    What do you think of this bike--- Cannondale Downhill MBX

    Hello,

    I plan to buy a second hand full suspension bike for weekend exercise. I found the following bikes from the local craigslist. Please give me some suggestion which one you think is a better deal. Thanks for your help.

    the seller told me it is a team bike and she paid more than $4,000 few years before.

    #2 http://www.bikepedia.com/QuickBike/B...5747&Type=bike

    The seller said he used it only for 6 month and he paid $2,600 with upgrates. The bike is in good condition with no dents. Now he is asking for $500.

    I am new for MBT and all I want is a good reliable bike for cross country in local park.

    Regards,

    Jing

    Steer clear of the C'dale. ANCIENT (98 or so) Super V DH; Moto fork sucked. Everything about it sucked.

    FSR XC is still a viable and well-performing FS to this day. If everything is in very good shape, it's as much worth $500 as anything.
