I have a chance to buy a S/H 2017 Pivot Shuttle at a price I can almost afford, but I am nervous about the resale value. Can anyone advise me what was changed in subsequent releases or offer advice on what to watch for specific to that model?

I have bought quite a few S/H eMTB's now so my query is more related to that model rather than buying S/H generally, and my worry is that since the industry is changing so fast is 2017 'too old'?

Any opinions welcome!

I don't believe the bike has fundamentally changed since its release - the software on the motor will have changed, but if the owner has updated it not a problem, and again you can do that yourself via the E-Tube app.

You should ask the seller to log on to the app when you are present, as you can run a health check of the Shimano System on the app, telling you if any issues, and how many charge cycles the battery has had.

I think the only thing that may have changed is the brake and tyre spec, I seem to rmeber some confusion as to the spec on these as some press bikes had different brakes?

Anyway plenty of info here:

I’ve just bought the Shuttle from a dealer about 6 weeks ago.
The tyres are:

F Minion DHF exo dual compound
R Minion DHF2 exo maxx Terra

Brakes are the 4 pot MT8010 with MT8000 XT levers.

Everything else is the same is the original released spec.

I’ve just seen a used one with only 170 miles on it with £3700 off the original price. It has upgrades...kashima post, Schwalbe rubber and Hope brakes I think?

For what it’s worth, I’m totally buzzing with mine. I’ve swapped the front tyre to a shorty DD maxxi Grip and it’s sorted 👌🏼

Check the motor stuff as previous poster advised.
If it’s nearly new then ask a LBS if they could check it over?
