You Win Some – You Lose Some

In our experience, we have found some really good deals as well as the occasional self-induced money pit. Our first kid’s downhill bike was a Kona Stinky 2-4. We bought it used for only $250; owned it for 4 years and sold it for $300. On the other side of the coin, dad’s last bike cost $2,300 and there were close to $1,500 in upgrades and maintenance. It sold for $1,800.
