Sounds nice. I assume it's a hardtail? No pics? Not even in the ad? What model fork? What model bike? What year? Hard to evaluate with minimum info.

XT stuff sounds good, that's about it. There are good and bad Marz forks...

I'm telling you there's not enough info to have any idea what it's worth.

Shucks, the old 6" Jr.T is worth half that or more by itself (provided it works right).

Do you grunt and groan a lot when you ride? If not, it might not be the bike for you.

Seriously -- if the frame isn't cracked and the fork and other parts actually work, $200 seems like a fair deal.

I don't have the company history of Azonic on the tip of my tongue, but they're no worse than any other made in Taiwan small brand.

Azonic is a long-time moto-gear company that branched out into bikes quite a while ago. Most of their frames are decent, if somewhat overbuilt sometimes, by reputable Taiwan 'catalog' frame makers like Hi-Bike, Da-Bomb and SuperTech, IIRC.

Looks like a cool little bike, assuming it's in decent condition. No way is that a 16" though.

I don't know if that's a good deal. Are you an "EGRESIVE" rider? If not, I'd stay away.

No, I think it's smaller, somewhere between 13"-15". It's probably a FRHT. Overbuilt heavy thing meant for an "egresive" rider to throw around. That's my guess anyway, I can't tell what the frame is, so I could be wrong.

But you expect we'll be able to make this decision for you? Sack up and make the damn drive if you want the bike.
