I'm sure this is a great xc rig and you can't argue w/the build (nice!) but I wonder how the resale value is? has anyone tried to re-sell one?

Regardless, it's great to finally see a nice carbon hardtail at a realistic price!

They have been on sale for at least 2 weeks, perhaps even the whole month. They did/are doing a carbon sale. The Phantom frame is being sold for $100.00 less also.

I just ordered one last week. Should be coming in tonight!

I'm sure setting expectations on resale value of the whole bike is sheit... as well as the frame alone.

My plan is to ride/race the frame to the ground for a year or two and then go with a Ti frame. The parts alone are worth more than the price they sell at even if the parts are old stock and they just want to get rid of them (I'm estimating about 2 years old).

Will get a report together on how the rig rides...

Who buys an internet retailer mountain bike with an eye towards the resale value?! BTW, I really wish I had seen these before I built up my Air9 as it looks like a darn nice ride and I've been less than impressed by the whole 29'r "revolution".
