'08 Scott Gambler FR 10
Ultimate Downhill/Freeride, fully adjustable for either.
Marz. 888 Fork, Fox DHX 5.0 coil rear.(Both new upgrades)
7.8" Travel front, 7.2"-9.5" Rear(3 choices)
Mavic, Scott, Sram, e13, Avid, etc.

Would this be a decent downhill bike? Does $1500 seem like a good deal? Thanks

I also have one up for sale right now. The only difference is the one I have has a 40 rc2 saint brakes and a Mavic tubeless wheelset. Asking $2000 so $1500 for that one seems like a good deal.

That depends on how much an RC2/3 cart costs...

Factor that in, so add 2-300. It's functional without, just with garbage SSV type damping, hardly worthy of such a good platform, and unable to cope properly with the forces needed to get that type of travel out of it. I'd try to split the difference and see if you could knock 100 off it. Rear shock is fine and the minimum "good" standard and can be tuned.
