    Too much?

    The ATX 890 series are race inspired bikes, built with premium components and our 3lb super-light aluminum frame. At Giant we custom draw,shape, and butt all our aluminum tubes, and each frame we produce is hand welded.The result? Some of the most advanced aluminum frames on the market.
    colour Race Yellow/Black
    frame ALUXX SL super-light butted aluminum
    fork Rockshox SID XC - 80mm travel
    derailleur Front: Shimano Deore 34.9
    Rear: Shimano XT 9 spd.
    derailleurshifters Shimano Deore 9 spd.
    bottombracket Shimano UN72 68 x 113
    chain KMC Z9200
    pedals Time ATAC Alium clipless
    handlebar Titec Enduro XC 6061 butted
    stem Race Face Prodigy 8 degree
    headset Cane Creek ZS2 threadless 1 1/8"
    grips Giant Santoprene
    brakes Hayes Hydraulic Disc
    saddle WTB Koski Contour
    seatpost Race Face Prodigy 27.2 x 350 Black
    rims Mavic Crossroc 24h tubeless black
    hubs Formula SL sealed bear. Blk.anod.24h.
    tyres Hutchinson Python 26 x 1.95
    crankset Raceface Prodigy 22/32/44 175mm
    cassette Shimano XT 11-32 9 spd.

    I got this straight from the Giant website. My friend is looking at this bike to buy. It is used but in very good condition. Looks like it was only ridden a few times. Tires have most of the tread. Is $1200 CAN ($800 US) too much to pay for a bike that is two years old? The owner of the shop knows the previous owner of the bike and reasures us that he bike was meticulously taken care of and maintained buy his shop mechanic.

    Considering that the components alone are (if new) worth that much.... I'd say sure go for it

    I think that's a pretty good deal, and a nice parts spec.
    My money pits:

    Cannondale Jekyll 500 with Avid Mechs and Sun DS2 rims with XT disc hubs.

    Cannondale F900 with SRAM XO shifters/derailler, Mavic X3.1 tubeless wheels, Avid Mechs, Race Face Next LP cranks, Time ATAC pedals, SRAM levers.

    Hey BikeTYke. I am sorry that I don't have any info on this bike but could you please post a link for that info you got from Giant's website. I've tried to find it but I couldn't. I think I have the exact frame you are talking about. It is mostly yellow with some black. All I know about this frame is that it is pretty light. I haven't built the bike yet, so that's all I can say

    This bike seems like it was exclusive to Canada in the year 2001.
