    he told me he bought the bike in its stock form then upgraded nearly everything. From my research this seems to be the case, specifically relating to the fork, drivetrain and wheels. I was going to purchase the New Stache frame from Trek (based off the 7) and build my own (with similar components of what he already has on the bike and it looks like I’ll be pushing $4000.00 which is why I’m considering this deal.
    New/comparable bikes with the hardware he has are close to the same price of what he’s asking, or possibly more. I’m sold on the Stache though but as Trek no longer sells them complete (only the frame) my only option is to build my own ( which gets expensive fast) or buy used.

    the fork and wheels are the only components that really stand out to me. the question on what happened to the single speed components is valid also. if those are super worn then chances are the wheels and fork are well used too. if they're in good condition then it could be worth the price, but for almost 3k, it still seems kind of steep. it's a used aluminum bike and the market is cooling down according to most people

    It's the aluminum frame, run-of-the-mill fork (but still good), aluminum rims and tires that are narrower than came on the Stache, (3.0" tires might not work well on those 30mm rims, if you wanted to put it closer to stock). No dropper. I think that is a little high, maybe $2400?

    I loved my Stache when I had it, but it was the 9.8 carbon with a Pike and 3.0" tires, dropper, GX Eagle, carbon bars. I think I sold it for less than that in similar condition. But that was before the C-word came along. It looks like a solid bike, though.

    So for some perspective, Trek is selling the New Stache frame for $1200, the wheels are Carbon and selling for nearly $1000 for the set, the fork is also close to $1000. That’s $3000 right there. From what I hear with the stache, carbon wheels are a must, especially in the rear as the stock wheels are prone to popping spokes.

    and thanks to all for your input, it’s much appreciated!

    Ah, I didn't catch that those were carbon wheels. And you can fit 2.6" on there. I've shared my thoughts on this before, but 60% of MSRP is what I shoot for on used stuff. MSRP on that bike with all components is probably around $4k, maybe a little less. 60% of $4K is $2400. That's where I'd start, anyway, and see how much he moves. But, I'm also a cheap bastard.

    i thought fox moved to step cast or grip2 dampers and rhythm was on the lower end of their forks? not saying its bad, just not top of the line.

    im not super familiar with wheel performances either, so cant help much there.

    this is all used stuff too, not new.

    the guy looks to have a few listing on pink bike also, so he seems like a reputable seller

    at the end of the day its your call though.

    Thanks guys, I have a lot of good stuff to think about. I’ll keep ya posted! :thumbsup:
    And I agree with the $2200/$2400 starting points, just wasn’t sure if that was tooooo low ball. I’ll be starting there, we shall see.

    If they won’t warranty it, I’d definitely find a reputable shop to tig weld it.

    For what it's worth there is no way I'd pay $3k for a Trek hardtail. You're approaching boutique brand used price territory. I do agree on buying a hardtail though - I ride difficult terrain on mine just as much as my full squish

    I’ll add that not all carbon wheels are created equal.

    I had a pair of Enve carbon wheels that were wayyyyyy to stiff for my type of riding. When I switched to WeAreOne Unions, they were much more compliant and had a much better ride feel.

    I can’t comment on the Bontrager wheels so maybe read some reviews?

    Just a dumb ebike stat from the last week at Kanuga. There was another day of 10 miles and 2k feet. Its not chest beating or anything like that, but for a park like that you get so much riding in.

    Personally that’s a bit high…I paid like $1200 I think for my stache 7 with white industries hubs laced to Easton arc 45 rims. Those wheels alone are close to a thousand…given I think I got a really good deal. Between the current market and the fact that the stache is an amazing bike that they stopped selling MAYBE it’s worth a small premium but not that much.

    i sold my 2014 remedy 7 with a similar setup (stock Bontrager wheels, not pro) in 2020 for like $1800

    Anyone have any experience removing and installing headset cups? Especially sans special tools? Planning to install an angle headset and debating between shop install and home install and potentially buying some tools. Looks like some workable options on Amazon for a decent price so may just go that route.
