    Is this a good first purchase, for the asking price?

    I'm looking at an '09 Gary Fisher Wahoo for about $575 taxes in. It was listed in the store at $550 but they offered to take it down to $489 plus taxes.

    I would have figured they would try to get rid of it for about $400 considering it's a 2009 and the 2012s are around the corner
    After skimming some of these threads, I'm beginning to wonder if I could find a better deal or maybe get a better deal on this bike itself?



    Basically I want to use it for riding in the suburbs and doing some trails, in a ratio of 70/30.
    I don't want a hybrid as I find the wheels to be a bit too thin for my liking.

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks.


    off topic, where is LHS and what does the acronym stand for?
    Saw it a few times but not in full name. lol

    My 2012 Wahoo 29er was ~$610 out the door of the Trek Store.
    I love my 29er and i have had it on the trails a few times already and plan to use it around town as well.

    That definitely puts things into perspective for me.
    I guess $575 out the door for an '09 is a bit up there. lol
