    2016 Riot Used what to look out for

    So i've been looking for a 29er with 130/140 travel and i found a guy selling his 2016 Riot. Is there something i should look out for when i go see it ? Is there any common issues ie: linkages, bearings, pivots etc..Its really down to this or a 2016 Enduro carbon which is +500 more. Any help would be great !

    Look to see what shock is on it. Check the rear axle pinch bolt area to make sure it was overly tightened. Should come with an extra hanger too.

    Did you check out the Bro's current sale prices? I'm guessing what you're looking at is cheaper, but they're running a killer sale which gives you brand new everything with a full warranty. I'd at least use that as a baseline against whatever they're asking for used.

    fixed it. I have seen pics on this forum of a guy who over tightened the pinch bolt and this cracked his frame.

    Well its nice to save 2k on a bike, i think im just going to save up and buy new. 4500 for a new 1x11 with DVO pkg seems like a good deal.
