I am looking at the below hardtail. Is $1,800 a good deal? It is a 2002 i believe.
Frame: Dean Scout titanium hardtail, "large" per Dean sizing. Full frame specs at Dean's website.
Fork: Manitou Skareb Elite, 100mm fixed travel, air spring, disc & V-brake mounts
Headset: 1 1/8" threadless WTB Momentum, cartridge bearing
Stem: Easton EA50, 0 x 110mm, 2-bolt faceplate
Handlebar: Easton EA70, 3 degree bend
Brake levers: Avid Speed Dial 7
Shifters: Shimano XT 9-spd
Seatpost: Easton EA50, uncut (I think it's 350mm, not sure)
Seat: WTB SST K (kevlar corners)
Seat binder: collar + bolt
Brakes: Avid SD7 V-brakes, Avid brake pads w/ removable/replacable cartridges.
Derailleurs: Shimano XT 9-spd
Cassette: Shimano XT, 12-32 (I think -- might be 12-34, but I'm pretty sure it's 12-32)
Chain: SRAM PC58 w/ powerlink (I think -- might be PC59, but definitely SRAM)
Wheels: 26" Bontrager Race X Lite UST-ready rims, DT 15/17 spokes, DT 240 cartridge hubs (relabeled for Bontrager), radial lace front, 2X rear (I think -- may be 3X), Bontrager skewers
Tires: IRC Serac XC 26x2.1 tubeless, with some Stan's sealant in there too
Cranks: Truvativ Stylo, ISIS, Truvativ chainrings
Bottom bracket: Race Face ISIS, can't remember which model
Misc: Lizard Skins chainstay protector, spiffy water bottle cage, Wellgo-type clipless pedals. I'd probably keep the pedals & cage off the bike, unless you really want them.
I haven't weighed the whole bike recently, but before those wheels, it was low-23lb. The wheels are new from last year, and very very light. There are no dents, dings, or cracks anywhere. Only very minor scratches on some of the frame and handlebar. The wearable parts are all in good shape: brake pads & chain were replaced last year, and I keep my bikes clean, so the chainrings and cassette are in great shape. It's all ready to go, nothing needs any work or adjustment.
