Iron Horse MKIII Comp on Craigslist, price adjusted for reality

You might recall that I found an Iron Horse MKIII on the New Haven Craigslist last month being sold for a ridiculous amount of money and it looks like he didn't get any takers because there is a new add, new pictures and a new price. A price that has been adjusted for reality!

Iron Horse MKIII comp full suspension dw-link trail / mountian bike - $1300 (Hamden)

Mint Condition IRON HORSE MKIII COMP with the DW-LINK rear suspension. The frame is an XL (21") with 5” of travel. The bike weighs about 29 pounds. The bike has:
-RockShox Recon 327 Solo Air fork 130mm travel
- RockShox Monarch rear air shock
- SRAM X7 trigger shifters, X7 rear derailleur, and X9 front derailleur
- Avid Juicy 5 hydraulic disc brakes 6"rotors front & rear
-BRAND NEW 2010 Truvativ Firex 3.3 Team crank
- BRAND NEW SRAM PG970 cassette, SRAM PC951 chain with quicklink
-DT Swiss X430 rims with champion 2.0 spokes sealed qr/thru axle hubs
-WTB Weirwolf race folding tires
- Easton EA50 handlebars, stem, and seatpost
-WTB Silverado saddle
-Shimano PD-M540 pedals.
This bike is in great shape, must see it to appreciate it, and it only weighs about 29lbs, incredible for a 5" travel all mountain bike. Paid $2,200 for bike and just had a new drive train installed and this bike was just tuned up at a bike shop. I hate to sell the bike, but it must go to pay for school. Please email me with any questions. $1,300 FIRM!!

On the previous post, a reader commented:
the bike is 1500 brand new never been touched. i wouldnt pay 1000 for his
I have to disagree with the reader, $1300 is the right price for this bike and who ever get's this bike will be getting tremendous bang for the buck! The MKIII is a great trail bike because of that DW Link and that the major reason why I haven't gotten rid of mine for a full susser 29er. Yes, there is the Pivot 429 but that move has been stalled out for now.
