Little info. bought the frame off ebay just before summer. Always wanted a Zaskar and got this. There is paint flaking off at some small areas, but no dings and dents. I was going to get the frame stripped but built it up with mostly new parts and rode it around town because I'm impatient and who could leave a half done bike when the weather is sunny? Never take it off road properly, just a couple of canal towpaths.
I'm selling it because I want a FS bike, and a friend of mine is selling a Stumpjumper M4 from 2004 but I need some cash!
I'm thinking that most people new to the game aim at around Â£500 and end up with a Hardrock or Avalanche. Here's a chance to get (what I think) is a decent deal. If I'm way off the mark then let me know, and I'll plonk it on ebay regardless! :p
thanks for looking!
