?

    I still remember my first go on a proper DH bike - actually it wasn't all that long ago, but it was a first generation Specliazed Demo 8. Having ridden only a 150mm Spesh Enduro on some of the more technical DH courses in the UK, it was quite a revelation to jump on a DH bike. It takes a bit of getting used to, but once you realise how far you can really go with them they're a hoot!

    Congrats. They are a great bike. Been rocking mine for 6 months now and love it.

    Yes they are heavy, but boy they are strong. Soooooo stable in the air.

    Landed a road gap short yesterday and she just soaked it up!

    Is this the small that was advertised a few weeks back?

    Enjoy.

    Thanks Guys!

    My other bike is a Santa cruz blur LTC, which I love...But recently I have gotten involved with a DH shuttle group, randomly looked at bikes on PInkbike and came across this one...

    Yes I have never been so luck with such a nice 'used' find. The guy selling was in his mid fifties, and bought the frame that was on display somewhere, mid 2008, never put it together till much later, then hardly used it, never took it to a downhill course/park...etc...never dropped...not one scratch on the bottom of the cranks, downtube...bars...etc...gave me a spare built up wheel with new hub...the only thing that was obviously from another used bike is the seat, and the clippless pedals that I took off and replaced with the podiums.

    Fork is hardly broken in and rear shock was tuned for his weight- same as mine aprox...

    yeah i'm thrilled, best $2400 bucks I've ever spent...

    Good buy! The rear hubs alone cost a fortune and you now have two.

    Just took this bike out today for a Gnarly ride, I mean this was steep, rocky, punishing trail and this bike totally handled and even saved my a$$ several times. It just made my day, today. I can't wait to get even more comfortable and really start ripping it!
