    Should I buy it?
    Hi everyone,

    I've been looking to get into some MTB'in and I came across a friend of a friend who is willing to part with his Sette Reken for around $775. I don't plan on doing anything crazy like going off big jumps or anything but I would want a bike to be able to climb decently and take a fair amount of abuse. Any thoughts on the below specs?? The bike looks well maintained and I don't see any damage. I apologize for the vagueness of the questions, but being somewhat new to MTB, I find all the information too overwhelming for my noggin.

    Sette Reken 2012 frameset (no dents whatsoever)
    Easton XC One wheelset (2011)
    Fox F80 (80mm travel) XC RL fork. (full lockout, just had it re-sealed and oiled)
    Shimano XT drive train
    Shimano XT rear Derailleur
    Shimano SLX front derailleur
    Shimano Deore speed Shifters
    Shimano pro chain
    Avid Elixr 5 hydraulic brakes
    Avid brake rotors, 185mm front, 160mm rear
    Ritchey WCS Seatpost (white)
    WTB RocketV saddle
    Truvativ Stylo World Cup Riser Bar (white)
    Sette Edge Stem
    Specialized Fast Trak Tires
    No Pedals

    Nice component group..wheels & fork are great. IDK about the price tho...maybe $650-$700???

    Sounds like a pretty good deal to me. Those components are pretty solid. I'd buy it! My first bike was more expensive and had lower end components. You will enjoy mountain biking with a bike that works consistently a lot more than one with cheap crappy parts that are always broken. Do it!!
