Figure a 1 week old used bike is worth 1/2 the retail. Seriously. Don't purchase a bike with any ideas of getting your money out of it later.
On to the bike - You can get a smoking deal from Wheelworld, but you'll be lugging a lot of extra weight around that you won't be using. If you're keen for the adrenaline rush, but lack the skills, it's an option. If you just want to get your feet wet in the dirt, it's overkill.
