    Help valuing a Lenz

    I've come across a used '03 Lenz Revelation here in California in respectable shape and I can't find a valuation for it. It isn't very well known here but I thought the contributors in thsi forum might have a better handle on it's value and reputation.

    Help?

    Okay....

    So my son is riding this rig on spec with a Rolhoff hub. He is a High School racer of some ability and loving it. Does anyone have ANY info on this bike?

    '03 rev frame was probably ~$1500. It's a great bike, but depreciation is depreciation. I would say that it's probably valued at ~40% of original value. But that's just me looking at it from a pure depreciation model. The motto is, it's worth what someone will pay for it.

    I don't know if this helps you or not...

    I don't know anything about that Lenz at all. The only Lenz I've ridden is the DH bike, and it pretty rode well. Are you gonna turn that Revelation into one of these... ?

    I'd say that nowadays Lenz is making some of the best 29ers out there.

    I want one!

    Do they actually allow those on the slopes?

    Looks like skiing with a seat, for when your legs get tired, and something to keep your hands in the perfect position (handlebars).

    I want to see those in some big moguls.
    What, me worry?

    They do - Devin Lenz (who offered snow bikes last time I checked) took several of us from the Mojo DH team up a couple of seasons ago. I got stuck with a smaller pink version which was kinda Barbie looking (being pink and all) - but you could actually carve - not slide - a 360 on the thing. They're fun, the one I rode stuck to the ground like you wouldn't believe. Jumping is a bit different without the directional stability offered by actual wheels, but it's not too far off.
    Now with more vitriol!
