Ya'll Said Buy Used Not X-mart--Is this an alright bike?
I am looking to buy a decent bike for my g-friend who has a Royce Union now and I'm afraid to take her on the local trail riding that! I've been looking around and have come across someone selling a 2005 GT Avalanche 2.0 for $350. It has Deore rear, Suntour Xcc-322 front der, rock shox Judy fork, shimano st-ef29 8 spd shifters, tektro linear pull brakes, truativ isoflow crankset, Tioga extreme front tires, and Tioga XC rear, WTB saddle. Nothing really outstanding, but nothing too sucky either right? Is this a decent price for a LIKE NEW(I checked it out and it's in mint condition--I don't think he rode it much)bike? It's still an older model, so I was thinking $350 might be kinda steep, but I don't know. It's in MINT condition as I said, so I'm not sure what to do.
