I was looking for a new frame, I ran into a local seller asked $900 for a pretty much new 05 S Works Enduro with DHX 5 and CK headset.

Is this frame worth it?

Thanks

Same frame

I bought an '06 Expert (I don't think there's any difference between the Aluminum frames aside from the decal) with a DHX 5 last year for $400. $900 seems steep considering it's an '05 and the CK headsets can be had all day for $100 new.

hell no, thats way overpriced. even if you buy it new you wont get the spesh warranty (unless its a bike shop of course). even with the dhx and ck headset, i wouldnt say the pack is worth more than 650 (saw the frames online used for about 500)

Actually, I'm wrong. The Sworks AL Enduros are made of the lighter M5 instead of the stronger A1, as Sanjuro pointed out in the "Why go M5" thread. I double checked him on their site, and he's correct for a change.:thumbsup:

Still, not worth it.

If you have forgotten, I also advised you to buy the newer version of the Enduro. You ignored my sage advice and purchased two old-style Enduros before getting over your bitterness about being wrong and buying a new one.

Are you ever going to let me live that down?

Yeah, $900 is overpriced. That '06 is now mine, just bought it this afternoon...man, you're on top of things! :D The frame was supposedly only ridden once and is in superb condition...we'll see. The pics looked flawless. I wouldn't go much above $600 on these frames from the sales I've been watching.

Nice, you'll love it. Mine '06 was great but I needed a better fork. That was enough reason for me to spring for an SL.
