Need advice on buying a MTB (regarding price)
Recently I've started taking a liking to cycling so I decided the time has come for a purchase of my own (I used my brother's bike up until now).
I am looking for a bike to use in the city (full of potholes) for commuting and some off-road, nothing extreme though, just some dirt roads, maybe a few hill climbs.
On the advice of a friend of mine he recommended a Scott MC 30(i think it is the 2006 model) which he found second-hand for 850Euro, in good shape, with these specs:
Front Fork: Fox talas RL 120 mm,
LX line: pedals LX , hidraulic brakes LX, dual control levers LX
Rear shifter: XTR
And a picture:
What I am would like to know is would the bike be worth this price? (the year of the bike is not mentioned but I did read it can be as old as 2006, and as I do not know how bikes value deteriorate over time I decided to post here and look for advice)
