well i guess hes just selling the frame for 650? but he will include the rims and brakes for 250?
the rims are rims are mavic 221 rim brake model with LX hubs and straight guage spokes and
brass nipples.the brakes are Avid v-brakes.
what you think i just want to make sure im not getting hossed.
well i got him down a little this is what he had to say..
Hello.I am sorry but your research is a little off. The mokomoko was the
second from the top of the kona line at the time and retailed for aproxx.
$1899.00 at my local shop. That was not including the $499.00 for the fork upgrade
and the other misc. upgrades I have done to the bike.There is no comparison
with the kikapu.It is a low level generic alloy frame that weighs a full pound
more and comes with a non-adjustable coilover shock,not the fox float that
came on the mokomoko.The mokomoko is also a fully butted easton frame that is
not only lighter it is stronger.I will compromise with you and send you the
bike with wheels for $800
No querstion that his bike is far better spec'd than a new base model Kikapu, and $800 is a little more reasonable, but still kinda pricey for what I'm guessing is a 2002 model and will no longer have a factory warranty. This model falls somewhere between the Kikapu Deluxe and King Kikapu if compared to the 2007 line-up. I'd look to find one of those (2006 or 2007) on holdover from your LBS at a discount. What size are you looking for? I'll ask my LBS if they still have anything like that available.
It too much for a 4-5 YO bike, no disc brakes, outdated low end cranks, old shock, and is used. I'd offer him half what he's asking then go from there to maybe 65% of the asking price for the entire bike. If you really want it.
it still seems like your getting hosed for $800 for a older used frame and wheels. I was just saying for around the same cash you could get a brand new bike with a warranty and all. If you could get the entire bike for $700 and it was tuned and trued it would be more resonable. How much travel does it have? 2" or 3"?
nice. make sure that you get the shipping quote in writing, because i just shipped my coiler off and it was insanely expensive, mainly because it was going to an APO address. i'd expect to pay nearly $80 for shipping that moko to you or so. just a heads up.
