MSRP $829

It's a decent beginner's MTB. What is the "blue light special" price that you're considering? $400-$500 would be fair depending on whether it's a "new" 2006-2007-2008.

Its brand new 2007, never used with Rock Shox lock out instaed of stick (RSL i Think) Im about to pay €430 for it.

The colour looks good, but im afraid the BB is lower than the axcels which might cause some log problems.
