Everyone throw in their $ .02 please I kinda want to snatch this up before someone else buys it.

His asking is $400 I was thinking of offering $250ish.

50 bucks.

it's got V-brakes!?!

I paid $550.00 for a 2008 STP that was never ridden. That bike there is YEARS old. STP's usually go for pretty cheap. I'd pass on that bike.

STP 3 is the very lowest model. The frame is built with lower quality tubing.
You should be able to find one BRAND NEW for about $350.

If you really wanted it, it's worth about $150-$200.

225 at most.

I got my mint-condition (literally) 2007 STP1 for 400 SHIPPED. It was literally PERFECT.

I love the geo on my stp. Great aggressive trail bike, decent jumper and street rig. Works as advertised.

I even have a 430mm seatpost on it so I can climb.

Are most of the parts stock? Or has he used all the good parts to put on another bike?

I know the STP 3 comes with the lowest spec but if it's got V Brakes it's either very old or was potentially purchased relatively cheap as a parts donor for another bike!!!

And to whoever said the frame was lower quality...not true, the frames are the same throughout the STP range apart from coming in two different sizes.

Just do your research and make sure he hasn't transferred the ****ty parts from a cheap XC hardtail onto that, then you're pretty much just buying it for frame value (STP frames I think are somewhere around $150 -$250Au 2nd hand, the latter being for spanking new ones)
