I'm not a mtn biker. I just need something to go off road on trails that's decent. Performance has this for $539 plus $100 off that plus 10% on top of that. So I'm looking at $400 for this bike. I don't know anything about mongoose. The components don't look horrible... sram x-5. I'm just wondering if it's a good deal or just keep looking on Craigs List.
Thanks.... I just keep looking at Craigs List for the past weeks and it seems every bike listed is maybe a couple of $100 of msrp. Some are listed at msrp and are a few years old. I know there is deals to be had but I haven't found any yet. I guess I'll go get this one...
I don't know how it is where you live. But the majority of people selling there bikes on craigslist in the Atlanta area, I swear are smoking to much crack rock!!!People think just because it says Trek or Gary Fisher, ect, they should be able to sell them for 500-1000 bucks. And what I am talking about in general, is bikes back from the 90's, some of which had ridged forks. Just because they payed that much for them 10-15 years ago, they think there still worth that.
But if you hang out on craigslist alot, deals can be found, you need to act fast to get them.
