I got this bike new in August of 2011 and have absolutely loved it since. I ride both XC and Freeride, but have a separate bike for Freeride, so this has never been ridden beyond 1 foot drop, and moderately technical single-track. Everything works great, and I will even throw in a new XTR chain and one set of XT brake pads. The bike retailed for $4,900 in 2010, and it only has about 15% of it’s effective life lived already. There is nothing “cheap” on this bike, and parted out it would be worth quite a bit more than the $1,700 I am willing to let it go for. I am 6’2” tall and this is perfect for me. It would work great for anyone 5’11-6’4” tall. If I can't sell it locally, I will have to go to eBay. Please keep this a local sale. :grin: Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image
