Hey guys I've been in the Motocross industry my whole life and had to give it up so my out let is MTB but my hard tail is not quite capable of doing what i want and i now realize i need a dh bike. Right now i ride a Specialized Rockhopper comp 29er and love it but need more. I am 19 5' 8" and 130lbs I ride pretty aggressively would like to be able to do some drops an send some jumps. Im looking at used bikes because my budget is pretty low. ($1300) I was wondering if anybody new what bikes would be reasonable priced but still get the Job done?

Thanks.

for 1300, i don't think you'll find anything new. on our latest deals page, there's a GT Fury DH bike for $2300 at jenson, that's probably the best you'll do in the new category. Used is prob the way to go.

here's our deals page - http://www.vitalmtb.com/features/MTB-Deals-9-20,575

airborne used to make the Taka for like $1400, but i didn't see it on their site anymore. here's a link to it in our product guide http://www.vitalmtb.com/product/guide/Bikes,3/Airborne/Taka,2985#product-specs
