Used 2008 Rocky Mountain ETSX 70?
I want to pick up a used full suspension bike. I need to get something on the less expensive side. I found what looks to be a lightly used 2008 Rocky Mountain ETSX 70, for a price I can afford. I have been researching and came upon possible frame issues. Do you think that this is something to worry about.
A little about how the bike will be used.
I started mountain biking about 27 years ago
Haven't been riding much the last few years
Have been riding dual sport motos instead
I'm fat(about 200 #'s) and out of shape
Started really getting back (for me) into mountain biking this year
I ride mostly XC with some bike park riding(no big hucking of the bike)
Riding the front range of Colorado, probably the west slope, and Moab
I put in about 35 miles last week, and trying to ride as much as possible
Currently riding a 1999 Schwinn Hardtail Homegrown
One more question Is it easy to get pivot bearings/ bushings and rebuild kits for forks/ shocks??
Thanks for any input
