    Thoughts on the K2 6.0 factory?

    I'm looking for a full suspension bike and was looking at the Scott Spark 60 which is on sale for $1,299. I was walking throught ***** Sports store and saw the K2 6.0 Factory bike on sale for $1000. I don't know much about K2 and haven't seen any reviews of the 6.0. Any thoughts about the K2?

    The K2 comes with Fox 32 float RL forks, Fox RP2 XV rear shock, Shimano Deore XT group set and Deore Hydraulic brakes...

    At the LBS I work at, we sold a few K2 bikes last year. They were spec'd out decently when compared to other bikes in the same price point. However, I noticed that they were a little bit heavier overall. Almost like the Iron Horse bikes. - Spec'd out great - better components -, but the frames were a little bit heavier than another bike in the same price point.

    Since you are showing interest in the K2, ask about the warranty on the frame, and try to see if your "bike mechanic" at ***** isn't just a $8.00/hr bike assembler. Make sure that the service that will be provided will be quality service.

    Then do the same for the Scott.
