Having a blast lately doing some very light downhill, so thinking about getting a DH bike. Looking at may be 1500 +/- a couple hundo for a bike. I know this is gonna put me in used market. Currently riding Niner RIP 9 medium as my do-it-all bike.

Looking for something to have fun with and maybe upgrade parts as I go along. Maybe a trip to a bike park once a year. Would like to run a dual crown fork. I'm 5'10" and 223 lbs with no gear. Live in Sunny SD!

Any recommendations or tips would be appreciated. If you have something that fits the bill, please let me know. Thanks!
