Hate to say it, thats not to shabby. I know those frames, to a small degree, a most people are happy with them. They aren't good for aggressive riding but still

The fork sucks though. I would buy this and if you are really enjoying it, consider changing out the fork at a later date.

Thats a good price. Like mael said, over time you could change the fork and the rear shock to a good stable platform air shock and have a nice riding bike.
