    I see tandem mtn bikes do the dual brake thing because they are HEAVY but kind of seems overkill in your situation.

    They still think it is worth a good bit of money. I think you would have a very hard time finding somebody to pay that for one though.

    That is disc model but close enough and I'd say pretty spot on for value. It comes down to though can you find anything better for the money?

    New you can forget full suspension. You pretty much need to double your budget to get a decent new full suspension. You can find a pretty good hardtail new for $1k though. With hardtails the name...

    Its a good starter bike and should last you a while. Should climb better than your CX bike despite it's weight because it is geared much lower.

    I can't find that exact model/year on that site but $500 is an insane amount for that bike. Maybe $200 if it is in really good shape.

    Some light knee and/or elbow pads certainly wouldn't hurt. I keep thinking about picking up a pair of the gform knee pads myself.
