    Devinci Johnson opinions?

    Hey all,
    I'm looking at buying a used Devinci Johnson, and I wanted to get your opinions on the bike itself as well as the components. Here's a list of the specs on the ad:

    "2006 Johnson in excellent condition. Alex DM24 rims, SRAM X-7 rear derailleur, Truvatic Hussfelt crank with dual rings E13 chain guide and bash ring, Fox DHX 3.0 shock, Rockshox Domain 318 fork, Kenda DH tires."

    If anyone has owned or does own one, what are the pros/cons of the bike? As well, what do you think of the components it has, and what would you suggest offering? The owner is asking CAN$1,150

    Thanks, and Happy Easter!

    P.S. I know the X-7's are junk

    I had one. I was a fun bike that jumped well. Compared to modern bikes, the head tube angle is a bit steep, and the BB is comically high. But they are fun and super strong!
    I always ran mine in the low/180mm setting in the rear.
    I sold mine 2 YEARS ago for around 1100 CAN. It was freshly rebuilt. New pivot bearings, and freshly polished frame. Was like brand new.
    It had a rock shox totem coil, MTX33s laced to hope hubs, DHX 5.0, Holzfeller crank, e13 guide, Thomson stem, Chromag OSX bar, juicy 5 brakes. X9 shifter, X7 der. Twenty6 prerunner pedals.
    That bike is way too much $$. I'd say it's worth 600 tops.

    Thanks for the reply!
    I don't think the guy'll be willing to go that low, so I'll probably have to keep looking. Thanks for the advice though!
