    Nah, it isn't spam, just gloating. That bike is the prize for a sales contest that Dick's Sporting Goods had for their bike techs. It's a much-upgraded version of the standard Nishiki Kinzua that they sell, with a fairly awful paint job IMO.

    (I just got an e-mail today saying mine was on the way)

    Some one in State College Pa is trying to get $2500 for one.

    The Nishiki brand has always been a custom sticker on a stock set up brand...

    I know this an old thread bump, but I have a chance to pick up this same bike for $600 from an acquaintance who is a bike mechanic at Dick's. Is that a fair deal? Given the specs, it seems like a good deal to me, but I figured I'd ask before I pull the trigger. Thanks!

    That's a pretty good price in my opinion if it's new or very lightly used. The fact that the bike is owned by a mechanic means it is probably assembled, adjusted and maintained right. They're $899 new at Dick's online plus shipping of $80 (with a $15 promotional credit).

    It's brand new, and hasn't even been assembled, though he said he'll put it together and tune it up if I buy it. Might end up picking it up this week, I'll be sure to post a picture in this thread if I do.

    I got mine for $100 less. It's a solid bike for either price. You can find some used 29ers with better components if you don't mind looking around. Hydraulic brakes and air dampened fork for $600 in a new 29er is pretty difficult to find. I've ridden the bike a handful of times and it performs well. If you're over 185lbs though you may need a beefier fork and other components tho.

    even at 800 its a good price for those specs on an entry level 29er. and BTW Dick's is selling them now. they werent just prizes for the Tech.BUT I will point out that the wheelset WILL need up grading. On weinnman's web sit those x26's are in the urban catagory NOT Mountain.yes double walled, but the spokes pull through the eyelets. Not something I'd want on singletrack.I've had to upgrade two customers to Mavics who had these wheels on their bikes. the Fork is fine for 185lbs for XC or trail, Not Am or Freeriding.

    That is a pretty damn good price for a brand new bike with those specs, below Bikes Direct and Airborne prices.

    That is funny

    Hopefully nobody is dumb enough to pay that much just because it has a different paint job.

    It's not just a new paint job, most of the components are upgraded. That was still a stupid price though.

    The bike's been great (considering the whole "free" part). Wheels, stem, handlebars and seatpost are the same as the ones on the base model though. Those were the first things to go, there's been a notable improvement since.

    With a number of Kinzua Limited edition sightings, I think it would be interesting to track where some of the 155 bikes are located:
    #2 - Choctaw, OK - Small (Craigslist $700)
    #10 - Grottoes, VA (Craigslist $700)
    #13 - Pittsburgh, PA (Craigslist $800)
    #15 - St Louis, MO - Small (mine)
    #23 - Bakersfield, CA - Small (Craigslist $1050)
    #27 - Chicago, IL - Small (Craigslist $500)
    #41 - Dayton, OH (Craigslist $800)
    #53 - This thread - Medium (User: unaware)
    #58 - this thread - (User: JasonSlicker343)
    #112 - Pittsburgh, PA (Ebay )
    #117 - St Louis, MO - Medium (Ebay $503)
    #121 - Chicago, IL (Craigslist $500, User: DETarch)
    #129 - Charlotte, NC -Large (Craigslist $675)
    #131 - This thread (User: LeCochonDanseur)
    #138 - Harwinton, CT (Craigslist $1600)
    #139 - University Park, PA (unsold on Ebay $2000)
    #??? - Cumming, GA - Large (Craigslist $700)


    I picked up mine off Craigslist, mint condition for $500. The bike tech was a road-biker and needed cash for an engagement ring. A similarly equipped bike would go for twice the amount if I purchased at Bikedirect, and at a local bike shop? forget about it!

    I haven't taken the bike to a trail, but with limited riding around in my basement it shifts smooth and handles well. It probably weighs a bit north of 30 lbs.

    Just bought #121 in Chicago. Got it for $500, couldn't pass up the component group for the price. I'll post pics as soon as I have the chance. Definitely will be replacing stem, handlebars, and seatpost and getting new platforms before I start riding in the spring. Going to be on the lookout for rims as well.

    Appreciate the feedback everyone!

    I just picked up #2 in Choctaw today for $500. My daughter needed a bike and for the components it was a good price. This bike was a giveaway at the grand opening at the local store.

    The only issue I have with the bike is that the person Dick's calls a bike tech stripped the drive side crank when installing the pedal and now I need to find a replacement crankset.

    Picked up #129 over the weekend. Haven't had a bike since before I could drive. I had been renting one locally to hit some trails, decided it was time to get my own and this was described as a good deal so I pulled the trigger.

    what does everyone think about the regular kinzua (2012)? I ordered the bike and its ready to be picked up but I have a coworker who has a 2011 trek mamba that has been sitting (the subject came up after talking about my purchase)

    I can get the used trek mamba for 650 or the brand new kinzua (which seems suitable for a beginner) for 488 with tax, three year warranty and speedometer.

    the 2012 was taken off the website but the specs should be the same as the 2013
    Frame: Heat-treated/butted 6061 aluminum with shaped top tube, shaped down tube, and replaceable hanger
    Fork: SR Suntour XCT V3, with manual lockout, 100mm travel
    Rear suspension: N/A
    Cranks: SR Suntour XCT V2
    Front derailleur: Shimano Tourney TX50
    Rear derailleur: Shimano Acera, 7 speeds
    Shifter: Shimano EZ Fire
    Brakes: Tektro Novella with 160mm rotors
    Rims: Weinmann 32H double wall aluminum
    Tires: WTB Prowler 29" x 2.1"
    Handlebar: Steel
    Stem: Aluminum
    Speeds: 21
    Gears: Shimano
    Seatpost: Alloy
    Seat: WTB
    Head set: Threaded 1 1/8"
    Chain: KMC Z-51
    Hub set: (F) Alloy QR, (R) Alloy QR
    Seat Clamp: Aluminum QR
    Grips: Dual Density

    I would start a new thread with your question if I was you. I think you may get more hits and information that way. As for me, I can't give advice as I was set on whatever I could find under 400, and was convinced to move to this deal as it was better then anything else I was willing to go to.

    I picked up number 86 today. Good bike for the value but pretty much no service afterward the sale($60 for a 1 year plan and only 1 free tuneup). I pretty much expected that and don't really want the guys at ***** working on it anyways. The guy told me its a good entry level downhill bike and it weighs around 25 pounds. I think he took that with a scale set 5 or so pounds light. Overall its still a pretty sweet bike. Good bang for the buck for anyone wanting to try out a 29er with decent components.

    Has anyone upgraded the rear hub or bottom bracket?

    I think I just bought the last new-in-box one from DSG this afternoon on-line. After I placed my order, the bike is no longer listed on the DSG web site. I guess I should have printed off the specs since Nishiki does not list this bike on their site.

    Anyone with a Nishiki 29er Limited Edition still out there? I'd like to get some updated feedback if you've been riding it.

    Wow! Quite a revival/thread for a $500 bike! Maybe like beanie babies, I better buy one now just for the investment opportunities!

    Mine is riding great so far. The air suspension takes the bumps out of the ride, the shifting is quick and precise, and the disc brakes will stop as quickly as physically possible. The components on the bike are great, and would cost a lot more on any other bike, including bikesdirect bikes. As long as the frame fits, this is a tremendous value.

    The unique thing about this bike is that there are only 155 people who have the pleasure of owning one, so this thread won't be overflowing with reviews.

    I ended up selling mine and buying a Scott Spark. Just didn't like the feel of the 29er. Great bike though. If it were a 26er I would have kept it.

    I have a chance to get one(Nishiki Adult Kinzua Limited Edition 29er Mountain Bike 2013) at a very good price but have a question for the more savy folks here.
    I'm a very senior citizen that tries to stay active. My dilemma is my weight @240lbs. Will this hold up if used on Rails to trails type bike paths with 240 lbs on board? I will not be doing any hard trails...
    Thanks
    If I do purchase, I'll return to this thread with price and Limited Edition Bike Number.

    #23 is in the Tahoe. $700. The guy said he only ran it up and down the driveway a couple times & from the looks of it, I believe him. Looks new. Post some pics later.

    after about an hour of riding around the neighborhood & I couldn't be happier.
    well, after i replace the saddle i will be.. thing is horrible.
    gonna get, saddle, shorter stem, alum bars & pedals. then i should be good till stuff breaks.
    Overall great bike for me, not a hard core downhill'er, mostly light XC.
    heres a pic.
