How much would it cost to post to New Zealand?

Just because it has $200 worth of upgrades doesn't mean someone would want to pay heaps more for them.

I'd be just as happy with an alloy seatpost, nimbus frame and foam KH seat.

Anyway thanks. I'm not really interested as I'm guessing postage would be far to much.

Without looking it up, my guess would be 100-200 bucks US.

Oh, and just because someone put $200 worth of upgrades into it, doesn't mean they're gonna sell it for stock price or even $200 less just because someone else doesn't care what they ride on. I personally like having stuff that doesn't break. Less chance of being 10 miles into woods and having to walk back.

I can understand you wanting to get the most money back on this uni which is pretty nice- but you face the same problem that everyone did when they bought the 05/06 kh- the fact that the hub and cranks are heavy in comparison to the ISIS, and have the tendancy to bend like butter. Add to this the expense of getting replacement cranks (have to get the same weak ones as there are no alternatives) and you've got a bit of a lemon. I'm facing the same problem with my 19 where the cranks are bent almost beyond use- i don't want to get expensive replacements because the same will happen, and an upgrade to a dif. hub and cranks set is beyond me. I'm stuck in the wilderness it weems with trials ui to ride.
Best of luck anyway- the rest of your ride seems really nice.
