As many of you are aware, I have been shopping for a new bike for a couple years. Thanks for all of the tips and leads! I bought one this weekend and have put about 70 miles on it in the last couple days. Unbelievable the difference between my carbon fiber hard tail and the modern full suspension.
I bought he bike from a rental fleet at a five star resort here in Park City. The bikes are rented to tourist at this resort, and the shop is in the back of a covered parking garage. I think they only see rich tourist and are really in great shape. In case one of you is interested, I'm passing on the details.
Rocky mountain element 50's - $1,400 to 1,500
Altitude 50's - 1700-1800.
Slayer SXL 50's - 1,400 - 1,600.
As a disclaimer, I have no interest in any of these transactions. I just feel like the guy did me right and I want to help out any of you that also have an interest.
PM me if you want contact info. I found all of the specs for the bikes on HuckNRoll. The bikes are 09's.
So now I guess I won't have to but heads with the guy in Africa!!
