    Is this a good deal on a ASR-5?

    I've been looking to get my first full suspension bike, and the ASR-5 I think would be great for the terrain around here in Western NC where I live. I saw this ad on craigslist for an 2011 ASR-5 and I was wondering assuming that it is in good shape, is it a good deal?

    Thanks for any input

    I hope there are no "breaks", but brakes would be nice!

    My LBS wanted $3500 for a 2012 just like it. So a $1000 less doesn't sound too bad...I would offer $1900-2000 though.

    Got my wife a 2011 demo 5 race model last year for 2,100, it was in great shape, that was a good deal.

    It is a dropper in the pics, but it's not included
    LOL - im looking at this bike or building a custom ASR5.
    Building is always more fun imo.

    Ask if those are the dt swiss tricon wheels, those were spec'd on some comp cyclist builds when bought my 2011. I can't tell from the pics.

    They are great wheels but they are not serviceable by your LBS, most shops won't replace spokes, they must be mailed to bti or qbp, by your shop only. Its a huge hassle and if the guy rode hard or ran the chain off the cassette into the spokes they are on borrowed time.

    BTW, it's not for sale anymore unless you happen to be "that friend."
