This is for sale on FB...
Was looking for something I could ride on roads and canals aswell as trails

Would this climb well and be suitable for long mountain rides ??

    Should have Rockshox Pike forks.
    Might be worth asking the seller why they have been changed.

    I will do...

    As for the bike being used as a XC bike for long rides...

    Any opinions ?

    They were changed due to damage... Manitous forks are on there now... Are they any good ?

    You might want to keep all your buying stuff in one thread. Opening a new one for each bike you look at is confusing.

    It's also impossible to give a sensible opinion based on a bad blurry picture with no details or specs.

    For what you want it won't be good. It's heavy, doesn't climb particularly well and doesn't ride well until you give it a real good beating.
    A cheap hardtail would be better.

    Sounds to me like you're looking for a 100-120 mm hardtail with all-rounder tires (Ikon, Ardent and similar).
    If you're looking for cheap options, also consider the long-term implications. A hardtail is cheaper and easier to maintain.
