    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
