So I thought I'd check out downhill a bit ... I've decided to pick up a second hand full sus and gradually build on it but I really know nothing about DH other than what I've seen in videos. I've ridden some singletrack on hardtails with small jumps and technical sections, but as far as proper downhill goes I have no experience at all. Any tips or useful beginners information would be great!
Thanks :D

Do you have a specific bike picked out that you want or is that what you're look for advice on?

Hey Josh, here's a good primer about the bikes used for DH: http://www.vitalmtb.com/product/category/Bikes,3/riding_type/downhill?guide=1

You might also consider a "park" or freeride bike since you're just getting into it: http://www.vitalmtb.com/product/category/Bikes,3/riding_type/freeride?guide=1

Yes yes. I fully support the "park" option. It's how I got hooked!
