    Is that a good deal? Everything is stock and is in great condition

    Why do you ask?

    You buying one or selling one?

    It's a decent price

    Seeing that the '08 is $1200, I have to figure the '07 was probably at least a grand. Provided the bike is in decent shape, the price is good. 2 problems I see:

    1) The bike is made to be abused, so the previous owner probably beat it.

    2) The Hayes Sole brakes on that bike have a horrible reputation. You will end up replacing them.

    If it's truly in great condition, then your $500 is probably well spent. If you shop wisely, you can find a decent set of hydraulic brakes for $200 or so, OR a set of Avid BB7's and levers for about $125.00.

    There ya go.

    yea its a pretty good deal, the only thing is that not many people like the geometry of the p series for dj/street/park, not that its bad, some people love it and some hate it, so try to take it for a test spin first
