As far as whether or not it's worth it, only you can really answer that. Suffice to say that everyone I know who has one has not regretted the purchase. I think you'd be getting a better package than a P.3 for less; but if the price really scares you off you might look at the Giant STP.

^^S'okay. That's what Bike Forums are for - -to learn something new. A couple years ago, I didn't even know Transition existed (right in my back yard). Now I'm riding one.

I built mine up... Their "from the factory" specs aren't bad, but I wanted to personalize mine. That said, I love the bike

Would anybody snap up one of these on Ebay if it sold today with stock components for $1399?

No. I sold my Yeti DJ for much less than that last year.

Maybe 7 or 8 if it's really sano and not abused. Possibly a bit north of that if it was a highly-spec'd custom build.

agreed, it's different buying new at MSRP than reselling/buying used. Same as anything. I'd say $800 is reasonable for a used one in good shape.

I used to have a ToP - great bike. Got stolen unfortunately and I ended up building a NS suburban dirt
