is that dollars and is the bike brand new. is a good spec all xt stuff which is good hayes brakes are good but i always prefered avid and hope but that just my opinion. depends if the bike is new as 3600 could build you a very good bike to your spec but depends if you want one ready done

For $3600 I'd ask for straight XTR instead of XT, and some lighter components... what's the spec weight?

If you have to ask the worth i would venture to say that would be just a wee bit to much bike for you.

3500!!!! id rather buy like, car mods with that money. or computer mods... just too risky for a bike, like what if the worst happens to your bike. but then again...maybe ur not like that.
