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.

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.
