    Some opinions on a Spider 29 listing

    A friend of mine is getting back into riding and looking for a different bike. He's been gettting beat up on his mid-90's Cannondale hardtail on our group rides.

    There is a local craigslist listing for a medium Spider 29 (2006, I think). I'm just looking for some general thoughts about the model and this parts spec. The TALAS 36 seemed like kind of a weird choice for this bike, but maybe at the low travel setting it matches the rear travel okay?

    Parts List:

    -Medium Intense Spider 29er frame
    -Mavic Crossmax front rim
    -Panaracer Rampage 29 tires
    -Bontrager TLR 29 rear rim
    -extra bontrager TLR 29 rear rim.
    -Fox Float Talas 36 front suspension
    -Fox Float rear suspension (Push Re-Valved)
    -Titec Pluto Carbon handle bars
    -Avid Juicy Seven brakes
    -Lizard Skins grips - Mint
    -Deore XT front crank
    -Deore XT rear derailer
    -Race Face front bash guard.
    -Deore XT rear and front sprocket
    -Deore XT front derailer
    -Easton carbon seat post
    -Specialized seat
    -Cane Creek Headset
    -FSA Interbike threadless headset cap.

    So the fork is a 2015 model? Fox hasn't offered the 36 in 29er form until now. Maybe it's a 34. Also, riding the fork hard in the lower setting is a good way to do some damage -- the lower setting should be reserved for climbing/easy trail.

    Other than the 36 in question, looks like a solid build.

    Thanks, nc. The fork is curious for sure. My friend may go take a look.
