    im thinking about getting one i need a mild freeride bike and 5.5 inches of travel seems like itll be enough for me and what i have to ride. is it worth the money? i already have mag30 wheels ill end up putting on it and will change the fork as soon as i get money for it. what else should i change im 5'11 205 pounds and ill be freeriding and the occasional xc ride. if not, then any other suggenstions for the same price or close to would like it to have at least 6 or so inches of travel. im only 16 and will be getting a job soon and selling my snowboard and a bunch of other stuff to save for the bike.

    thanks in advance

    I'd agree that used is probably the best option. The Spec frame is solid, but pretty much all the components are cut-rate. If you get it, plan on a new rear shock soon and definately a higher spring rate.
