    New to me

    Picked up this jekyll today, appears to be pretty lightly used. This is my first full suspension and I am looking forward to trying it out...I have never even ridden one for more than a minute. The Lefty is very smooth, good rebound adjustment, and I cant believe how solid the lock-out is. Gotta go pick up a shock pump tomorrow so I can ride it, I weigh at least 50# more than the guy I bought it from and its way soft for me. Pretty pumped to get out after work tomorrow

    Nice bike, now you just have to figure out how to mount that fishing rod and you're all set.

    10' fly rod on the mountain bike...now we're talking


    Well I made a post in the general forum about the first ride, but it was nothing short of spectacular compared to my hardtail. I paid right around $700 (its an '05) for the bike and feels great. I have ridden friends air shocks and never felt anything quite like the lefty on a trail. My confidence is up 10 fold and I have been crushing my personal best times on local trails. I need to do some derailleur adjustments and I'll be very happy with it.

    700 bucks??? not bad, not bad at all. For a 2005 it looks to be in great shape!! I think you got a hell of a deal. Nice find bud
