Last thread on this.. Whats the better deal?


Recommended Posts

I have enough extra change laying around to buy one of these bikes this week. The 04 is firm on his price and has a ton of extras. The 05 and 08 bikes I have seen in person and are in great shape. The 08 was raced a couple times bike and has a complete rebuild (60hrs). Under the bikes I put the prices I have got them to. Looking at getting it this week. Which is the better deal?

The only thing I am worried about on the 08 is that a 24 yr old has raced it a couple times. Comes to find out he doesnt have any of the reciepts for the rebuild. Says he used a Wiseco complete top end kit and a Hot Rod bottom end with all new seals and bearings.Plastics are a little scratched up but that is fixable. Other than that it runs great. I just dont want to get someones lemon.

If he's only raced it a couple times, it's really not a big deal. These bikes are designed to be raced. If it had been raced for years, that would be another story. I know trail guys that probably put their bikes through more abuse than racers do and racers often maintain their bikes very well.

If you wanted to save some coin the 05 wouldn't be bad. It's the same everything for the most part minus the SSS suspension. I have an 05 and the suspension was redone at RG3 and it was very good. Although, for the extra money I'd get the 08 as it does offer the better suspension and several other updates.
