2008 Fuji Tahoe Comp 29er?

Hi all!

I am considering buying a 2008 Fuji Tahoe Comp 29er. There is one for sale in town for $500 and it is in excellent condition.

Is this a good deal for this bike?

Just to give you a little background, I haven't done any mountain biking for quite a few years. Before college I used to go regularly, but during and since I have not at all. My thought is I will be using the bike to ride around town fairly regularly - mostly on the road. I would also like to take it down a few trails nearby as the greenbelts in Austin are awesome. Is a 29er right for me?

Thanks all!

well its a deal, but its not a great deal. they are only 900 new. Im sure if you search craigslist everyday on and off for about a week or two you will find better deals. Also it would be a great bike to commute with. i commuted on a 29er for about a year.. they will roll right over pot hole and cracks, you will go over the curb and barley even feel it. so yeah to the 29er part. but its that a great deal.

Thanks, I've been looking for awhile and it seems like all the real good deals get scooped up really quickly. I'll keep looking - might see if I can haggle him down to $400 range.

So, I went out to take a look at it yesterday. Seemed to be a great fit and the bike looked like it was new. Come to find out, it's actually the 2009 model.

I talked to him to $460 and bought it. Looks like it's going to be a great bike!
