    $1,600.00 seems like a decent deal if the "Bumps and Bruises" aren't anything major. You could offer $1,400.00 and see what he says... that would be a pretty good deal.

    Depends what you mean by single track, I have the same model but mine is pretty stock, if the single track is typical north east gnarly, rooty and rocky get the Rize, if it is just a bumpy rail trail get the Trail SI2.

    seems a bit steep

    I think it is somewhere between a good deal and a fair deal. Considering you can get a NEW RZ 120 for 2200 it doesn't seem like a good deal. It does seem at least fair though. Maybe be on the lookout for a Rush....

    It's red. Offer $2400............................

    Oh sorry, I finally get a red bike (well my road bike) real soon from Cannondale and their great warranty!!!

    Seriously, It's $3000 new and bike really don't hold their value so to speak. If all those bruises you mentioned are real minor, I'd say $1500 is the most I would pay.
    Lead by my Lefty............... right down the trail, no brakes.

    If it's in good condition, and you have the money that Rize 3 has waaaaaaay better specs than the Trail SL 2 29er I'm not a Shimano guy, but the Rize has near top of the line components, vs the SL2s near bottom of the line.

    The Rize smokes the Trail all the way around, hands down. If you're gonna ride, it's best to have the right tool for the job. One of the great deals with the Rize is that you can do have both a full suspension and the ability to lock out both front and rear. Yea and I agree that the XT components are a very good deal. I would be surprised that any used MTBs for sale have no bumps or bruises... just saying...
