    2005 Iron Horse Yakuza Aniki: $750: Good for a FR noob?

    My buddy wants to get into mountain biking and will probably be doing some light FR in no time.

    He only weighs 140 lbs. I found this bike for $750 at supergo. Looks to have a good component build considering the price.

    Anyone have experience with this bike or read reviews?

    The frame looks to be built pretty strong. It's advertised as being a Freeride bike. HE won't be doing much more than 4-7 ft drops to tranny eventually.

    What do you guys think? Good enough for a noob?

    heh, the mechs i dont think are super FR resistant, and the splice is really plush, theres no bounciness for jumping(FR is kindof jumping?) it would be overall good i guess, i have those same tires and there beastly...but what do i know im an idiot....

    that would be pretty good for a FS freeride bike. but if you can convince him to get a ht he would get alot better component specs and proly be a bit more durable.
