    what do you intend to do with it? hit dirt jumps, pump track, bmx track, and skatepark? in that case, you don't need gears or front brakes . . . . most DJ bikes are single speed and rear brake only.

    but if you want those things.... that's fine. just asking.

    yeah those things and i mess around with trials a little 2 why i wanted the front brake. and as far as the gears i take my bike to the mx races and dink on the track. a single speed was killing me was right in town but too high for the hills. don't feel like switching it out all the time. but mainly skate park and bmx track. a little trail with jumps on it to. other reason i want gears. there is an 08 p2 i'm looking at. brand new looking for 600. is this a decent deal?
