    kenda 2.3 tires
    ks dropper post i950r with remote

    If the parts are new, it looks like a great deal, but a 2005 frame? That's 8 years, that's alot of riding! But I guess if the seller looks likes he's honest go with it, just be careful!

    If the parts are newish I don't know how you can do much better for a grand. Heck, the i950 is $250 alone.
