    Because it isn't one groupset. It has all different levels of parts on it, Ranging from Alivio to XT.
    The bike is nothing more then circles turning circles, It's the human motor that makes it elegant.

    I'd pay $200 for that.

    Agree w ProjectDan, 200 is all that would be worth. And "mishmash" not mismatch, maybe it's a Canadian thing, roughly means the same more like all sorts of different parts.

    Others are right, that bike isn't worth more than $200-300. This is a perfect example of sellers who doesn't understand the concept of depreciation. I always like to use the computer analogy because the advancement in bike technology seems to be almost as quick. You wouldn't pay $800 to buy a 9 yr old computer would you?

    Nine years ago that computer might have been the cream of the crop..... but now it isn't worth much. Same thing with this bike.

    I wouldn't pay $800 for that. I wouldn't pay $400. Well, maybe if the seller was a chick, and cute. Maybe.

    The photo mightn't be the best but that does not look like a Marzocchi fork on that bike.

    The reason I say that is the fork doesn't look to have a certain piece on it in the 'M' shape that is usualy found on Marzocchi forks.

    The bike looks like the guy bought a frame and threw a bunch of junk/spare parts that came off of entry level bikes on there.

    If he's really asking for $800, he'd might as well be robbing you.

    Just so you are aware, in my opinion that is not a Marzocchi fork. And no, not worth $800.00.

    definitely NOT a Marzocchi fork ... the brace is wrong and the stickers are on backwards.and the "M" is sideways. Sad attempt by the seller to rip you off
    I used to ride to Win ... Now I ride to Grin

    While my guitar gently weeps, my bike sits there mocking me

    2005 trek fuel ex 8 price?

    I am interested in a 2005 trek fuel ex 8 that is for sale locally. A short list of items on the bike are as follows: shimano deore LX hyd. brakes, lx crank, bontrager tires, rock shox rega? front susp, pedal have flat/clip-on sides. I know that's not alot of info but see what you can do. The tires are about 75%. It's a very clean bike that appears to have been sitting in a storage facility for a little bit of time (not road hard). The left handlebar shift is seized (told it's from sitting). Trek dealer told seller that a 64.99 service would fix all the little problems/adjustments. The seller wants $800 (i'll have to service it) so out the door 865. The bike is incredibly clean but I understand the computer philosophy and don't want to overpay. Let me know what you think this bike is worth based on the above, thanks.

    That is over pay IMO - but not by much - offer $650 (I'm just winging it here)
    AFTER really inspecting it on the surface, flip the bike upside down and remove the chain from the chain ring and chech for loose or notchy, also spin the wheels and check the pedals and check for the same.
    While Upside-down, also look for any cracks or damage.

    Right side up:
    - Lock the front brake and feel for play in either the fork's lower/upper area and at both ends of the headset.
    -Drop the bike and listen for any 'clunking' (not chainslap) for indications of worn bushins and other areas.
    - dial in/out any dampers and see if they work...

    THEN test ride - I'm sure I missed something....others can fill the gaps if I did
    Honestly... ahh I give up
