I agree it’s a little strange, but a crank length different from whatever he currently has (or dual-hole) and a seat upgrade to 2009/2010 could be enough to push a crazy person in that direction, assuming they had high hopes for unloading the other components
You pretty much nailed it. Saw a great deal and decided to go for it.
I get to keep a pair of 165/137 dual hole cranks, a new seat, some pedals and a post all for just over $100 (assuming I get what I ask for the frame and wheel)
If the frame does not sell I will see if I can put a smallish 26" wheel in there for an uberlight XC machine. If the wheel does not sell I can keep it to easily just do a wheel swap for when I might want to go 24". If neither sell I have a top of the line 24" MUni. I will probably set these aside and keep them in new condition until either they sell or summer time comes and I decide I really need a light XCmobile or a 24 for playing around on the flin-flon rocks.
I will entertain offers but as you can tell I am not desperate to get rid of them.
