    05 Kikapu Deluxe Frame Price??

    Anyone have any idea what an 05 Kikapu Deluxe Frame can sell for? I just got the bike a couple months ago but I'm thinking about switching back to a hardtail (maybe an explosif). I wanted to swap parts, and understand that some may not be interchangeable. I was just curious what I might be able to get for the frame, with rear shock. Bike retails for 1699. Thanks. It's a 16 btw.

    I heard from LBS that Kona is only selling the high-end King Kikapu frames in '05. Those frames retail for a LOT, like 1200 or so (I think). So you could try to get what the 2004 Kikapu Deluxe frames sell for ($599 at wheelworld.com) but the '05 has 4" of travel (vs. 3.5" in 2004) and a better shock ... I just saw a Kikapu Deluxe 2004 frame go for about $300 on ebay. Damn, why would you want to sell it? The Kikapu is a GREAT xc bike... are you sure its all dialed in and set up just right for you?
