Question on bike price..

Postby zfleas » Tue Dec 18, 2012 15:36 pm

Hi everyone!
Got a specialized hard rock pro disc 2011 model lined up.
The guy says he has only done about 150 miles on it and his been in his garage, so is like new and the bike looks like this is true.
It currently has no pedals but I can pick these up and install for £20 ish
Does £250 for the bike sound like a good deal? Seems good to me just want re assuring.
Cheers!
Zac

Very upgradeable entry level hard-tail ... good frame... heavyish, possibly due to the wheels. Suntour fork is ok..... i'd try a cheeky £200

This one? Then yes, fun to ride, decent enough kit including hydraulic brakes, and this spec includes a half-decent fork according to the reviewer. It's worth trying to get it for a bit less, but you may have to wait a while to find something better at that price.

Is it the right size for you? Can you have a quick spin on it to check?
