Ask on the Singletrack forum. You will get a better class of advice and
abuse there on this sort of topic.

Unless you are looking for advice on a tandem, folding bike or obscure
30 year old frame I advise looking at the MBUK and What Mountain Bike
forums.

uk.rec.cycling is really only for weirdos getting hot under the collar
about the following:

cars
dogs
walkers
bells
swans
cycle lanes
law suits
"civilians" on bikes

It's another cheap downhiller. If you want a cheap downhiller, it's OK.
Don't try to ride it up hills, because it would be /very/ hard work. And
there are a lot of bushes in the rocker arm mechanism, which means
maintenance is going to be expensive.

But are you certain you want a downhiller? There are very few places in
Britain where you can ride one.

A mate has one. They're alright but the forks are a bit mank and top out all
the time. TBH you'd be much better off finding out about bikes and bike bits
in general than posting a spec here every time you look at a bike.

Is it any good for what? You still haven't told us (AFAIK) what you
want to do with the bike. DH bikes are only any good for, er, going
downhill. Is that all you want to use it for? Bearing in mind you
don't give the impression of being that knowledgeable about bikes,
perhaps you can help us to help you by telling us what you really want
the bike for.

A downhill bike at this sort of price is bound to have some problems; if
this is the budget the guy has got, he needs to decide which set of
problems he's prepared to put up with.

A couple of kids in the village have got themselves second-hand Specialized
Demo 8s this year, and are having a lot of fun on them, mostly on the Ae
downhill course. The bikes seem well made and solid, and if they're giving
any trouble they haven't come to me to fix them (which one at least of
them usually does when he's got bike trouble).

Yep. It's the old cheap light strong thing again.
