DH BIke question

I am new in biking, I would just like to know anything about this Brand "BRONCO", my cousin just gave me this Down Hill bike, just wanted to know its performance and the retail of it, been tryin to search the net, cant even find its whereabouts, I hope you guys can enlighten me. The frame syas Bronco Bullet w/ a double crown fork and Truvativ and Shimano Drivetrain and Kirin Wheelset w/ bontrager tires. Is it good enough? Thanks

Good enough for what?

Generally the better quality bikes are a bit more specific as to what the exact components are. If it was my bike I'd want to test it for a while before I took it off of any 12' drop offs.

I did a quick search and all the Bronco bikes I found were beach cruisers or very low end mtn bikes. About the same quality as X-mart bikes.
Just enjoy riding it until it falls apart.

It would be strange to find that mid-range-sounding parts pick on a Xmart bike. But I've never heard of them either.

Post a pick on the mountain bike forum and see what they say.
