    How does it ride?
    How much does it weigh?
    What is the regular price?
    Was it used?
    How convenient is it to store when folded up?

    BTW, here's a pic.
    They see pretty neat.

    Sounds like you received a good deal. I know how expensive this can be. I had for some time wanted a bike built by the SantaCruz bike Company in Santa Cruz, CA. The problem is that these are incredibly expensive. I had been saving for it and am now a little hesitant in that I weigh between 180-190 pounds and I have heard of some problems with frames cracking. They may be OK with a 125-140 pound rider, but, the heavier the rider the more punishment the frame and suspension components take. Hey I liked the designs in that the stuff looked great AND the suspension travel was great for a bigger dude.

    What else is good?
