    2004 Jamis Durango SX: Any good?

    A friend has been offered this bike (specs below). I'm a road guy, so I don't know, but is this a decent bike for city riding?
    New, the owner said he paid $850. What's it worth today?
    The catch: the owner is leaving town today, and so a decision has to be reached soon.
    Thanks for your help.

    This seems to be the bike:


    Frame: 7005 triple gauge aluminum

    Fork: Manitou Axel Comp 80mm

    Rims: Alex TD17 disc

    Hubs: Formula Hi-Lo disc

    Spokes: Stainless steel

    Front Derailleur: Shimano Deore

    Rear Derailleur: Shimano Deore

    Shift Levers: Shimano Deore

    Chain: Z-9200

    Crankset: TruVativ 5D

    Cog Set: Shimano HG-50 | 11-32

    Bottom Bracket: TruVativ sealed cartridge taper

    Brakes: Hayes mechanical disc

    Brake Levers: Avid FR-1

    Seatpost: Alloy

    Saddle: WTB Speed V Sport

    Handlebars: ATB Riser

    Stem: Jamis Alloy

    Grips: Kraton dual compound

    Extras: 2 water bottle mounts

    WEIGHT: 27.00 LBS

    I don't know what the guy is asking for it but I would offer 250.00. As for the 27 pounds, that bike would weigh thirty on my scale. I'd love to have the scale the manufacturer is using!
