    I got my nephew into mtbing last year and now his brother wants to join in on the fun. We're looking to get him a used bike w the description in the title for Christmas. Our budget isn't huge. Help me out if you can.

    Howdy stranger. I have an external dropper you can have if the the bike does not come with one. Size matters.

    Hmmmm, I know a guy who rides an XL and it has a dropper. But I don't think he's ready to sell yet. :whistling:

    I'll keep my ear to the ground, and eyes in the sky for a suitable ride for your nephew. Seriously though, would a 26er be OK for him?

    My friend has a XL pivot 429 he's selling, And it has a dropper .
    We talked about it just last Sunday and how he needs to sell it.
    Super nice bike, high end components, oh and did I say it has a dropper post?
    I'll ping him on it. To bad he doesn't do forums.

    He bought the bike from the Path and La Habra Cyclery installed the dropper and the brakes.

    Honestly, I'm not that loyal when it comes to bikes. If it's a good bike, the geometry fits your body and style of riding, I'm all for getting the best bike for each individual. I shredded a Intense Tracer a couple years back but could not afford the $7000 price tag. My Trance was the next best thing at....well, I'm not allowed to say cuz I was treated well w my purchase. :inlove:

    Plus, my nephew bought a YT Jeffsy. :)

    Thanks to all who helped trying to land a good deal for my new riding nephew - his brother bought wc_surveyor son's 2016 Giant Trance 3 w upgrades. He'll be receiving it as an early Christmas present this weekend. Hopefully I get to ride w them both when he gets it, weather and trail conditions permitting. :D
