might just be an off year?
I recall seeing a couple of interesting ones show up on kijiji at the end of september but for the most part not much new on there now.

Dropped mine off on Monday to the new owner. Posted it here and had 0 interest. Maybe if I gave it away for even more than I already gave it away for? Maybe we're talking track bikes as in $2000-$4000 bikes, the cost of good suspension? Lol

not everyone can justify $10k + for a track bike, doesnt mean its a bad deal, just means there is a narrower market for it.

I've spent my first season on a bike that cost $2k, I realize that it probably wont cover the bill for a set of decent forks, but it was plenty good for me to start on, now i've crashed it and it doesnt make financial sense to fix, so its new-to-me bike time in the $4000-$5000 range; that was your suspension budget last year?? color me impressed

Comparing a pro superbike rider's suspension budget vs a new track rider's second track bike purchase is a fantastic example of apples and oranges. Kellen, you're an enigma. haha

Well I sold mine pretty easily for what it is.

The market definitely shrinks when you pass the $5-$8k mark. You're doing it right but starting with cheaper bikes. My season suspension budget is far less then $4-$5k, just a refresh. My comment was the initial cost of buying the parts (shock/cartridge). I'm doing another build this year so my budget for parts skyrockets compared to a regular season.

I won am 600 on a $3k bike lol
You did and congratulations! Now...you gonna come rave with the big boys? :)

I am, but I figure I'll need a bike that's worth $5k to compete haha
Lol, you can compete on a $2k bike still. Mosport might not be a lot of fun, make sure that paint has good adhesion so it doesn't get sucked off. I needed another 10hp this year.
