    2009 GT Vantara?

    Anyone know anything about this bike? I wasn't able to find any reviews about it at all..
    I found a deal on craigslist for $200, is it worth it?

    here are the specs. Looks like it was originally msrp $400 and sold at PErformance so it could have been sold for less then that because their bikes are always on sale.

    It is pretty much a entry model comfort bike.

    Any thoughts on the deal? Could I do better for $200?

    Are you using the bike for commuting or for fitness? Will you be riding on paved bike trails and roads? The front suspension will add unnecessary weight and decrease efficiency if you don't need it. The bike will be fine for leisurely rides up to about 15 miles. I would go for a solid front fork and more of a performance oriented bike for rides longer than 15 miles.

    mainly for leisurely/commute with buddies. Usually casual 15-20 miles 2 times a week, mainly paved bike trails and city streets. I don't mind the front suspension as I would find it useful in some cases in the city.
