    how much are they asking for it? I wouldnt spend more than 500 on it. You can get a brand new full suspension for 1500 that will kill it. The parts on that are pretty good (xt) if they are in good shape. Make sure the fork and shock are working and adjustable. Disc brakes...shimano or avid.

    How the fuck are those disc only wheels when it has V-brakes on it? You can has rim brake hoops laced to disc hubs and use either type of brakes but a disc specific hoop does not allow for use of vbrakes, it has no machined braking surface. If wheelset is vbrake capable it cannot also be "disc only wheels". I don't know if I'd pay 250 for that bike even if everything is in good shape. It says rear triangle replaced which = crash or bunch of wear. If it's from wear then I'd be guessing the rest of the parts have similar wear. It looks like single chainring up front and see no front derailleur. What fork is it? Looks like maybe Manitou Mars or RockShock Indy...doubt it's in pristine working order. So on and so forth.......I would buy a new full suspension bike before spending the coin on this. Around 200 would be a deal IF the fork isn't toast and whatever's there is in good working order IMO.

    Know why the rear triangle and pivots are new? Because they break... often. I ride with many people who have broken Sugar, Cake and HiFi Gary Fisher bikes. Ask the seller how many times he has had to warranty that rear triangle.

    The life time warranty follows the original buyer, not you. I would pay $250 and not one cent more and consider it a interim bike until you can find something else.
