    Trek Fuel Ex 5!!! $600

    at my local bike shop they have this bike, they have only had it for about 3-4 months and ive always had my eye on it since befor i even bought my hardtail trek 4300 last year. for some reason about 5 bikes in the shop have been marked down ALOT. this bike was normally priced about 1200 and is now marked down 50%!!!!
    so that means this full suspension bike is only $600.
    like i said i just bought a trek 4300 last year and decked it out a bit, but the bike ive had my eye on for a while is 50% off. i couldnt believe it. even though i just bought an expensive bike, i am seriously considering buying this bike. i dont go on too many tought trails with 10 foot jumps and whatnot, but i go on some pretty rootsy and rocky trails with some bike drop offs. is it work it? i ride on the street sometimes, and my friends and i enjoy screwing around bunny hopping on everything. if i were to take money out of the bank to buy this would it be worth it considering i just bought a nice bike last year? are these really heavy bikes?
    all i gotta say is that the bike is sexy and so cheap

    so whats your guys two cents on this idea?

    My personal opinion is that you can never beat ebay for the best possible deals, but hey, if you want it and have the money, why not?

    What year is it? I'd do it if it is an 06 or newer. Everyone is raving about how the Fuels have really performed well for this year. I understand that because of the improvements in their FS line it seems that Trek is no longer "stuck" in regards to their mtn line. The Remedy is supposed to be the "new remedy" as well.. If I had the money, I'd probably do it.
