    Price advice on 2012 Giant XTC 29er 1 for a newb

    Hey guys and gals. I used to do alot of hill riding on my old Specialized Hardrock with rigid fork. I put some slicks on that and it's now the daily exercise bike for taking my dog through the neighborhood for his walks.

    Need something for the hills again and looking at an 2012 XTC 29er 1 for under 1k used.

    What would be the going rate for this bike used in good condition with original components?

    I'm looking at getting a new one of those for about $2,000. It gets good reviews. People say the tires are big and heavy and for a carbon frame, it's a heavier carbon.

    With all my research I didn't know there was a KBB for bikes. Thanks

    Probably a better question:

    Is there any better value for $800 new or used for a hardtail 29er with an air fork.?

    Or is the $800 for the AL 2012 Giant XTC 29er 1 a pretty good value.
