    So im picking up a 600DS wednesday....

    I wouldnt dare purchase one of these new but a guy in my neighborhood is selling a 2009 or 2010 (he wasnt sure) 600DS in MINT condition for $100. My wifes been wanting a full suspension and if we buy this now it'll give us some time to save up for her and me both nicer bikes (her more than me, I love my Yukon.). Any particular known problems with this bike? Motobecane claims 31.3 lbs which is about the same as my Yukon and I figure if I can find a used fox float or similar air shock for the rear to get rid of the coilover I can save a little weight. It also has no name tires so im sure those will get changed pretty quickly. Then ill just let her ride it until tax refund time.

    Anything in particular I should be concerned about?

    Bike Weight Lost: 2.48lbs (1124g)

    Would you by chance be from OKC? Cause I just saw this bike on Craigslist for $100 as well... and went to research it and found this post. Pretty funny if its the same bike. But I won't try to go snag it real quick from ya! Honestly, for $100 I was thinking along the same lines, but transferring a new fork and my wheels from my hardtail...

    punk! Hope it works out well!
