Got tired of my new MTB so I traded for this...

4/7/2014 5:24 PM

Some of you know that i'm a washed up ex-pro motocross racer, for those who didn't know...well now you do. Anyway, I had that Giant Reign 1 MTB that I just got not too long ago and found a local guy who wanted it more than me so he offered up this for trade:



and this is what I had:




Heh...now to buy another MTB.

Any idea what this is worth? I never found the exact year on it but its what I think is 07-09 Specialized hard rock sport. I've had it on craigslist for different prices forever.

It was only like 429.99$ new or something. I traded 50$ in bmx parts for it and I hate riding all the way to the local trailsy downhill stuff. No idea what the resale value for one is.

That's a 2003 or 2004, worth about $150 - $200 to the right person.

I've done more DH MTB riding then anyone I know, I've been racing for years and although the Giant was pretty beefy, it couldn't hold up to what I normally do on a DH bike.

You only hold redbull rampage, the premier freestyle dh mtb event in the world.

Solid trade, now go get a PSlope from specialized or a Demo. haha

But seriously the P Slope is AWESOME. It's a dirt jumper with a rear shock and something like 80-100 MM travel. Great for the ridiculous slopestyle stuff that dudes like berecloth crank out.

When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same, out there for the fun of it, the challenge of progression, and the personal accountability we have for the results we get. There are no teams to let down, no coaches to scream about a missed pedal, and no obstacles that cannot be overcome.

I love Specialized (their bikes, not the company), I had a Big Hit and a Demo already. My fav bike I've had is probably my old Rocky Mountain Switch I had like 4 years ago. It came wit Marzocchi Bomber forks that were pretty good but I needed to put a heavier spring in them since they were too plush for the tracks I was riding. I think my next bike will be another freeride, they have the benefits of being able to do pretty big drops on the DH courses but you can still pedal them around singletracks.

You guys ever freestyle ?

4/17/2014 5:54 PM

No, I have many friends who ride professional FMX and all but I never liked it. I'll watch it when it's on TV and go to FMX events to watch but i'll never try it.
