    Is it a good deal? Yes, at the current price it is. It could go a little higher and still be a good deal as well. The real question is whether it's a good fit for you and your riding style. Will the bike's size work for you? Do you race? What kind of terrain do you normally ride? As long as you know this bike will fit your body size and riding style, there's definitely some room for the price to go up. I think if it went much over $1,500, I'd start looking elsewhere. That's what MY threshold would be. Budgets vary, though. Again, it depends on whether it's a good fit for you. If it's exactly what you're looking for in a bike, sure, you can max out your budget if you want, but if you're buying it based solely on the price alone, that may not be the best idea. Good luck.

    What bike is it, just curious. A lot of us can't view ebay from our "current" locations.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    It's a Felt RXC aluminum frame with carbon seat stay's Here's a list of components and the listing.

    This is a Top-Of-The-Line race hardtail that I put a lot of time and consideration into building to be a very light as well as very dependable bike. I am selling it because I mainly ride on the road and just don't race enough to warrant having such a fast bike. This thing is spec'd equal to or better than Felt's team issue race bike that retails for $5,000. This thing climbs like a mountain goat, takes corners like it is on rails, this thing is just flat out fast. I bought the bike last year as a complete bike and slowly upgraded all the parts, most of the parts are only a few months old. Less than 500 miles on the frame and all of the components have even less. There are normal cable rub marks and a few paint nicks all from normal use (cosmetic only) , no wrecks...again...hardly ridden. The complete spec's are as follows:


    17.5" (Medium) Aluminum Frame with Carbon Fiber Seat Stays
    Fork: Sid Team with remote lockout
    Wheels: Cross Max SL Ceramic (silver version)
    Shifters: SRAM X.0 triggers
    Brake Levers: Avid SD Ti
    Brakes: Avid SD Ultimate
    Handlebar: Easton EC70 Carbon
    RD: Sram X.0
    FD: SRAM X-Generation
    Crankset: Race Face Deus with external BB
    Seatpost: Orbea Carbon Fiber
    Saddle: Selle Italia SLR or Fizik Gobi
    Tires: Maxxis Laresn TT tubeless

    Total weight is about 21-22 pounds.

    Very nice build. If it's in good condition and it fits I wouldn't have any problem spending $1,500 or so on it. However it shouldn't be that hard to get an accurate weight for it.

    I had a felt S-25 Triathlon bike, very serviceable bike for an entry level tri bike. Wouldn't hesitate to try another one of their products!

    How would we know? I'm gonna guess the bike will sell for 1800 to 2000.00 USD. Any other guesses?
