    Advanti Lighting

    gday guys. first post here.
    i recently bought an 05 Advanti Lighting. this bike is majory kickass, i bought it to do the great victorian bikeride because my old mongoose started to fall apart. bloody hunk of crap... but anyway. what can this bike do. how hard do u recomen di push it. cos i wanna do dirt jumps and stuff like that, bit of downhill style riding. i was wanting a freeride dirt bike but that was a bit expensive and this was on sale. so after the big ride, how far do u rekon i could push it. without stufin things up

    It looks like a fairly durable , maybe not the lightest, mountain bike that should stand up to some heavy use . Use it hard , but don't abuse it , and it should last a long time(with proper up-keep)

    I do not have a MB, but I think this forum is USA orientated & doubt Avanti is marketed there. [can't be sure though]
    You may have more chance at http://www.cyclingforums.com/f32-gen...bike-chat.html because "cyclingforums.com" also has an Australian & New Zealand Regional forum also.
    Avanti is a New Zealand bike mob.
