    New to DH Riding

    Hello,

    I am new to Downhill coming from a strict XC background... I am wanting to get into this type of riding but am on a budget so decided to scower craigslist.

    Found a Jamis Diablo 1.0 on there for $375 with a Marzocchi Drop Off IV dual crown fork, Manitou Swinger 4 Way 175mm travel rear shock. It was recently serviced and all that needs to be done is the rear brake has to be bled. It has no frame cracks.

    This is what she looks like

    I've heard nothing bad about Jammis over the years but have heard of them very little... as far as I know they are the same quality of other bikes in their category.

    For $375 is this a good deal?

    Thanks!

    For $375 is not bad for a starter. Remember, 90% of modern 2016 parts will fit
