    GT Sanction 1.0 for All Mountain and some Down Hill?

    So I am looking at getting a full suspension bike. I have access to a decent amount of XC - AM trails and that is what I will be riding most of the time, there are also a few DH trails and one DH park near me as well (they aren't especially crazy as far as DH goes, but they are DH non the less) , and I would like the ability to hit those as well. Basically I am looking for a "do it all bike" and was wondering if this 2008 GT Sanction 1.0 that I found in my price range would fit the bill.

    Here is a link to the ad for anyone that is curious 2008 GT Sanction 1.0 For Sale

    Let me know what your thoughts are, thanks in advanced!

    I should mention that I have a 29er hard tail. This will be used on the less gnarly trails where a 6" full suspension bike would be absolute overkill.

    they're a gnarly bike, super capable, but seems to be a bit over priced to me. Not sure what the 2nd hand market is like over there, but in Australia, what a bike retailed for seven years ago means squat. I picked up a 09 force here, a couple of years ago for $400 dollars, stuck a dropper on it and away it went.

    So yes to the bike, but it'll be a bit heavy for XC stuff, but will smash the downy stuff. But no to the price.

    Look at a Force 2010-12, swap some parts for beefier gear and you'll be closer to the do it all part.

    I'd personally be looking at an early V1.5 Rune though.
