Opinions wanted - Windsor "Cliff 4500"

It's on ebay. Here's a link.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ayphotohosting

A couple of things to keep in mind regarding your much appreciated feedback:

The type of rider that I am: Recreational/fitness. Mostly road/packed trail riding; no racing; certainly no "hard core" off-road stuff.
What I'm looking for: A reliable, low-maintenance bike that doesn't need a lot of TLC.
Budget: $500.00

Thanks in advance.

1. Specialized HardRock from a local bike shop, under $400. and fitted to you.
The no-name you listed above is over $400. with shipping, very entry level components, and a guess as to it's fit and follow up service....as in fageddaboutit.
If looking online and sure of your size, see ibexbikes.com, good bikes, great pricing, and pretty good reputation with service....although, not anything like a local bike shop when your need adjustments, tune, or warranty work.
Ride safe and often!!

I just checked out Windsor's website and they don't offer MTBs in thier product listing. Shy away from a bike a company won't make anymore.
