Hi all...

Managed to get a mate of mine into MTB - currently he only has a crappy Full sussed that weighs about 50lbs..

Looking for a full bike for him to get started on - specs not too important, more emphasis on a decent frame - HT only...

What ya got? 8)

How about a titanium Dyna-Tech MT3? Brilliant frame, scruffy paint, Manitou boingers, nice simple 1x7 build. Might be just the ticket to get him going & the frame's well worth upgrading if he takes to it :) mmm... ti 8)
