I have an ex team Yeti Straight 4 DH bike... hope it's only appreciating in value!
I'm sure the people out there that have an ex Tomac, Palmer, Giove, Herbold, etc bike will be thinking the same thing.

Then again on the other side of the pancake, team riders have top mechanics, their bikes are extremely well maintained, parts replaced when they need to be etc...

Plus normally (well the DH bikes) have special bearings and 1 off frames with rider specific geometry etc. and a lot of them have team only internals in the suspension.

Of current stuff I'd put a Ibis Mojo away in the loft and bring it out a decade or two later. Quality Exotica in my book but knowing my taste they'd be rubbish on the classic market of the future so best ignore me :roll:
