    4-Banger

    So I decided to sell my 4 banger and I wanted to get an idea of what its worth. I'm not really sure how much these frames are worth. So for a little backround....its a red 99, it had a crack in the top mount for the swingarm on the seat tube that was repaired but still raw weld, and the shock fraged out so I got another one but the threaded area that the trunnion screws on is too short, but you use the internals from the new one to repair it (I'm too lazy). Anyone's help would be appreciated.

    re-welded pinch bolt tabs are always iffy... rear shock can always be replaced, maybe 100$ with the damage.150$?

    what do you think CTB?

    What kind of shape is the rear end in? The carbon stays, etc. I might be interested.
    Post some pics if you can, or email them to me.

    For some reason, I missed this thead. Nuts. Anyway, the red Banger looks like it cracked where the all do (including mine) on the seat tube weld area. Should be ok, though.

    Did I miss some info? This frame looks like it has the newer 2000 model "no pinch bolt" chainstay. That's a good thing.

    I haven't got it in my hands yet, but from these pictures, it looks like the front half is 2000 model, and the back is 1999. It has the 99 style carbon piece. Maybe this was a late 99 early 00 build.

    It looks like the carbon arm and the dropouts are 99, along with the shock. The rest looks 2000 (pivot hardware, pinch-bolt-free frame and chainstay, etc).
