    I've done a little research but would like to talk with other scalpel owners. I've found what I think to be a pretty good deal and before I pulled the trigger I wanted to hear some opinions. Below is a list of the components and a few pictures.

    I've recently thought about going with a 29er but with my body type it is probably best that I stay with 26". I'm 5'9" with about a 29" inseam and more torso than anything (unless you ask my wife. She'll say I'm more A**hole than anything else. )

    The real dilemma for me is should I spend 3k on a 2 year old bike or spend double that on a new bike. I gotta believe this is a really good deal and this frame is "Made in America" not that it really matters.

    If money is not a problem, I would like to purchase a new one~~
    cause it's more light, and also you got fully warranty.

    If I were on the eve of making a decision for "buying a bike", I'd not think one second and surely buy this one.

    (It's not well seen on the small pics; but taking into consideration what the seller writes),
    if your criteria IS the condition of the bike: How harshly or gently ridden, how many races it's been in (or not) or cosmetic details, etc., then buying such a new looking, "R[IDDEN] ABOUT TEN TIMES" and "KEPT IT IN MINT CONDITION ... 9/10" bike would be a good deal.

    You could spend the money you'd pay for a brand new one for some components you'd like to add on this bike -if there'll be any.

    I used the term "buying a bike" in general. If you're thinking of "buying a specific bike" my thoughts may apply to that (Scalpel) also. But it is your decision and your enjoyment.

    You've got to ask yourself what the cons and pros of a new one will be.
    If lightness is not of your concern, some less grams should not worth extra thousands of dollars.
    Or, would riding a 3 year old bike make you feel bad or not. You should ask and answer such questions.

    2 things here: Emotional (joy of riding a bike, a Scalpel) and material (joy of riding a brand new bike, a brand new Scalpel) concerns. You should weigh each.

    If I would be buying a Scalpel, I'd jump on this. Warranty is something I don't use and remember when I'm riding my bike.

    (I bought all my bikes in this condition and had no problems with them.)

    not sure about 08 but with a 2010 you can mount a 650B front wheel (depending on your weight: stans 355 / velocity blunt) for some of the benefits of a 29r.

    In 08 there is not much clearance in the rear triangle compared to 2011 - may not be able to fit much more than a 2.1.

    overall this deal seems like a good value.

    Is it in mint condition or a 9/10? They're not the same thing.

    I generally hesitate to buy things from screaming salesmen.

    Most importantly, is the seller including the flat pedals??
    I can barely get my mouth around it.
