I bought a used 2011 Trex Remedy 7. The guy I bought it from had bought it as a leftover and used it for two years. He is a avid rider and has lots of bikes and participates in races ect. The bike seen allot of rock gardens ect and has a some normal scratches on the frame no cracks or dents I checked carefully.
I got to test ride it little this morning as I only picked it up last night. He included some plastic pedals, because he uses clip on's, and put on the plastic one's that he bought once because he forgot his clip on ones.
After riding for 10 minutes one of the pedals came off. I took the bike into my LBS and he's going to order the new part and tune up the bike. Otherwise it rode real good for the 10 minutes it worked.
He included the original tires that came with it, as he only used them for a week, the tires on it are excellent and good quality. I'll keep the originals as spares as they seemed pretty thin grade rubber.
I think the guy I bought it from said he did all of his own servicing, I don't know how anyone strips the threads on a crank but that's what I got.
So I paid $1060.00.
I bought it in New York as I am In New Jersey, Round trip tolls were $28.00 plus gas.
LBS will at least be 90.00 for tune up plus parts. ect
So I'm probable be close to 1200.00 before I can ride it, which was his original asking price.
