    Should I buy it?

    Hi,

    Someone offered me a Specialized FSR(full suspension) for $400. It is a couple years old, but only has about 50 miles on it. It has a computer on it already now to. I am not sure which FSR it is though, but from what my step dad and I saw, it is a really nice bike. I rode it around the guys neighborhood, and it felt great. Should I buy it?

    Thanks,
    Jake

    It's only a good deal if the bike fits you properly.

    if it does and it is in that great of shape then hell yes(caveat:I am a firm believer that asking price does NOT equal what you should offer or pay), otherwise maybe give me the number

    edit: whoops! added the NOT
