Need Some Feeback on Breezer Before Purchase Please!

Have the opportunity to purchase a 2012 Breezer Lightning Team Edition steel frame 26" mtb. X7 FD, X9 RD and grip shifters 3x9. Mavic XT Tubeless wheels as well. Low miles. Any feedback or thoughts on this frame/group set? Road cyclist/trail runner but New to mountain biking so this would be my first legit bike. Thanks!

It's a hardtail 26" bike that originally came with a Rockshox Reba RL fork, which is a much better fork than most hardtails come with, but not high-end.

Is it the right size for you? If so, it's probably about price. But you didn't mention the price, so I can't offer an opinion on the value...

$600 shipped to me from TX. After market wheels as well. Would probably swap the grip shifts but that won't cost much. Thoughts?

You're certainly taking a risk since you can't see & ride the bike before buying it.

I also think the price is a little high especially if you're going to remove the gripshifters. I use SRAM 2x10 twisters and love 'em, so you might try it before you go buy triggers.

What would you consider a good price?

I didn't realize you said shipped. $600 isn't bad, assuming everything is mechanically sound and ready to ride.
