I checked out the bike and it looks pretty good. There were a few scratches on it, but the frame despite being a little dirty looked like it was in good condition. The shiver had new crowns put on and a new headset was put in during the process. The front tire is worn down but he will give me a new one. The seat post got messed up during the shipping process from when he bought it but he will give me a new one, and a another seat if I want it. He also said he would give me a norshore chain guide. The only thing component wise I dont like are the rims which are rhynolites which I know some of you love and hate.
I asked him how much he has ridden it and he said barely any over the last 4 months. He told me he purchased it up in canadian from a guy who worked in a shop and raced xc. So most likely he didnt abuse the bike that much since xc (apparently) was his focus. So taking into consideration that the guy I might buy it from is telling the truth and hasnt abused it much, I would really only be the 2nd owner if you look at it that way.
I worked him down to $900 so im kinda tempted. What do yall think.
