I am more and more considering purchasing something new or something slightly used. If buying new, I like the look and parts of the ghost dh 7000.. though I dont know if I wish to invest that much in a bike
I'm really on "the bench". And today I found a nice Kona Stab Supreme DH 2008. It was quite affordable and had been sitting in a shed for the last two seasons... But the seller said a guy said he would buy it unseen
If not, I might buy it.. Looks kindof sweet. he wants about 50% off the price on CRC http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Mode ... elID=78920
. I guess itæs sold though, so I am also considering other bikes 2008-2012, slightly used or new.
Maybe it's better to just buy a new bike, as I then dont have to upgrade and do services at once
also you get the "new smell" and you have a bike for many years.. I have had the bazooka since early 2000 and I paid 19.000 NOK for it. (thats about 2000gbp). it was way more expensive at that time though, I believe it was 6000gbp.. (in NOK). But I bought it when it had been used half a season.
btw look at this pimp ride
