    need opinions

    As an entry level mt. bike, should I pull the trigger on this Yukon? He's asking $200, might be able to get him a little lower b/c he's been trying to sell it for 7-8 months now. Good deal for this bike?

    His ad says:
    2006 Giant Yukon Mnt. Bike. Great condition, well maintained and only light trail use.

    I wouldn't recommend shooting a bike. It's constructed mostly of metal - which could cause a ricochet.

    I'm pretty sure the guy who owns it would be pissed as well.

    I figure it'd be safer/cheaper than shooting my g/f. I keed. I keed. I would never shoot a bike.

    I would like to add that the bike looks like a "women specific" ride.

    Haha. Goes to show how much I know about mt. bikes. Thanks for pointing that out. I still might buy it for target practice.

    I think that is the men's version for 06. I found this store that has one and it doesn't say it is a ladies frame.

    it looks like you could get it new for the same price?

    Ah. Ok. Thanks, Cannondaler. I have my eye on a Cannondale F400 too, which I would rather have, but if it falls through I still might consider the Yukon. I'm mostly on the road, but thought it would be fun to get a little muddy and I didn't want to drop a lot of cash. So, this one still might work out.

    200$ or less vs 500$? not the same price in my world.

    Definitely go with the cannondale if you can.

    Not that I'm partial to Cannondales or anything.

    Woohoo. I picked up the c-dale f400 today. Love it! Came with 2 sets of disc wheels: one set of knobbies and one set of slicks. Pictures coming soon.

    Couple of quick pics. Better ones to come.

    Cannondale f400 L. Came with 2 sets of wheels: sun ryhno lites w/ knobbies and Sun Black eye w/ slicks both with Shimano Deore hubs. Mixed sram x7 and shimano components. TruVativ Isoflow crankset. Not a fan of the saddle and prolly gonna replace it.

    Took it for a ride with the slicks on this evening. Fun stuff. Look fwd. to getting it on the trails.

    Definitely needs a bigger saddle.

    Nice ride. Headshock bikes always look nice and clean to me.
