    Negative rep for using terms like 'sus' and 'squish.'

    Many things wrong with the approach:

    Value given on BBB is highly generous. Haro Extremes were the schizz in the day. As good of shape as that's in it probably has more (eccentric) collector value than value as a bike.. Do not expect to...

    You will not have fun on your SB95 - - well...not near as much fun as you should have at a bike park. As you said, your 95 is a trail bike with an XC-ish leanings. It's nimble for a 29er but the big...

    Mainly look the frames over closely for any signs of stress cracks, dented downtube, stuff like that. Everything else on a jumper, really, can be considered a consumable.
