    FR / DH options???

    im looking into a new freeride/downhill bike for the 06 season. seems simple...BUT between ALL those componies and ALL that money...it makes it tough, so i need some help slimming it down a bit!...im looking for a FR bike with long travel, but doesn't weigh 60pds and is PERFECT for riding places like whistler, the shore, and DH courses....keep in mind im trying to stay UNDER $4000!!!!

    two words- Transition Dirtbag

    "I'm; young enough to know the right car to buy yet grown enough not to put rims on it. I got that 6-deuce, with curtains, so you can't see me and I didn't even have to put tints on it."

    the transition dirtbag is a great bike that can be built up not too expensively.
    i think mine is great.

    I think they right about $3000 give or take. As for if the 66 would be good, you'll have to ask the resident Shore guy, Maelstrom, he'll let you know. Maybe he'll chime in here.
