FOR SALE : FIREFOX VIPER HARD TAIL
Purchased in June 2007
I've used it from June 2007 until Jan 2010 (when I got my next bike). Recorded usage is 3600km. Unrecorded usage would be about another 2400km.
Total usage must be around 6000km over 30 months.
Bike with following :
NOTE ABOUT FRONT SUSPENSION : The original FF VIper Front Sus. consists of a triple crown fork with stanchion tubes extending right up to the handlebar. Its crappy as hell, and heavy to boot. It also doesn't have any damping adjust. I have installed a brand new RockRider fork. For more details about that, visit this blog entry : Front Fork Replacement
I have personally maintained this bike, and it has never seen the hammer and pliers at any LBS.
Headset is completely cleaned and greased (during fork replacement)
Front and Rear Axles completely disassembled and greased.
Chain is still in very good shape (thanks to regular cleaning and lubrication).
Derailluers and Shifters in good order.
Paint job still good, but it has the usual few scratches here and there.
The whole bike has recently been cleaned, serviced, lubed and is squeaky clean.
Pictures of the bike are at this link :
Here's a teaser photo :
The purchase price was 16,900/-. A new FF Viper (still with crappy front sus, and even bigger, heavier stanchion tubes) is still retailing for about 14,900/- Firefox's website seems down at the moment, so am unable to post a link. Try this link for more general details about this bike :
I'm asking 9,900/- for this, with all the above list of items included. I'm reckoning that list of goodies itself is worth about 3,000/-. Don't come back to me with crap offers. At the price I'm quoting, its still a steal.
The Bike is in Andheri, Mumbai and I would prefer a local sale, unless you can figure out a way of transportation to wherever you are.
only 5 grand lesser than the brand new bike!, noone will bye it for 10 grand.. thats way too much for a 4 yr bike buddy
Frame size 15"- I'd say suitable for heights below 5'7" . I'm 5'10" and always found it to be smaller.
Back in 2007, there wasn't much choice in terms of models and frame sizes. The new Viper is still available in only 15"
