The price sounds about right for the Spark, which is right at 5 (or possibly 6) years old now. It was certainly a much nicer bike than the Diamondback is today. The Diamondback is overpriced given that new bikes depreciate 45% in the first year.
Yes I was told that the scott is in excellent condition like the db recoil. But just found out that the db is a medium frame and scott is small frame. Im 5’8″ and all my bikes are medium size but never seemed comfortable with medium frame they feel like they are a bit bigger. I had my 29er mtb and road bike fitted to me by my lbs and still not comfortable riding them
Hey, first post here as well. Just so happens that I ran across this. I bought a new 2015 DB Recoil two years ago for a heck of a deal at $475 with intentions of upgrading everything with higher end slightly used or new overstock parts. People said I was crazy, but it is now one of the best riding bikes I have owned and it takes a heck of a beating. The good thing is it was a small investment, and I continued to ride as I upgraded it. It is a good platform. It doesn’t have the best shocks from the factory, but those are easy changes. I would go recoil, however, the one you are looking at is a tad overpriced. See if you can get it for around $400.
Thanks to all for your input. So I went for the spark, overall its in great condition. 1×10 set up. Race face crank, slx shifter/brake, xt rear derailleur and it has this seatpost that you can adjust via remote (dont know the name or brand) i took it for a ride and feel ots the right size for me. And i think it has better component compare to the db. Its a bit dirty though and it need some tlc
