    FS: 08 Asta Comp @ what price / need help.

    Hey guys,

    I need some suggestions.

    Couple days ago I purchased a Vassago BanderSnatch frame and I plan on taking off most of the components off my 08 Asta Comp

    ~BUT this morning coming up the elevator to work, one of the employees asked me what I was doing with my bike. I told him I am going rip it apart and put most of the parts on my 29’er.
    So my question to you, what do you think I can sell my complete bike for versus target price for just frame & rear shock? He was interested on what I want to sell her for. Everything / frame components work and look new. I did however had to tru my rims.

    So................................................ ..

    I was thinking if I sell the Asta complete, I was thinking around 800-900 and for just frame and rear shock 300-400

    Would either be good set price?

    Thanks

    If it was mine I would say $800 complete $400 for the frame, headset and shock.

    Cool. I figure I was
    pretty accurate on my price.
    When I was @ the shop couple of Peps were asking me what I was going to do w/ the Asta while I was stripping.
    As I was tearing it away and xfering most of the components on my 29'er, I was little sad.

    At the end; I think I am going to keep her. When I get my yearly bonus in Feb '09 I think I am going to put all new LX components on the Asta, but I think I will settle for BB7 brake setup to keep my cost down.

    Here she is as of 10 pm:

    I was wondering why you didn't like your Asta when I saw your first post . . .

    This sounds like me. I too have a Bandersnatch, with a Cannondale Jekyll for a change of pace. The one difference is that I didn't strip one to build the other, and I kept the Ibex S-29 I had intact. But like Jake, I am old, but financially secure.

    Full disclosure: I bent the Bandy's frame (see post #12 from this thread). Please let me know if you have any problems with yours (though I don't think you will).

    Still waiting for a new (2009) frame to come off the boat, allegedly. I really should follow up, but I am lazy and trust the shop owner.

    I am positive it will be resolved by Spring. I would not likely be riding it now anyway. Too much snow & ice.

    At least it was the bike getting broke up and not you. Seems to be a lot of the latter going on in this forum lately.

    TX, more bikes the better until there is no more room anyway

    Is your B'snatch going to be ss? If so, I would hold on to the Asta. The way I see it, Asta for the GB, Thumper and maybe CP, the 29er for everything else. See, that was easy!

    Hey, what size is it? Can I switch out my green frame for your silver one?

    Might still keep that FS around for backcountry GB and Thumper, but that is just me.

    Yep thats correct, but the Snatch can easily be converted to SS.

    The Wocky is really only SS, but does have an adapter / hanger to put on an rear derailer. The only neg is that on the front derailer the cable going to it from the shifter have to be rigged. Either way my heart was set on the Wocky, but I know i'd wuss in a short term to only be SS and I do enjoy my gears, so I did choose Snatch.

    Sweet Snatch you have there , but sucks that you bent the rear. Maybe had too much tension on the rear skewer and hit a rock pretty hard?

    Well.... good to know and I'll look out what happens to mine. I know around here the rocks are very aggressive and I had my share of out of tru rims in couple of rides. I do think you had a lemon as you posted. At least you will be getting a replacement, that's cool. ride it like you did to this one.

    For sure I will be using it. I just got to start saving to put some components back on it.

    Can't comment on the ride since I have yet to rip some trails, but I need to work on the brakes a little more

    So, enough of the BS ,, blah, blah........... here is the PORN:
