Looking to sell my 2012 ABD Flow Hard tail, and get a cheap used bike for DH/General MTB riding.

These are on my shortlist, I'm not sure which is the best, most current geometry, But the geometry doesn't really matter too much i guess.

Giant GLory DH1 17" (Medium?) Unsure of year.

I can't really comment on the bikes as they're very dependent on preference and what you value.

As for the geometry, don't underestimate it. After riding a Norco Shore for a few years and then switching to a Transition Patrol the difference is night and day and I'll say I'll probably never ride anything but Transition frames due to their geometry. It seriously changes your ride and the overall performance of the bike. It's worth looking into a bit, but again, it's very preference based so I can't say much.

I wish you luck and hope you get something sweet.

I vote Blur LT for all-round riding or that DEMO 7 if you want something more park friendly. Strangly, those old Demos climb really well.

I have this bike also available to me, He's only asking $250 for i as it needs some work.

I'm not sure of the year, Maybe 2008 Big hit FSR 1?
