    Need Help Finding Downhill Bike

    Hey so I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right thread but I was wondering if any of you guys knew of a good site aside from pinkbike.com where I can find a good DH bike I could trade my rig for. Any thoughts.

    An 07 Cannondale Caffeine. Well...a Caffeine frame. The rest of the bike has been upgraded so its a full on AM/FR rig. Perfect condition. I've been getting some interested people but nothing promising.

    Isnt the caffeine an XC frame designed around an 80mm fork?

    Some kid on pinkbike may classify it as a full on FR rig, try trading it there.....

    The 29'er is. Yes its an XC frame but the fork has 110mm and its PERFECT for AM/DJ/XC

    1. This DJ Caffeine idea is awesome. Laughing pretty hard right now.
    2. Forget a trade, not going to happen.
    3. Sell the Caffeine, but something else.
    Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it octopus?

    I see classified listings pretty often for people looking to unload their DH rig for a completely different type of bike. I've even seen people looking to trade for a laptop and other stuff. So the idea of his trading his XC bike for a DH bike (plus some cash, probably) isn't out of the question. Just don't list the bike as a "full on AM/FR rig", because it clearly isn't.

    1. The Caffeine did great as a DJ bike.Kept up with "actual" DJ bikes at the park with no problem.
    2. I got a built race-ready Bighit for my Caffeine. So...the trade did happen

    Touche.

    It's still not a jump bike though.
