    What do you guys think...... Bike Appraisal

    Well after many months of batteling the demons in my head, I think it is in my best interest to sell my bike. My career does not leave much time for biking and injuries are devestating.
    That being said, I am looking to sell my Banshee Morphine. I was thinking about asking $950. I am curious to hear what your opinions on this matter are. I take pride in maintining my bicycles, a little bit of common sense can really benifit the longevity of a bikes life.

    The only part that is different form the pictures is the Shadow Conspiracy interlocking chain, instead of the KMC.

    Thanks, Evan

    Here is the part list:
    18" Morphine Blk
    05' Manitou Sherman Flick 6" TPC travel, travel adjust 20mm
    Race Face Diabolus cranks 165mm
    Magura Louise FR brakes 8"F 7"R rotors
    Woodman Spiky sealed bearing pedals
    F Wheel: Sealed Bearing 20mm hub(quality) laced to a 36H DoubleTrack

    How comfortable is that seat to actually sit and pedal "long" distances on?

    Thanks for the input guys,
    I felt anywhere from $900-$1000 would be reasonable. I built it for just over $1000 many parts new and some used from buddies so if I got at least 900 I would be content.

    As for the Funn Throttle seat, it is hard and not very comfortable to be honest. I am used to seats like the WTB Power V and Azonic Big Drop, so that may alter my perception of comfort.
    On the flip-side the seat looks killer, is very well made, and is quiet durable (CroMo rials and tough fabric). It makes for a killer Dh seat if you into the lighter XC style seats rather than the long "pinchable" saddles. I would recommend the saddle as it is a quality product with a great combination of features.
