    Group Buys for the 575?

    Has anyone ever organized a group buy on the 575? Would anyone be interested in trying to find a dealer willing to work with us? Any suggstions as to who?


    If anyone wants a new 06 size medium frame in the Yeti Team color I know where you can get the frame for $999. ebay Item number: 7246331232. Make a "best offer" for $999. (Look at their offers so far.)

    For me even buying the frame at $999 does not add up. The enduro package seems to be the way to go unless you can get a frame for the $700 range. Or buy used parts on eBay, or already have the parts...

    Just some rambling as I search for the perfect deal..

    Yes this has been done before, in fact it is how I got my 575. It was set up through Go-Ride. However at the time several people on here criticized it and said equally good deals were available thru other shops without the group hassle. I think I got a good deal, but I probably could have gotten the same deal elsewhere. If you do a search you should be able to find the info on it, it was a little over a year ago that it took place.

    The Enduro package is tough to beat for the price, although it is more expensive now then when I got mine. Still one of the best deals going though.

    used.

    it's a gamble, but I paid less than 1500 for a 575 in great shape with a great build (X9, XT cranks, Thomson, CK, Avid).

    Mine looks NEW, rides perfectly (after a little bit of initial headache). It takes alot of obsessing on ebay and the others (pinkbike, ridemonkey, etc), but the great deals are out there.

    good luck

    I contacted Go-Ride, they said no deal... Any other suggestions?

    I guess the first question we should know is how much you are wanting to spend? The new enduro's can be had on the cheap. I just don't know how much "cheap" is to you.

    mtbike_AK:

    Try this:
    saltlakecity.craigslist.org/bik/176428242.html

    It's in SLC, and it's a medium...but for $1700, with a DHX and all the thomson bling, you can't beat it. (I dont' know what size you're looking for).

    good luck

    oh yah, here's one sans wheels for $1500, and it looks like a great build, too.

    No idea what frame size it is.
