Just bought this for Son1 as he's outgrowing his hardtail. Anyone like to provide more details, It has a full XT 8 speed groupset, Rockshox Pilot and some spring rear shock. Since I'm new to these mountain bike things, is it a reasonable bike for a 14yo? Think it is from 1999 but am not sure.
He was after a Whyte or an Orange Five, so a single pivot it is :lol:. Was £150 a reasonable price? Suggested upgrades? Fork and hydraulic front brakes? His Kona hardatil has Dart 2's and Shimano disks. It is however lighter than the Kona.
Oh and he hates the frame as it's "not modern". Is he being reasonable? Has suspension geometry changed that much?
