    Looking to upgrade to full suspension from 02 Tassajara

    I bought my Tassajara new in I think 02. I rode at the time trails in the midwest. I now live in AZ and ride mountain trails and am considering a full suspension bike. I would prefer to just buy used and keep my budget around $1000. I am somewhat new to looking for a quality mountain bike and need some direction. I did run across a Specialized 2010 Pitch bike with disc brakes and they are asking a few hundred more than my budget but I could swing it. I just want input before moving forward.

    I am new to the site so I appreciate the feedback. Let me also state I am still a novice at mountain biking and maybe looking at a full suspension is not the best idea. Not sure there is much I could do to the Tassajara to upgrade it to something more for my newer riding preference.

    A good site for checking the current value of used bikes is

    Is this the bike you are looking at: Listing Detail - Bicycle Blue Book

    If so, I'd say it is way overpriced.

    Wow, thanks for the link. It seems to be the same bike. I am not sure if there were options on that model, but it looks to be almost exact which makes the bike extremely over priced. I will bookmark that site and emailed the seller to see his thoughts.
