Newbie: Bike needed


Dec 10, 2013
Mobile, Al
So, I am looking for an affordable downhill bike. I have been trail riding for years but feel I can push myself harder. I am looking for a good starter bike for a grand or less. I know that is not alot of money but lets face it, Im 32 years old and might die on my first drop in so nothing to expensive. ha! I am not even opposed to building one of my old bikes to fit the job for the time being. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
