Am I crazy?

..or is this just an awsome deal?

Long Link

I'm thinking I might get one of these. If I like it I'll keep it, if not throw everything that fits on my Kona and sell the rest. As far as I can see, there's my disks, wheels, tires, seat, fork...

Thoughts?

well its not your new fork, that ones a 1" steerer tube. and by shimmano, i think it means that everything is below the level of tourney, so i personally dont think its a good deal, you can get a new bike at wal-mart for $160 (thats $45 in shipping). just saying, anyway, they dont give you a specs list, so you have no clue what components are on it.

    ya, it doesnt tell you what shimano stuff, ive never heard of that brake company, and the quality of bike means they suck, and KMC is a standard cheap chain company. dont buy it, save your money

    My GF has two Kona Hahanna's, and they're spec'd WAY better than this piece of crap! There is nothing of any value on the 'Everest'.

    You CAN polish a turd.....but then you just have a shiny turd.

    I think....that the tires may be worth...$5 each...tubes..another $5. Anything else is junk.. OH wait...the kickstand...might bring $3-4 on ebay.
