Welcome blueman.

This is the Introductions forum. Not loads of traffic here.
Ask the folks in the Mountain Biking forum about the bike. It's located farther down the BikeForums main page.
The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. - Psalm 103:8

It sounds like a good deal, but I would be very careful about checking it carefully for cracks. If it's been used the way the FSR XC should be used, it's been put through it's paces a lot.
