this guy i used to work with should be buying it but yeah im not entirely sure. he said he wants it but hes in the czech republic right now so its kinda hard to work out but yeah he said he wants it and that his buddy over here has the money to pay me for it sometime soon so yeah we'll see. im still mainly riding the STP ofcourse though, not a whole lot of dirt to ride round here anyways. i will be getting a new DH bike though defnilty, i just havent decided what though. im tossin around a few ideas and tryin to find out what kinda of deals on everything i can get so yeah we'll see. it pretty much comes down to how much money i can scroundge up and how much money i wanna try to keep my self from spending...this summer is gunna be a really expensive one even without bikes haha.
