Need help on Bike Purchase decision - help 2010 Cannondale Quick 4 = $400

Hi, my wife and I are trying to get back into biking. We will be mostly on paved rail trails, so I was thinking a Hybrid. I was going to buy new, but saw a 2010 Cannondale Quick 4 with 200 miles on it for $400. Also the size is XL, I am 5'11, would that be to big? When I was at the bike shop, the person said I would take a trek 7.2 in 20", or maybe 22"..

Any advise would be really appreciated. thanks

I'm 6"1" and ride a XL Quick. That being said, the frame still feels a bit cramped. About the only way you can tell us to take a thorough test ride. Any questions in your mind at that point should probably be directed to a LBS.
Good luck!

I love the Quick series. I have a Quick 3. Give it a ride, it may not be too big.
