But of you rephrase it 'would you buy good condition 2008 specialized xc comp for £350' then no-one will bat an eyelid - and you'll likely get some opinons.

I'd give him a single unused tampon, a caged squirrel, a winged horse and half a packet of lockets for it.

Is that the silver FSR xc comp with the shimano groupset, tora fork, x fusion shock and hayes stroker ride brakes? I had one of those. £900 when new. Was a great bike until some **** nicked it.

Does it fit? Ask for a test ride.
