My first post!

Hello, fellow MTB'ers! I'm new into MTB and just recently purchased a used 03 Cannondale Jekyll w/ a Marzocchi Bomber fork (120mm), Hope mini hydro's, Fox float rear shock, Raceface headset for $600, do you all think this is a good deal? I borrowed my friend's Jeckyll last week and I couldn't believe how fast I was going down this one trail that was full of huge stones, tree limbs, and tree roots without breaking my neck! He has a Fox RLC fork(130 mm) and same shock, and it seems to work great(again note...I didn't break my neck! ). Anyways, just saying Hi all, have a great day! Tmax

Welcome to Bike Forums.

You will get a lot more action if you post your thread in the MTB forum. This forum is about framebuiding and the like.

Good luck.

Becareful buying/selling bike parts on-line. I learned the hard way. :(
