    If it is a newer Supermoto and complete for $1500 - that is a killer deal!

    Got it for $1200 a 2007 model. It has a RockShox 318, Avid Hydro 5's. It has Bontrager Rhythm wheels. I am not sure if they are any good

    Even if you don't like a few of the parts that's a really good deal. A guy I work with owns one and loves it. That being said he doesn't take it near lift service mountains, wouldn't be my first choice for DH either. But if that's what you got then hell, "wrung what you brung!"

    The bike has almost 7in of travel and at least 6 in up front. I agree it is not a DH bike but I am thinking that I could still use it at a lift served area and be "selective" about the trails that I use it on. i currently ride a Balfa bb7 and didn't want the overlap. The bb7 is not a good freeride bike, I hope the supermoto is a decent freeride bike (note: I am not aggressive and do not expect to be doing big drops but i want to learn.)

    That's a great combo of bikes! bb7 to kill it on the mountains and the Supermoto will be an excellent freeride bike!

    Pics!!!

    I literally just bought it and it is being shipped so I will get it next week. Pics coming soon. I will need to get a good chain guard. It has 2 rings, any suggestions for a good chain retention device.

    I have a SuMo. It will do more than I am capable of doing. I have ridden every trail at Whistler bike park and consider it a great Freeride bike. True DH bikes are overkill for a non-racer. There are more burly bikes for sure, but ti sounds like this will exceed everything you could want to do (like me). The only thing I don't like too much about mine is the lack of ISCG-05 tabs, so no hammerschmidt crank. I guess that saves me 6-800 bucks right there.

    Says there are interchangeable links to change what style of bike you have. You could just change the links, rear shock, and a few other parts and your good to go for a more dh setup.

    I rode a yeti asx at diablo last year about 10 times and took it down every trail there (deceit kind of got a little too gnarly for the bike though). I am sure that will be a really fun bike at diablo though. That will probably be a great bike to shred on dominion, alpine, exodous etc...
