    Used King Kikapu or what other option do I have?

    What else can I get that would be better for XC than this for $1200. I'm 5'9" and 190 lbs. I'm not an amateur but no where close to racer material either. I need to make a quick decision.

    2002 Kona King Kikapu full suspension cross country bike.
    Polished/Brushed Aluminum Finish. Not a scratch on the frame.

    Features:
    -17" Easton Ultra Lite Frame
    -Mars Manitou front fork w/lockout
    -Fox Float RC rear shock w/reboud adj.
    -Race Face Carbon Fiber Cranks
    -XT bottom bracket
    -XT front derailleur
    -XTR rear derailleur
    -XT shift and brake levers
    -Thomson Elite seatpost
    -Race Face Prodigy Stem
    -Race Face headset
    -Bontrager Race 5 deg. handlebar
    -Pauls Quick Release brakes
    -Rolf Satellite wheels (disk brake ready hubs)
    -Cateye CC-FR7CC computer
    -Eggbeater pedals (new)
    -Shock pump inlcuded
    -Bottom bracket wrench included

    Bike has less than 100 miles on it, never raced, just causal trail riding.

    Weighs less than 23 pounds without pedals

    I know what I would do

    I would offer the seller with the Kikapu $1000 and see what happens. That bike is worth $1200 all day but used bikes just don't bring much resale regardless of condition.
    Try to pick out anything by itself and you find it connected to the entire universe.
