    You have, in fact, found a website with cheap affordable bikes. See that tab at the top of this page that says "Classifieds"? Click that, then click "Full Suspension" and browse or search. I've seen plenty of good deals in there.

    Pinkbike.com's classifieds get a TON of traffic, but a lot of those are from Canada and I think people have had some sketchy experiences with sellers from there.

    Another place to check is the classifieds on mtbr.com, but there don't seem to be as many DH bikes posted there.

    If you're feeling brave, you can check out ebay, but I would stick to local buyers who'll let you take a look at the bike before you buy. That's a good rule of thumb for any used bike, actually. I bought my DH bike used on ebay and got an amazing deal.

    How much are you looking to be spending? There is a huge range depending on your price point.
