It's a decent bike, old platform though, for a beginner to FS it is a very good bike to get. When you get it, do make sure that you check the stays of it every month or so for crack since the fuel's stays are flex stay and that they don't use pivots on them, those flex stays will crack and fail if constantly beat on for 2-3 years, some have gone past that mark some haven't though I've seen one returned due to a crack in the stays 5 months in, person bought it new.
