hi all,

i just moved to winnipeg MB in canada 3 weeks ago.
i actually need help in buying a bike here.
im looking for a good used bike a hardtail maybe with disc brakes.
since im new to canada i'd like to ask you guys for your opinion on a canadian brand i saw for sale.
What do you guys think about the bike brand BOSS?
i saw a bike with a good price on it with dual disc brakes, dual suspension, 2 inch travel in front.
is that a good bike?

Sounds like a K-mart bike to me, so I'll have to say no.

I live in winnipeg and I've never heard of BOSS. Gords is one of the best bike shops in the city imo. Also check out Bikes and Beyond.
