    Is this a good deal?
    Hey Guys, Wanting to jump on a 29er and have the oppotunity to buy a 2002 (i think) 29 super caliber. My friend told me it was a super caliber frame with all the the Mt. Tam components. XTR Rear, XT everywhere else, I am not sure what fork it has, I know Marz and he said it did not have a lockout. MX-29 maybe?? Anyway it needs a new back rim but he will sell me complete bike for $350.00 I think this is a good buy, what do you think?
    I will prob turn into a SS if I get it.

    Also, it is a 17.5 and I am 5'11. I typ ride a 19" 26er but the TT looks long enough that it wouldnt be a prob. Any of you 6 footer riding this 17.5. Thanks in advance. BK

    Sounds like a can't miss. Even if you part everything out you'll be ahead of the game.
