It's a bit of a funny one as the frame itself is pretty old now but things like the King rear hub hold the price up because they're expensive. I personally would pass on it at that price.

Are you from the States? The second hand market over there seems to be a fair bit stronger than over here in the UK, so everything seems comparatively overpriced.

Even so it is fairly dated so might not be the bast value for money.

Not really a mention when it's in massive letters in your sig, which brings me to this which I'm pretty sure has been here since the forum began

5. Advertising Minimum Penalty - 1 Warning Point

  • Advertising your personal site is encouraged, do this in the 'Web Site Updates' forum.
  • Advertising of other forums is NOT accepted, this is considered as very bad 'netiquette'.
  • Advertising of sites which sell products is not accepted. This includes placing links (clickable or not) in signatures, custom member titles and avatars. Trials-Forum relies on banners/paying advertisers to keep running, if you want Trials-Forum to stick around, don't annoy our current advertisers by posting links to their competitors sites.

Repeat Offenders will be warned.

Would you also like to take the club website off my sig too ? As it's advertising ? That it MY personal site ?? Our non profit trials club ? Qualitybike.net is a sponsor not my personal website ... If that the way it is shouldn't all videos including the riders sponsors be deleted too ? Was just helping a fellow rider out to give him a guide on prices

Tartybikes and Trialshop pay a fair bit of money towards the running and upkeep of the forum. The site you linked to would be considered as a competitor to Tartybikes hence the reason for removal.

It's all pretty clear and straightforward in the Guidelines.

I'm here in the states, and like these guys say there's some nice parts but the frame is a bit older geometry.

What you other guys maybe don't know is 1gbp (1 quid?) is about 1.61 us dollars currently (two or three weeks ago actually made a purchase from tartybikes) so his $625usd is about 390gbp.

And the hubs new are almost that...

I think it sounds like a decent deal. And I payed more for my first trials bike.

It's hard to say because the second hand market is different in the states. The price seems a bit high to me. I'd expect to pay about 250gbp.

All the components are great, frame could be upgraded eventually if you wanted. It's a great deal. I'd say go for it!
