Hi. I joined this forum just to ask this question. Could someone help me out please? I haven't owned a bike in a long time and know almost nothing about bikes. I'm looking to buy the black bike in the craigslist ad below. I've read reviews that this model holds up fairly well for an entry level mountain bike and is fairly solid, BUT it's 12 years old. It looks to be in very good condition and barely ridden. Would $215 be a good price to pay for this make and model? How about $400 for the two? If not, my budget is about $450 and I'll probably buy a new Haro Flightline 1 or 2. I've read that it would be better to buy a good used, older model bike for >$450 than a new one for that price range. Thanks in advance for your time.
