Nothing wrong with Balance. It is what it is. Mid level, Taiwanese-made suspension frame from the days when people knew next to nothing about making a suspension frame. Pro-Forx, by the time they were adapted to rear suspension use shown here, were actually owned by Answer and sold as a slightly less expensive alternative to the Manitou forks.

There's some kooky retro value there in that bike. It'd be a fun little project to hump around on for a while. Give it a go if the price is right. 8)

I'd say that's more than fair. I might even start lower, but then you run the risk of insulting them and then wrecking the deal altogether. Certainly don't go higher than 100. :D

Thanks bud,

The waiting for contact to be made has commenced.........

Im pretty good at kicking folk in the stones regarding valuing their stuff,
I sell cars for a living and booting folk in the balls is part of my daily routine.

I like a good haggle I do :lol: :lol:
