    2004 vortex frame, $1250, good deal?

    Is $1250 a good deal for a 2004 Vortex frame?
    I'm guessing 2000-2500 miles on it. No visible defects or damage.
    Thx. -j

    Thanks Juan - Sorry - I can't give you the name, and it is not a 59... But thanks for the answer. I think you have told me everything I need to know about it.
    Take it easy.

    Stay away from it ...

    I have read various times in this forum and people were complaining that this frame had stability problem. It wobbled in high speed. I hope you haven't bought this frame yet.

    If there is a wobble, it's probably not due to the frame, unless it was crashed and is somehow out of alignment, which is touch to do on a 6/4 ti frame Maybe the headseat has problems? Mine is perfectly stable. I can go around corners with no hands and no wobble.

    I would inquire into the fork! My Vortex came with an Ouzo Pro and the ride is awesome! I don't know how the in-house lightspeed forks compare.

    Do be aware that Litespeed's warranty only applies to the original purchaser! But for $1,250, I don't think it really matters.
