    Pull the trigger? 2011 Giant XTC 29er, re-spec'd...

    Hey y'all,

    This one came up on CL, got him down to $1500... what do you think?

    http://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/bik/2817786493.html

    2011 GIANT XTC 29er, Alum frame, size M, Fox fork, 10sp SRAM X-7 shifter and derailleurs, Magura Marta SL, Raceface NEXT carbon bars & cranks, 24.03lbs as built (no pedals)

    I talked to the guy about the build... he's built it up a couple of times and it looks like the only thing that is stock are the wheels and the fork.

    I'm trying to figure out whether this is going to be a good purchase at $1500, or whether I should hold off.

    One thing he mentioned is that the crankset is a triple, but the front derailleur is for a double... no big deal?

    The guy races, has sponsors and all of that and seems like he knows what he's talking about. It's a pretty long drive down to Santa Rosa... any advice would be VERY appreciated.

    HELP!

    Thanks,
    DS

    I can't help with the specs and all that. But those Giant XTC's are sweeter than tupelo honey!
    Every word is like an unnecessary stain on silence and nothingness.
