    Is this offer real?

    Hello to everyone.in this forum. I reside in the Philippines and am looking for a full suspension bike. One of our local bike shops here is offering a Xeon 2008 model. The ad says that it comes in cappuccino color and has a marzocchi 55 fork and a manitou rear shock. Cockpit is mostly ritchey while the brakes are deore. crankset is truvativ and rest of drive train is LX. Selling at around $1300 dollars. Question : Are these the specs for the 2008 Xeon? And for the price, is this a bogus advertisement? The offer is pretty tempting but I want to make sure that I'm not being taken for a ride.

    Thank you.

    (No pictures and full specs were posted in the ad)

    Yes, that's for real. Our international distributors often order different colors and spec than what's offered in the states.

    Thanks for the prompt reply. For the price of $1,300 this seems too good to be true. Any reviews on this particular setup? Pros and cons?
