K2 Razorback RS

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Mountain Bike Hash Forum : One Thread

I'm thinking of buying a k2 Razorback frame with a noleen mega air shock. I'm paying 140 for the frame, bottom bracket, stem, fr der'r, and seat post. Are there any issues about a 180# guy riding that bike? Are there any issues about the frame?.. bad's.. goods.. potential problems? Thanks.

Please, send me a photo of your k2 bike. How much was your bike?

That sounds like a good deal, but the Noleen shock is notoriously flimsy and at some point you are going to want to replace it. Guaranteed- those things blow out with frightening regularity. If you are referring to the rear shock, then the unfortunate thing is that this is harder to do than it sounds. There is only one other shock that will adapt to that frame, and the turnaround time on repairs is not very good unless you live near a K2 dealer, which there arent in my town.
