what kind of riding are you gonna be doing? also, i don't think that's an '05 stab, i think it's older.
according to the guy, it's an '05...i did some research and found one thats an '05 and was only sold to the european market and probably to the canandian market...

i'm looking to get into dh/fr/dj...but all the bikes except the stab are not full suspension frames....soo i would need to look around more i guess in order to get a dual....

It seems like you need to get your priorites in order becuase a DH bike is probably not going to DJ well, and a DJ bike isn't going to DH as well
hahaha i know i know....thing is, there isn't many places to DH around here in my area...theres few jumps around so...i'm pro aiming for a freeride hardtail....the sinister would be sick though...

That Stab was on eBay. Didn't meet the reserve at like 600. I wouldn't pay anymore than 800 for it. It doesn't look like an o5. And those components are way old school too.

All those hardtails are well priced. The Chase, Sinister, Scab, and Stuff all ride pretty well. The Stuff is most at home on the dirt though.

I go with the Sinister
but what if, just hypothetically, if you were a college student working part time at a bike shop and had say 900, what would you get? i mean, lets just say that you suck at hard tails, would you still get it then? also, what if you were into road and was going to save to get a road bike...which would come first for you? (i road and been doing it for years but getting into the dh/fr/dj scene down here in GA is HARD cause nobody cares about it...its full of football macho guys guzzalin beer)...the Chase doesn't seem bad...

If you hypothetically suck at riding a hardtail I'm not sure why most of the list is hardtails. If you're going to be jumping it mostly with some light downhill I'd shoot for a 4x bike or something with about 4 inches of travel.

Yeah, the Stab's an '02, not an '05; I wouldn't pay any more than $750 or so for it if it's cherry. You should decide exactly what you want the bike to do, then pick the bike that's best suited for that. Urban? Maybe the Chase. DH? The Stab. DJ/everything? Sinister. Cheap/Broke? Avent. Riding to the corner to buy beer? The Trek+a rack...
