Someone wants to sell me an enduro s works bike that is about 3-5 years old (he said he doesn't remember exactly when he got it). It has lots of little scratches and there is wear showing on it. I like mountain biking, though I've never used a bike in this league. He wants to sell it to me for $1,200.
1. Can anyone give me an idea if this is a good bike for this amount of money?
2. Is there a way for me to determine which year this bike was sold?
The label on it reads:
M5 double butted aluminum
