    New bike, Diamondback XR1

    hey guys im new here and new to mountain biking. I dont have one yet but am looking for my first mountain bike. I will mainly be riding single track cross country in the oregon mountains. Would this bike be a good one for me?

    the most important thing about buying any bike is does it fit you ... its not a deal if it is the wrong size ... and its a 10 year old bike that needs work as stated in the ad ... if it fits you offer him $200 and see what happens

    you might ask in the Diamondback forum and see what they say
    I used to ride to Win ... Now I ride to Grin

    While my guitar gently weeps, my bike sits there mocking me

    I would be slightly skeptical on this part:
    I just put in $300 in parts like a new cassette, chainring, and brakes.
