Nice looking MTB on cambr site

If someone is looking to try out the sport this looks like a reasonable deal.

For an ugly bike that is priced well. I wonder what it weighs. Lost me on the 32 front ring though. Real men ride 34.

Wow! That's a great bike for the price! Basically the same bike as mine, but mine is thr Chinese re-mold. I've never weighed mine though Ken! I do know my frame was listed at 2.6lbs. It rides really nice! I was going to sell mine but, seeing that price, now it looks like I'd be better off swapping the fork to my epic, selling the wheels and using the rest of the parts for a new build! Lol

How do you like the Epic? I picked up an '09 Epic Marathon frame M5 in December and just got everything I need to build it this weekend. Some parts I'm swapping over from the Sette for the time being but will eventually upgrade. Can't wait to ride it!

<------ avatar pic is riding 26 hardtail. I was 30 pounds heavier than now with a dope 29er. Coincidence? I think not. The hardtail 26 is an evil breed, causes child hunger while obesity in others. Diabolical!

The epic is a great bike. You give up very little weight on it versus FS carbon bikes. The suspension is cool but needs maintenance every once in a while at the tune of $300! It rides well. It climbs like a HT and sucks up bumps like an FS in the downhill sections. It's definitely my preferred bike for long rides. The fork on mine though is sub par. I'd like to replace it.

I almost bought a Carbon Epic. Definitely in the top bunch of FS bikes to consider if you are going racing.

He will take $500 and no less right now. He said bike weighs about 27 pounds. If he sits on it another month I'll give him another call.

If the forks weren't blue I'd buy it myself and part it out.

This isn't "counting cars" so I wouldn't try to flip a mtb unless it was a guaranteed home run.

Nope. I already have bikes anyway, I could use a fresh suspension fork and I like Reba's as they perform well and are easily rebuildable.

Never mind D! I thought mine was a Reba. It's a Recon and it sucks! Lol.

27 seems heavy for that frame. He must have lead in those wheels or something! Lol. I think Ken weighed my Trek in at 28. My Epic is a little lighter than the trek was and my carbon HT Chinese re-mold based on this XTC frame is significantly lighter than both of them. I've got a set of 1400g Mavic wheels and a 3lbs fork on mine though. Not sure what this guy has on the XTC. But for anyone in the market to build a light MTB, that frame has a lot of potential. It would be relatively easy to build a 20lbs or sub 20lbs MTB out of that thing! But you have to like 26"'s!

Yeah you aren't kidding. That fork is 3.7 pounds.
I think Ken poured Cement in those tires and handlebars to lower the price

Thanks anyway and Yeah I agree (I want a 29 fork anyway)

Is that an Ebay Carbon frame you mentioned?
How do you like it?

Yes it was. Lets say I am nicely surprised. It's super light, rides really nice and haven't had a single problem with it. I'm even impressed with how good the finish is on it. If I put Giant XTC decals on it you would never know its a re-mold. There's pictures somewhere in the bike photo thread.
