    how much should i offer and will it fit me?

    http://losangeles.craigslist.org/lgb...261143719.html

    he said it's a 18.5 size so that's about 47cm.

    i ride a 50cm seat tube, 54.5 effective top tube road bike, 110mm stem, 25mm setback post.


    plan for use is riding along my dogs on parks and minor trail riding.

    thanks.

    It's about a 2003 Warp DS3. $275 is about half its original MSRP, so form your own conclusions as to whether or not it is still woth that much.

    The Warp DS3 was the bottom model of the Warp foodchain, with the DS1 and DS2 being higher-end. The Warp suspension was a poor design for trail riding but acceptable for light gravity work; more that a few got people started in downhilling with a little suspension swapping.

    For what you're needing it for, suspension - - especially not-so-good suspension - - is probably not your best choice for the price.

    Thanks. So just stick to front suspension, but better quality?

    Yes, or depending on the path/trail maybe even a rigid. If the paths/trails are paved, gravel, or even a smooth hardpack, I would probably skip the suspension all together.
