the parts the arrows are directed at are normal, i dont know about that axle on the forks though.

for what its worth, and given that i cant read greek, the canyon looks to be in the best condition with a pretty good spec for a starter bike, also fox forks require constant service so if youre not comfortable doing lower leg services then id go rockshox every time.

How much money needs for service the fox fork?
You think the ghost dh9000 frame is in good godition ?
And if i buy only the ghost frame is worth 600 euros?
