Gary Fisher Vs. Ironhorse.

So, there is a 2002 (I think) Gary Fisher Hoo Koo E Koo for sale on craigslist. I was about to buy an Ironhorse Warrior 3.6, but this is a very goo deal. If I bought the Gary Fisher, I would buy a new fork woth the difference in cost of the bikes ($225), or should I just keep the stock one (Manitou Magnum R). Also, the other think is the Ironhorse has discs, and the HKEK does not. What would you do?

P.S- How much would a Magnum R go for?

That's easy, get the ironhorse and ride it 'till it dies, then get the Giant Glory DH and kill every bike!

First the gf is rigid an the IH is DS if my brain donīt fail.Take the best bike that match with your stile. Dont worry about the fork. In a couple of months you will have enought money to take a good fork.

Itīs better a new bike than a snd hand.

I have a Rocky Mountain since four months and it īs not finish, but it will be perfect.

Hey guys, just to clarify, the Warrior 3's are hardtail, same with the 5's, the 4's and 6's are ds. For example, Ironhorse Warrior 3.6= Hardtail, IH Warrior 5.3= Hardtail, IH Warrior 4.0=DS, Ih Warrior 6.0=DS.
