I've been in the whole cycling scene for some time now and ride just about everything but want to get into downhill/freeride now. I little about me, I ride mainly fixed gear to commute, bmx, and mountain bike. I'm 6'1" 187lbs. I currently have a 2007 specialized hard rock that I ride a little downhill on but not much. I was thinking about building the specialized up with all pretty decent parts and then change the frame in the very end or should I just buy a built bike already? I've been looking on ebay but what would be some good bikes to look at? I also didn't know what size to look for. On my specialized I ride a large but is a bit small now and on road bikes a ride a 58cm. My inseam is 34 on my pants. Some sizes I wanted to know for was Giant, kona, specialized, and any other common DH bikes


Another question what is the difference between AM, downhill, and freeride and what makes the bikes different for each
