Here's a post that's not very e-bike related, but if anyone here rides downhill bikes and can help me out, it would be awesome.
A DH course is about to open up on a local ski resort. The season won't be long, first snow will probably be in a month or so. I've done some XC and a little freeride biking at a nearby mountain biking park and I really like it. The course looks awesome and I've become interested in trying downhill, so I'm shopping for a DH bike.
Some guy on craigslist is selling a used 2004 giant DH comp, with a 2006 rockshox boxxer race fork, a 2005 manitou swinger in the rear, and Hayes nine hydraulic brakes for $650. There currently aren't a lot of cheap downhill bikes on craigslist in my area and I'm kind of a tightwad, so this bike seems like a decent deal for me. I could probably bargain him down to $450, since he's including a helmet and pads that don't fit me.
If I bought it, didn't like DH biking as much as I thought, and parted it out for sale, do you guys think I could get my money back? Tell me your thoughts!
