Treks make some nice bikes but before you invest in a used bike, I suggest going to all you local shops and test ride as many bikes in the same price range as a New 4300.
Through the buying/test riding experience make note of two things. FIT, i.e. how the bikes 'feel', the size of the frame, and the position of the seat and handlebars.
Secondly, the level of components. What type of fork, what type of shifters, derailleurs ....etc.
Then when you check out the used bike, you'll have a basic understanding of what you are looking for.
