    Stoked!
    If you don't mind me asking, what's the cost and weight on that bike? I really like it and I'm looking to upgrade from my Trek 6700 hardtail to Full susp. Did you order it online or go to a local dealer?

    Outta my price range. Some new 2008 Element 70's on Ebay for $2300 - 2500. I'll see if I can find one of the other Elements like the 10 or 30. A little closer to my price range...

    Fortunately I'm not paying that... more of a one time deal through a 'friend'.

    And it should ship in the next couple days! w00t!

    I haven't been on a bike since I was a kid, but decided to get into it as a summer activity. Got it off craigslist for a couple hundred or so, the guy said it was a downhill race bike but that he never got to ride it at the ski resorts so he had to sell it. It's nearly new....so I bought it...



    I've also got my cases of mt. dew, so I'm ready to hit some sweet jumps and tear up the local trails.....probably Killington too this summer.

    I can ride in my jeans and ski helmet, right?

    Anybody up for a bike-off???

    if you actually paid a couple of hundred bucks for that bike you got hosed!

    Brand new that thing didn't cost that much.

    No way man, it's a downhill race bike. I've taken it off some curbs and it just soaks them up....the suspension is very springy.

    With any luck his wheel will pop off riding down Killington and he'll smash his face on a rock. It would be an improvement...
