    I am looking for a new DH race bike but unlike a lot of Jr racers my parents don't help me out when i comes to Parts, Entry fees, riding gear, ect.. And this year i need a new race bike. If any of you knew what i was riding before you would know what i'm talking about. I'm looking for something the will be like $900 total for a complete. I was looking through the classified and i found some bikes but if any of you are selling a bike or know someone who is selling a bike if you could post them here or send me a PM that would be great.
    Thanks

    look on ebay for an 2004 iron horse sgs downhill rigs very cheap and very good for the money. Im still rockin mine new paint and some upgrades and thats all it really needed, the 04 were the last year and are beefed with better geo. Make sure its the Dh not the freeride.

    I will sell you a semi complete 2006 Foes Mono with 05 Curnutt Fork for $1100.

    It has a few dents but mechanically sound. You can even drive to Albany and check it out.
