Advice needed - Trek 820

Looking to buy a Trek 820 ST, which is going for $375 CAD.

Any thoughts on the Trek 820 ST?

Trek made a budget mountain bike called 820 for decades so you're really going to have to tell us the year. That sounds like a lot but this year has been bonkers for used bikes. Since a lot of those years were more than 20 ago, you might also be better off in the classic & vintage "what's it worth" subforum.

The bike new from Trek with the lowest end of components is a stately $425. That particular bike is almost like a high end Wal-mart bike and unfortunately a lot of manufacturers are doing that to compete with the bottom. I would spend about $25-100 on that bike used. A vintage version might be less depending on condition I wouldn't use it for mountain biking of any sort but as a complete beater bike to ride very occasionally it is a bike.

So new about $520CD. Used depends on how old and shape.

I had an 820 many years ago and it was an excellent, while inexpensive, bike. At that price it would need to be pristine and fit perfectly though.
