New to downhill any suggestions on bike choice??
Im from sydney and just started downhill riding and am after a bike for around the $1500 to $2000 but there are so many choices.
So im putting it out there for your suggestions on bike choice??
is there no one out there with a comment
Hey mate, it's always good to see more people getting into the sport!
Do you know what size you need, cause I've got a 2010 Kona stab for sale which I used to get into downhill riding for $1400 if you're a medium frame size.

One of the older glorys are a good bike to start on because they have all good components on the and there are lots of them that are being sold reasonably cheap at the moment
plenty of choices out there in the 2nd hand market in that price range. I vote for a early glory
I would say a glory. There a well priced bike with a good spec list, plenty of second hand ones, easy to get parts for, can take a hit while your still learning and try get a 2010 or newer. Make sure you shop around dont want to get ripped off!
Yeah I think that's the way I'm going toward a glory around the 2010 model I tryed my mates 2011 and found it a lot more responsive compared to the 2008 model and I know the 2010 is the same frame and I could always spec it up anyways.

Another thing guys how hard is it to get trading on this site I have tried to get access about 3 times now?
And all I want to do is buy a bike.
glorys are great for the price. as for trading access it usually takes a while for them to respond, but it pretty easy to get
Everything said in this was spot on.

trading access is only needed to post and comment in the for sale thread. while waiting for trading access. just Private message the person involved about the bike.
