Posted this in the AM section but no answer. Guess i`ll try here.
Ok, so i`m going to Argentina in a couple of weeks and since 20mm hub 120+mm forks are WAY too hard to find in my country (i`m from Uruguay) i might as well take advantage of the trip and i´ve been lookin for a good fork to buy when i`m there.
Narrowed it down to 2 options:
1.- This Pike 409 U-turn 95-140mm:
It´s used but according to seller it has been regularly serviced and works perfectly. Price is 400 usd w/20mm hub included (Formula hub).
2.- This Pike 454 Air U-turn 110-140mm:
This guy wants 600 usd for the fork only (brand new i think). I know it´s expensive, but this is in South America, these are not common here and buying one from ebay might cost me more expensive due to custom fees. The guy includes a good 20mm hub (hope or similar).
The point is that this guy plays guitar and i`m selling one, the guy takes it from me plus 300 usd for the fork or the guitar plus 380 usd for the fork and 20mm hub.
I think i´m pretty much decided for the 409 but what i´m asking is: if is it really worth it to give this guy a guitar plus 380 usd for the Pike 454 instead of paying 400 usd for the Pike 409 and keep the guitar?
