    Do you guys think this frame on ebay will be a good starting point for my bike build?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=250100144510

    I want a good all mountain bike and I always had Trek bikes before! I am getting back in to MTB and want to build a bike up... I have a VRX 400 right now!!! I was going to buy that frame and a nice all mountain shock, and then swap everything from my old bike to my new...then just replace as needed!!

    Hi 03z-71,

    I cannot really help you with much info. I picked up a frame and still building it, no experience riding it yet. It seems nicely built but I saw quite a few reviews of broken frames, I think this is the case with this one i.e. the rear triangle. I am not sure that I would buy it used as there will be no warrenty. There are quite a few mixed reviews so I am not sure myself. There are decent deals at Wheelword on some Konas. I do not know if this helps you much but that is what I know. It does seem light though.

    Agreed ...... if yer willing to take the risk of a warrantyless frame, am sure a Liquid would be fine, unless ridden outside of the design intentions..... Myself,am fond of factory warranties (at least from co's that actually "truthfully" warrant them, such as Trek)

    I bought mine new(2004model) for $450 CND but up here all prices are high.
    It was somewhat of impulsive buy but I do like the way it looks, the welds seem well made and I hear good things about the shocks. I am waiting for a new set of wheels and then I can give you a ride report.
