Just picked up this bike for trail riding, got it on sale for $550 before taxes ($598.00)

is that a good deal for this model ? not sure why they are so anxious to get rid of it besides it might be last season.

questions:

- the fork, what limits can i push this fork to without damaging it?

- whats the benefit of having 2 gears at front vs the stand 3 ?

- what kind of maintenance would i need to do after trail riding ?

A very decent deal. My '05 cost me $750 when I bought it new.

- the fork will take about a 4ft drop

- looks like the 06 model has a bashguard. not sure why - DH bikes typically have bashguards. they keep rocks and whatnot from damaging the outermost chainring. curious though - the 05s, 07s and the new 08s all have 3 chainrings.

- wash it down to get dirt/mud off. lube it up every once in a while.
