    Should I make this trade??

    Dude wants to trade his not even broken in yet 2004 Boxxer World cup, straight up for my ridden one season 2003 blue Dorado (TPC+). After owning a Dorado for a season, I'm pretty much fed up with the maintenance that they require. Dude lives basically next door to a manitou service centre, so he's good to go.
    I ride mostly DH/with some FR, and it would go on my 2003 Turner DHR.
    Is this a good trade?

    well i'd keep the dorado if it were mine, but seeing as you are fed up with the maintenance it couldn't hurt to get a boxxer...

    No way!!

    If you are fed up with your Dorado, then sell it for $900+. Then get a shiver or 888r. Trading a Dorado for a boxxer is like trading BMW for a Toyota. At least trade it for a Mercedes. Or sell your BMW, and buy a Mercedes.
