Dude.....its a "26 inch GT", and obviously its rigid because it seems like he wants a suspension fork for it. $500 for a no name rigid GT? Nah.....I think he'd know what he paid for it anyway.

Leave him alone everybody. My first bike was a huffy but who the hell cares. I was riding.

Truth is, he took your ('you' in the collective sense) advice, bought a GT and not a no-name piece of crap, got a good deal (I've bought good bikes for $1. You just have to know where to look.)
Soo... he's riding! I say good for him! Besides, he'll learn the basics on a rigid bike that wont cover mistakes like suspension will.

If he's lying, then start ignoring hist posts.
