Can anyone fill me in on a good, cheaper downhill bike? I use to race AMA and NMA motocross so I'm no stranger to working a bike and I just moved to Beaver, PA and heard Pennsylvania was a good mountain bike state... Any help would be awesome! I'm 130 pounds, 5'10 and my price range is anywhere up to about $1750

Get something used, like a Specialized Demo, Giant Glory or Intense M9 then you can upgrade as needed. $1750 won't get you anything new that is worth while.
