    Good used condition. No crashes. Hangs in the garage over my wife's car and she says it has to go :)

    First $500 takes it. I will respond in order of PMs.

    As you guys predicted/knew. I already want a different bike, I am moving to northern Utah in two weeks and if I don't end up selling the bike here I'll bring up with me and try to sell it up there.

    Should have bought my Yeti when you had the chance. :whistling:

    I’ve been around these parts for quite a while..:and for the most part, the advice that the experienced peeps here give are usually pretty spot on.

    @Erckalf

    I'll take the other side. Get another bike, by all means, but keep the first one! One bike is never enough and that one is still plenty capable. There will come a time when you need a backup. Trust me on that one!

    I have two mountain bikes in the garage right now, and I regret selling the third. I see pictures of it all the time on the forum and on Strava. My only consolation is that it went to a great home. :cry:
