Ebay purchase - are the specs good ?

Postby NewbieCycle » Sat Aug 25, 2007 10:04 pm

Folks,
Just took a look at an ebay advertisement for a bike. I know everyone says that you can't get a good bike off ebay - but hey it's worth a shot. The specs are:

FRAME SANTOSA 18" ALLOY FRAME H/T CARBON AL-7005
FORK SRAM 07 ROCKSHOX DART 1 CL80 BLACK DSC
BRAKE SRAM 07 AVID DB JUICY 3, F/R,160 IS,
BRAKELEVER SRAM 07 AVID DB JUICY 3, R/L
C./WHEEL SRAM 07 TRUVATIV FC FIVE D 3.0 PS 175 PTBLK 42/32/22T
CHAIN SHIMANO CN-HG53 108L
F./HUB FORMULA DC-20 ALLOY M9x14Gx24Hx100/108mm,W/QR22 ALLOY BK QR.
R./HUB FORMULA DC-22 ALLOY M10x14Gx24Hx135/146mm,W/QR22 ALLOY BK QR 9-SP.
RIM SUN RINGLE CR-18 26"*14G*24H ALLOY DOUBLE WALL 19mmH A/V.W/SINGLE EYE
TIRE WTB WTB VELOCIRAPTOR 26"x2.1 A/V
F/DERAILLEUR SHIMANO FD:M410L6 31.8mm TOP PULL
R/DERAILLEUR SRAM X-7 W/O BRACKET FOR 9SP.

PEDAL WELLGO LU-998 ALLOY BK CAGE & SILVER BODY,AXLE:9/16 BORON,REFL:BS.
SADDLE SAN MARCO ISCHIA K A022 M 001

Any comments ? I believe the frame is from a company in Taiwan.

Regards.

Forks are low-end - this is where they skimped. Other stuff is also low end(but not as low as the forks).

Price?
Think outside the double triangle.

SRAM X.7 shifters are good. RD is good, FD is not. Hubs I don't know about, but it looks like they might have skimped on wheels too.

eBay item - price guide ...

Postby NewbieCycle » Sun Aug 26, 2007 10:43 am

Checking the feedbacks - the price guide is around $450 - $600 for the 18in frame, with the gear as mentioned above. Is this reasonable or too expensive.

Thanks.
