This is a fantastic capable bike. It isn't as nice as a modern $5k carbon 29er but it is a heck of a lot better than any new bike you can find for $2500, honestly I don't think you could find something this fast that is new for less than $4k or so. Bike climbs really well, is light, and is a very capable descender. Components are durable, responsive and maintainable. Yeti still sells parts for it.
Unfortunately I pretty much haven't ridden anything but my singlespeed for the past few years, and if anything I'm becoming more set in my ss ways. Time to sell this thing because I only have eyes for my SS and this bike too nice for my lousy kids. It is all tuned and ready to go. I have been setting a bunch of PRs on it because it turns out gears really are faster and easier.
I've added photos I took on my last ride on it: to the top of Mt Washington from Rattlesnake Lake. Lovely day. Photos are looking down on Chester Morse Reservoir.
I got this bike used 4 years ago and rode it in a bunch of endurance events and also in all day rides throughout washington. I figured a well used carbon bike had proven itself strong and it has been good to me.
Except for two weeks this summer my last ride on it was the echo 60 nearly two years ago. It is a sweet bike both climbing and descending and weighs just over 24 pounds with race tires and pedals. Everything but the pedals have plenty of life left in them. Totally fine for raging river and otg on tiger. It is marvelous for Ollalie, especially the chunkier upper sections and it pumps really well on the smooth flowy lower section. This is a bike that likes to be steered with your feet.
Bike has carbon frame, carbon rear triangle, carbon bars, carbon wheels and a dropper post. Is fast and capable and setup as if a reasonable person had cared to do it well (cough). There are some scratches here and there but nothing structural. It is just over 24 pounds with race tires. It is really zippy.
Frame was made in america, has hand laid carbon that is really cool in the sun, frames original retail was $2500.
Fork is fox float32 with 120mm travel. I serviced the lowers last spring, maybe 15 hours on it since then.
Has Shimano XT brakes with nearly new pads, sram x0 shifters and derailleurs (2x10), shimano cassette. King headset, thomson stem, sram x0 crank (175). Low ratio is 22x36 which I used to think I needed for grand ridge.
The wheels are sram rise 60 which originally retailed for $2500. They are light and stiff. Currently rigged with shimano cassette driver but I will include the XD driver too.
Specialized command post dropper seatpost (I think 100mm drop) with yeti titanium saddle. Grips are ergon gs1.
Includes worn xtr pedals, the tires are maxxis aspen in front, thunder burt in the back, I'll include some other tires too (nobby nic.)
For rider fit I'm 6' and 185. If you're around that height its ready to go. I think this would be a great bike for someone who is just getting back into mtb. Easy climbing ratio, really light, climbs well and is a capable descender. You'll be happy for a few years at least until you have a vocabulary and opinion about what you prefer. I found that very few modern bikes feel as good as this one.
You can find lots of positive reviews about this bike on the internets. Pinkbike has a review that's pretty accurate I think.
I'd really prefer to sell this bike in person but I'll take it to a local bike shop of your choice so you can pay to ship if you really want me to.
Let me know if you have any questions or need better pictures.
Oh... I put some SOLAS retro reflective tape onto the top tube so cars could see it when it was on my bike rack at night. There are some strips of it on the wheels too. Is for safety but can be peeled off.
