    Deal? Or no?

    Since I'm not 100% sure what the heck I'm doing (newbie) I'm hoping someone can tell me if I'm getting ripped off. Found a 2012 Jamis excile sport with rock shox reba dual29ers and upgraded to hydro brakes all for $600. Is that a decent deal with the significant upgrades? Thank you for any insight

    It depends on the disc brakes.

    The reba is a significant upgrade but if the person got the bike at a year end closeout they probably paid closer to $500. I wouldn't say its a great deal. Probably a decent asking price.

    I would try to talk them down.

    Is it me, or does the front tire look like it will hit the down tube when the fork compresses?

    Hard to tell from the pic but it almost looks likes a 26 inch fork. The clearance from tire to fork arch looks very small. Maybe its the angle of the picture.
