Help?! 03 Hollowpoint Team any good?
guy wants 1200 for it... looks like it is good shape... guys at local shop say it is and that components are worth the price. I have read horror stories about frames of around this vintage falling apart... and I am 250 lbs.
Rookie needs advice fast!!! Thanks guys!
Overpriced! You could buy a New 08 MKIII Sport and have a better bike with advanced technology.. Check out http://www.rscycle.com/ before you make a decision if you call them there very helpful and fit you with the right bike. Good luck
The MK1 frame will break if you ride it hard, especially if you are a "clydesdale".
It will crack right where the shock attaches to the top tube.
04 MK2 frames were a little better, but still broke either where the shock attached to the seat tube or where the top tube meets the head tube.
I know this because I've owned a Mk1, 2, and 3. I'm 180#
No probs with the 3.
