My wife's Jamis Trail-X 1.0 was $325.00 and it's from a LBS (local bicycle shop) and set up to "FIT" her, like Jerry stated, save yourself the hassle and headache of a E-Bay purchase. How can you know the bike well "FIT" you or your wife over E-Bay?? There are different frame sizes and geometries, ect. and it's great to get to "test ride" different brands of the same style or differnet at your LBS. It's WORTH some bucks to know that your bicycles, FIT and FUNCTION properly more than "saving a few bucks", I learned this from experiance, (started on a X-Mart Roadmaster MTB, almost got killed when the handlebars came lose on the way home down a steep hill
) JMHO, YMMV.
Take care, RIDE SAFE, have FUN!
