    Good job! New to MTB'ing

    Hey guys, found this site when looking at bike reviews. I'm a long time BMXer, and I've decided to switch to a MTB. I don't have a lot of money for a new decent quality bike, so I'm looking at used bikes, mostly on craigslist. I have pretty much made my decision on what I will get. I found a 2012 cannondale trail 5 for $300. Does this seem like a decent price and bike?

    300 seems like it could be a good deal.
    I couldnt find the 2012 value.
    2011 TRAIL 5
    BBB Value:
    $302 (Like-New)
    $287 (Excellent)
    $259 (Good)
    $193 (Fair)

    Thanks for the response. I'm going to check it out tomorrow after work. As long as everything is in good shape I'll be getting it. It seems like the stock parts will be good enough for now. Ill post a pic if/when I pick it up ...
