He basically rode it everyday for a couple years. Is it shot or "should" it be trouble free for many miles to go? I'm trying to find something to do a couple week trip to Yellowstone etc on this summer. I'll do it on my Ninja if I have to but.....don't really want to
Dude I got a 2000 with 11,000 miles in perfect condition for $3600
The corbin saddle, carbon vance and hines, and helibars to boot.
When it comes to buying bikes I keep $ at home ready to go at a moments notice.
But you did good and your bike should last you for many miles.
From my bicycle wrenching days over tightening the head bearings makes the steering notchy. Check to see if the front is squared off.
