This bike is used with approximately 200 miles on it.

It is mechanically PERFECT with no crashes or abuse.

I upgraded it to grip shift, Intense tires and tubes.

The hydraulic disc brakes are excellent and better than the brakes on my friends new cross country bikes. I have not compared them to a new dh bike.

No repairs needed. Just ride and enjoy this machine.

I am selling because the wheel base is a little short for me and I need a larger frame. I am open to trades for a bike with large or XL frame size. I need to measure for sure to determine if this is a medium or large, but I think it is medium. I'm 5-11 and think it's a little small for my height.

I look at this bike like a 2001 year model John Deer tractor. It is mechanically perfect and very reliable. It can and will do any and everything the brand new tractor will do. You can spend a fortune on a new bike and that's cool, or you can spend $2100.00 on this quality machine and save a ton. With the money you save, you can buy a dropper post for it if you want, because that is the only option this bike doesn't have compared to a new bike. And the price is right for someone who wants a bike for their kid.

I love this bike it peddles great up hills and feels very plush and balanced.

I see a lot of older bikes online for sale but they all have a "story". You know, cracks in the frame or general abuse or neglect. This is a no apologies machine and I see it lasting someone the next 20 years if they take care of it.
