Is this a good deal/worth it?

Hi all, I'm new here, and I have a question about a bike that I can buy from ING Direct's store.
I can get the Marin Bobcat Trail for 296.25

here are the specs from the website:


Frame:
7000 Series Butted Alumminum with edge top and down tubes, disc mounts

Fork:
Spinner Grind AC 323, 80mm of travel and preloaded adjustment

Shifters:
Shimano Acera

Brakes:
Hayes MX-2 XC Mechanical Disc, WIth new V6, 6" rotors


Front Derailleur:
Shimano T300

Rear Derailleur:
Shimano Acera

Hubs:
Shimano Disc, 32-hole

Rims:
Alex TD-20, Disc 32-hole, Double Wall

Crankset:
TruVativ X-Flow, 42/34/24

I think the MSRP is $490. What do you guys think, should i get it at the discounted price? Thanks

The last year Marin built that one was '03, for $429 MSRP. If that bike's still "brand new", then maybe $300, but honestly, I'd save a little more for a better bike, with better components....

Newbies should NEVER purchase a bike online. Go to a bike shop and get fitted. I don't care how much money you "save" it won't do you any good if the bike isn't comfortable to ride
