    help on used bike

    I'm looking to upgrade from my 17 year old GF no suspension tassajara and have found a local bike for sale and am looking for some opinions. Its a 2007 Specialized Enduro Elite listed as like new. They are asking $1000. Good candidate, price? Anything specific to look for on this one if I give it a test ride?

    Thanks

    Don't pay the asking price offer half wait for reaponse and go from there you can pick one up for cheaper. Answering you as I noticed no one had ansewered and people should atleast give a response and try be some what helpful. Sorry you havnt got any other more thorough responses.

    if it is listed as like new, flip the bike around to see if there is dirt under the bike.

    Often the most expensive things are the rims/gears/brakes.

    -check to see if the rims are straight
    -shift the gears to see if it sticks
    -brakes, don't need to say much cos you can look at 100-200 on a mid end Avid 5

    I assume that it is disc brakes, XT?
