I am currently selling my road bike and planning on buying a MTB. Today, I found a used but in great condition Absalon Championship Oetzi Aluminum bike. I am looking for feedback/ride quality for this bike. Is this frame a good frame? The guy is asking $1300 for the complete original bike. I am not sure if this is a good price.

If it is this bike http://www.bianchiusa.com/archives/2006-bicycles/reparto-corse/absalon-championship-oetzi-aluminum/
it appears to be a very high end XC race bike. Sounds like a good price for a used race ready bike if it is great condition.

Probably very good for smoother trail riding with lots of climbing. I would not be very good for very rocky trail of difficult and fast downhill. XC racers have steep quick turning geometry, not as easily balanced for braking hard downhill or riding over bigger rocks.

It would be a very good bike for transitioning from road riding to trail riding.

I have an Oetzi Carbon. I'm not sure if the geometry is the same but..... Most uncomfortable, unpredictable bike I've ever ridden. It SUCKS.
