I made a bit of an "impulse buy" on ebay yesterday and I want to know what people think.
2007 Kona King Frame (looks to be new):
The seller was a bit light on the details but here is what they included.
"There is a Marzocchi Z3 bomber on the Bike with a Chris King Headset Blue. The wheels are custom built With Mavic Rims. The crank is a Truvativ Stylo with thru axle bottom bracket. Shifters are LX shimano. XT Rapid Rise Shimano rear deraileur. Truvative Stem 90mm 5 degrees of rise. The pedals are an older pair of Shimano SPD's."
It appears to me he bought the frame and pieced the bike together for resale.
I bought the bike for 550 + 150 shipping. So basically for $700.
I mostly road bike but want to transition into some mtb. I will be mostly riding XC nothing too hardcore. I was generally looking for something that will treat me well last a long time and allow me to get on all kinds of trails.
I am hardly an expert in bike hardware and I wouldn't normally purchase a bike this way. But, like I said it was an "impulse" buy and I decided to take a risk.
So assuming all the parts are functional, what do people think?
Here is the listing with photos:
