    08 Pista Concept Pricing- Good/Bad Deal?

    Hey guys just need a bit of help at the moment. There is a 08 concept frameset here for $580 that is brand new and in my size. Wondering if that would be a good deal for me to take. Everywhere else im seeing is more expensive. I think bens has a few for around $760 or something. Just wanting to know your opinions on whether i should pull the trigger on this thing or not. Its white with celeste lettering, never been ridden. Thanks for your help

    It's almost $200 less than everything else you've seen, yet you need to ask if it's a good deal? I don't think an answer to that question is what you are really looking for.

    What LoRoK said. It's $200 less than the usual price for a new, great frame. I think the 08 model is the best looking, too.

    Is there a difference aside from the year not being shown?
