    Would anyone here pay $1800 for a used, 1 year old V-tach, or just buy a new VP-Free frame (or equivalent)?

    I'm not selling one, just asking for opinions.

    Maybe I'm stupid - but who makes a v-tach?

    Are you looking to buy or sell? Considering that they are,what, $3100, that may be a reasonable price for a used one. But that is assuming that I would buy a new one for that MSRP.


    They look like a very sweet rig. Just curious why someone would be selling it?

    if it has no cracks, dents, damage, etc...and works fine...yes. You can always repaint a frame to cover dings and scratches...but if its not functionally sound...forget it!

    noel makes a wicked bike...id LOVE to have one!

    Thanks for your input. If it's even a fraction as good as everything I've read, then it should be worth it!

    To heavy, and the owner's tastes have changed. He's gone as big as he's ever going to and doesn't need this much bike anymore.

    The Vtach is sweet but really heavy. Its about a 14 lbs frame with shock and thats the newer ones. The older Vtachs were even heavier.

    Well, it's mine now. I should have it built and weighed in a couple weeks. I'll have to post some porn when it's done. It's the first bike I've had worth taking a picture of.
