Hey guys new here and I got the bug for mountain biking, just completely thrashed my wal mart special mongoose:thumbsup: , so now that i know i'm into the sport i want to step up to something a little better:D ..I dont have allot of money to spend but i found a good deal on a 2007 Iron Horse Azure Sport, just went to check it out today and the guys son literally rode it twice and hung it up..not one scratch on it, looks really clean. I took it for a test ride and everything was working properly..

I'm looking to primarily ride XC but would also like to hit some smaller jumps and some rougher terrain from now and then(little all mountain and downhill). Will this bike be ok for me? will i end up wanting to buy another bike in a year or so? Is this bike worth upgrading? sorry for all the newb questions..TIA!!

here is some pics

Uhhh... don't jump the bike. It was made for sprinting, climbing, and going fast on trail. The next model up, the MarkIII, was made to soak-up more trail with an inch-and-a-half more travel. It was no jumper also.

The good thing is I seem to be the only one to post about a crack in this area, I'd see if you could knock him down another hundred or so, it is a 4yr old bike. The last frame crack I had welded 11/2 yrs ago and is still trouble free, if you can get it for under 400.00 and it's the correct size I'd buy it, looks very clean.

Good Luck
