    IF Steel Deluxe Barn Find

    I have found a guy that is willing to sell his absolutely pristine '03. The frame looks brand new; no suck or slap marks...not scratched at all. The bike is so cherry that the rotors are barely broken in as well as the CK hubs. It literally has been siting in a Park stand for 7 years or so.

    It's spec'd nicely too with:

    King/3.1 (819) tubeless wheelset
    King headset
    XTR cranks, derailleurs, and disc brake rotors/calipers
    XT shifters and brake levers
    XT cassette
    Thomson post
    Easton EA70 Stem and MonkeyLite carbon low risers
    Time pedals
    Salsa QRs

    The only thing out of sorts with the build is a RS Psylo 80-125 fork which, if I buy it, will more than likely be replaced.

    The guy will sell it to me for about the price of a new frame and it will include 2 sets of IF shorts and jerseys, a Quetzal Green helmet and other extra pieces parts from the build.

    Is this a good deal or not? I mean it is a 7yo bike....but damn it's F I N E!

    Sounds like a good buy, especially if its in all new condition. Yeah I would upgrade the fork, but other than that its good to go!

    I sent IF a email to get info on the build that is not obvious from the SN and after 2 weeks and three emails no info.

    Oh well...

    Wow that is a nice find. I wish I could find things in the "barn" like that. Looking forwards to hearing a ride report.
