Guys,
I'm thinking (again) about unloading my medium 06 highline. Raw, V 2.5 stays, 06 marz 888, roco wc (8.75), juicys, sram x9, saint cranks, outlaw wheelset, 2.5 stick-e nevegals, chromag bars, thomson post.

It's a tank. A rarely used tank.

Any ideas on what it's worth in this crap market? Part it out? :confused:

It is a tough market for sure. From what I have seen going lately, frames are in the ~$1000 range and full bikes are having trouble selling in the ~$2000 range. If it were a large Id sure be tempted!

Good luck with your choice!

High Highline

Jubilee,
Do you know off hand what the geometry is with the 8.75" shock? BB height and head angle w/ the 888? If not no sweat I can research it.

x2 on the above.

I just paid $1100.00 for a 2008 L in new (awesom Granny Smith Green) shape with Thomson post, collar, FD , spare spring and chain guide. I found a good amount of lik frames - a little more worn for $900.00. Fully built with respectable specs - 1850.00 - 2200.00.

Hold on to it and ride it!

Hoo boy...I have no idea. I did talk to DT about it, and he recommended going to the 8.5 shock for bike park use.

Bully: You know, I've had the 'hold onto it' mindset for about 8 months now. Fact is, I'm now doing stuff on a hardtail with 160mm fork that used to be reserved for the big bike. Hardly ever ride the highline anymore, and I'm finding it harder to justify the drive up to Whistler (we have lots of great stuff locally). Thinking it's time to thin the herd...maybe keep the hardtail and get a Delirium or RFX.

Why is it that when I wanted a Highline everyone was selling Spots and when I need a Spot everyone is selling Highlines? I'm beginning to take this personally. Size small Spot, please.

I know of a NOS ('07) small spot hanging in a store near me (Vancouver). I am thinking of snagging it for the GF, but not sure right now. Any interest?

just the frame. i had a totem laying around with only 10 ride on it. built the whole thing up for less than $1,800 with decent parts.. what's crazy is that it was supposed to be just a gravity machine but in the end i've been riding it as a trail bike with much success as long as there's not too much pedaling up hill. maybe the highline was ahead of it's time? fuzzy pics below..

Very nice! I'd say 1800 - 2K is a fair deal. :thumbsup:

Here's mine...
