    Been looking for a used MTB

    Sup guys. I'm a road rider looking to ride some trails in the colder months to stay in shape and to join my MTB buddies once and a while. I don't ever plan to do any kind of jumps or crazy drop offs just looking to get out in the woods and ride some trails.

    I've been looking on craigslist for the past few months for something cheap to get me out there but there hasn't been much that caught my eye until these Konas.

    Hard Tail - Cinder Cone
    http://southcoast.craigslist.org/bik/4260757996.html

    Full Suspension
    http://providence.craigslist.org/bik/4254958076.html

    The guy doesn't give much for details on the full suspension but I figured I would include it in my post. I originally wanted to keep it under $500 but if the full suspension is worth looking at I might splurge.

    The Cinder Cone is what originally caught my eye as it is more in my price range and I think it would fit me. (I'm 5'8" 30x30 in jeans and usually ride a 18")

    Do any of these look like a good deal? The guy selling the Cinder Cone said he is accepting offers so I could probably get it for a little less.

    The full suspension bike is a downhill bike so no. Without knowing what year and a more specific parts break down on the Cinder Cone it is hard to say how good of a deal it is. Just judging by it having accommodations for both rim and disc brakes it is probably early to mid 2000s.

    alright I was bored

    Looks like a 2005 to me

    I wouldn't say that page is %100 accurate but I'd try to get it lower.

    I'm biased toward hardtail but that cindercone looks nice. Good specs too. Maybe try to knock it down a few dollaz yo.
    The vagueness of the fs bike says stolen to me but I could be wrong. They're both nice tbh but the cindercone seems a lot more practical imo...

    Not really; just an older Stinky Primo - - 2004 most likely, with the stock Super-T. A solid bike but not a good candidate for a roadie's first MTB.

    Thanks for the input guys. Didn't know they had a bicycle blue book... I'm gonna see if the guy will do $300 for the Cinder Cone and take a ride to look at it.
