    Downhill starter bike?

    Hey

    I am looking for a good beginner downhill bike, could any one of you recomend some bikes?

    I have been looking at some few bikes, MONGOOSE Salvo Sport, GIANT YUKON FX1 and MONGOOSE TEOCALI ELITE. Are any of these bikes good?

    i hope you can help me

    None of those are downhill bikes by any stretch of the imagination.

    Specialized Big Hit would make a good starter bike, as would a used Iron Horse Sunday or Kona Stinky or Stab of most any vintage.
