Doesn't always have to be 500$. Depends on what he wants to do.VTSession said:I'm not really familar with that bike but I know Magnas are department store bikes. And this means it is a mass produced, cheap bike. Not really a good bike to be totally honest.
If you want a quality, trail worthy mountain bike. Go to you local bike shop and plan on spending at least $500 or so. In the mean time, take your Magna and put it on Craigslist and get whatever you can.
