      Looking for a used mountain bike for a friend.  I found an Iron Horse Sinister, is this a good bike?

      At that price range you are better off avoiding full suspension.  The linkages, rear suspension shock and frame assembly all add cost.  The only way to provide a full suspension bike at that price point is to sacrifice the specifications of the components & materials that comprise the bike.  These specifications make a big difference.  Additionally, the linkage bearings will not be serviceable on a low cost bike,  so when they wear out the bike is done.

      Stick to a hard tail,  the money saved in the complexity/components of rear suspension is applied to better wheels, tires, drivetrain and front shock.  Also the hard tail will be more durable than the lower priced full suspension bike.
