Fuji Traverse 1.3 Hybrid

I found a 2014 traverse 1.3 small locally in used excellent condition for $400. Is this a good deal if it is actually in great condition. Have not seen the bike in person yet, but it looks like it either wasn't or is barely used. This is my first bike and it will be 80% pavement, 20% other. I need a bike where I sit upright due to back issues. And this was one of the only small 15' I could find in the area. I am not opposed to buying new, but I would prefer to spend under 500. I could go up as high as $1k, but would have to wait a couple months.

Note: In my physical condition, I have zero desire to go hardcore mountain biking. And I probably won't do a single ride more than 10-15 miles.

If the bike is in good shape $400 is a fair deal. www.bicyclebluebook.com says it originally cost $830.

Just as a reference point, Performance has a 2015 Traverse 1.3 for $579.00, which is a last year model closeout price. Looks like a nice bike. It's worth checking out.
