    need suggestion on bike

    I have been XC and Road riding but want to get back to DH after looking at the Diablo Freeride mountain in Nj. I have a little experience but im older now 38, weigh 180 in good shape. So i am looking for a bike that i can grow with and learn, have fun, and last to get back into Dh. I have been out of the game for a while but is it possible to get good bikes from $1500 to $3000?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Yes.

    You can get great used DH rigs for $1500-$2000.

    You can get a new DH/park bike for Low 2k-3k easy.

    Look at the buy and sell on pinkbike.com to get an idea of market prices for used bikes.

    Websites of big name manufacturers will let you see entry level msrp for new DH/Park rigs.
