Someone on CL is selling an 02 Devinci Phantom.

Here is a list of the specs, he has the stock part in brackets to show the changes to the bike...

Fork Brand & Model Manitou Black Comp 80/100 (Factory: Rock Shox Duke C)
Fork Material Aluminum, single triple-clamp crown

Chain Shimano CN-HG73, 1/2 x 3/32" (I'm including a brand new SRAM chain)
Seatpost FSA FR200 micro-adjust, 27.2mm diameter (Factory: Titec 6061)

The person is asking $350 CDN. I think the price is a good one, but my question is, is the bike worth more? Can I sell it at a profit?

Here's a stock picture...

He actually gave it 24 hours. Unfortunately, there are not a wealth of Canadians on here - - who would be much more well-versed in a Canadian brand. I would venture that a goodly number of folks here have never even seen a Devinci in person.

To the OP: You might have better luck on the PinkBike forums. Hate to steer you away, but . . . .

Oops my bad. Sorry.

I was thinking "MAN!! Didn't even give us a chance to search!"

I always search for what I need or want to know, but sometimes I find it easier and more informative to ask people who know, this is why I join forums. I want to know computer things, so I joined a couple of computer forums. I own a Ford Taurus and I want to know some stuff about it, so I joined a Taurus forum.

As the members of this forum are very well informed and experienced with bikes (of all types), I find this is the best forum for the majority of my bicycle questions, so I ask here.

As far as Devinci being a Montreal based company, I know this, but I was wondering about the mix of parts and the fork as well.

Thanks,
Ian

You might be able to get more depending on how used the parts are. I think it would be a crap shoot though. You might be the only person looking at buying it now.

I think you should ask for pictures and find out how long the upgrades have been on the bike and what kind of use they have seen.
