    Offering on used 09 SID fork

    Well there selling a 2009 GT Zaskar frame with 09 Sid race fork, thomson seat post and DT swiss 420SL rims for $500 OBO and I asked if he could part out the fork. He said to make an offer how much should I offer, and will the fork fit on my 2010 Avalanche?

    The fork SHOULD fit on your Avalanche with out issue. Only problem you could run into is if the current owner shortened the steerer tube. Have the current owner measure the steerer tube and check it against your current fork.

    For an 09 Sid, depending on the model and time used. maybe $300-350

    At that price why not just offer the guy $450 and take the whole bike for parts.

    $500 obo I would offer $400 cash for everything. Keep what you want and sell the rest or keep for spares.

    Buy the whole thing and I'll give you $200 for it. Seriously, it's a good deal for just the wheelset and fork.

    seems like the frame is an upgrade from your bike, why not take everything and use your parts to make a new bike from it.

    take the fork off the bike and measure the steerer tube. Keep i mind the spacers will change the length of the tube that is needed.

    1) Buy said frame/fork/seatpost/wheelset
    2) Put everything except the frame on your current bike
    3) Put the parts you're replacing on the Zaskar
    4) Sell Zaskar with your old parts
    5) Profit
