    Calling all .243 riders

    Hi!
    Is it possible to use the 243 FR bike as a do-it-all bike ?
    I'm thinking about buying a used bike but I'm not sure its what I need.
    Looking for a fun bike that will serve me on trails and doing lite urban.
    Doing FR can be fun but only after I practice ALOT

    My friend has a .243 FR frame built up as a good do it all bike. He rides mostly park, DJ, FR, and a little DH.

    Here's the run down on the bike...

    Frame: .243 FR
    Fork: Mounitou Travis 150mm
    Cranks: Shimano Saints
    single speed
    Brake: crappy Hayes mech. rear only

    It is VERY heavy, I would say low 40s.
