    Price check/recommendation on this bike?

    Hey guys,

    First post here. Id like to get some opinions on this setup I found. Normally im one to do hours and hours of research but simply put I unfortunately dont have the time right now- just got a new job and apartment and need something to ride. Im simply looking for any general suggestions and what the bike is worth. I know it is very dependent on my intended usage, etc, but im just looking to get quick evaluation on quality. Here is what the ad states.

    "Im selling my 16"/small hardtail mountain bike for $380. The frame is very strong well made. I am 5'11" and enjoyed riding this bike because it is so flickable and easy to maneuver. The specs on the bike are as follows:

    -White 16" Leader LD 516-H hardtail (Welcome | Leader Bike LLC)
    -Manitou black elite 120mm travel front fork
    -Deore disc hubs with 26" white sun rims king pin(very wide and strong)
    -Avid cable disc brakes 6" front and rear (low maintenance and amazing stopping power)
    -Shimano deore lx drivetrain 27 spd
    -Kenda Nevegal Stick-e 2.35 front and rear
    -Comes with azonic platform pedals and WTB seat
    -Brand new cables and housings

    The bike is very solid and mechanically sound."

    Any input is appreciated. Thanks!

    Sounds a little high to me - I don't even see any mtbs on their website, but most of their other complete bikes are pretty low-priced. Tough to say without seeing it or having any detail, but I would think somewhere under $300 if everything is in really good condition.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with that bike, especially for under $400.00.
    I've built up 2 Access/Leader frames over the past few years. They're fine frames. The components on it seem fairly solid. Be aware that it is a fairly small frame, and would have most likely been a challenge for the original owner (who said he was 5'11")

    Good luck

    Cmdrpiffle, thanks for the comments.

    Yeah, im aware the size is pretty small, im 5'9 but have extremely short legs so I think it should fit me okay.

    I would say $300 is reasonable if everything is in working condition.
