I'm new to the forum but have been doing a lots of research on it for the past month. I've owned 2 bikes in my life, a Mongoose Switchback (stolen) purchased when I was 15 (I'm now30) and and Ironhorse 1.3 I just walked into a D!cks and purchased 5 years ago b/c it was on sale and I needed a bike. Didn't know squat about sizing (it was too small), or bikes in general and still don't.
I found a seller and was looking for feedback on if this is a good deal or not@ $1550. Plan on picking this up Saturday.
First thing: Anyone know what the base model of the Pivot Mach 5 is? Found a site that prices used bikes but am uncertain what model this is, whether XT, SLX ect. Establishing the base will help determine the minimum price
What do I need to look for when inspecting the bike for damage or any other important questions to ask the seller?
