I am new to this site so I apologize in advance if I am posting this on the wrong thread. But anyway I am currently talking to a guy selling a 2011 Mongoose pinn'r apprentice with DHX RC2 and fox 40 shocks, the bike is in good condition and he is asking for about $1500. So I have three questions:
1) Will this bike handle downhill trails well and be able to compete in Downhill races? (ill be riding at Mountain Creek Bike Park).
2) Will these parts (not just the frame) last me a few years?
3) Is this a good deal?
Any answer is much appreciated! Thank you.

Make sure to see how much riding time the suspension has had on it and what (if any) rebuilds have been done to it, if you get if off him and then have to put $350 into it on the suspension it would be a hit to your pocketbook. Otherwise its a pretty good deal for what you are getting and it should handle pretty much any DH trials out there even though I haven't ridden one or seen any of them on the trial.
