Im new to down hill and I just picked up a giant warp ds1 for $90 here are the specs 18" frame, rox Judy Xc shocks, hv rear shock, shimano deore hard wear, but no wheels, not to sound dumb but what will I need to get this bike put together and out on the trail? (I'm thinking 26" wheels/tires with rotors for disc breaks, a caliper for the rear and a cassette?) this will be my first build so any guidance or helpful advice is greatly appreciated, I'm planing on doing some downhill/trail riding with it and I know the shocks are not the greatest but I'm trying to keep this under $500.

-thanks Devin.

get some really cheap wheels used.. and some mechanical discs. Don't bother putting much money into it. I'm guessing the bike circa... 2000 if you have Judy XC? Parts have come a long ways since then, you will be limited to what you can ride "dh" wise... or at least limited to the speeds you can hit and how much confidence the bike will inspire.

Honestly sometimes "cheap" is more expensive.
