    8 is pretty steep, considering it has brakes and hubs that are an evolutionary dead end.

    I'd counter with 5, tell them about that, then walk if they get weird....

    does it look like that one?

    If everything is primo, and I mean the bike has been a garage decoration for most of it's life, then you might not be too bad - but I'd go more int the $500-600 range.

    what you're running into is someone that paid ~$1600 for the bike new and thinks it is still worth that on the market. for what he's asking, you could almost get something like a new Motobecane Fantom 29 with SLX/XT on it.

    You should test it out and see. You'd probably have to service the shock.
