    2008 Fetish Cycles Discipline - $450 - Good Buy?

    Hello - new here. I'm getting back into Mtn. Biking after about 10 yrs. I want to ride trails, mining pits, woods, etc. And I have a buddy who's super into biking and I wouldn't mind being able to hang with him somewhat. I'm looking for a good decent bike for around $500 or so. I have a chance to buy a 2008 Fetish Cycles Discipline for $450. Wondering if some of you guys think it's a good deal. Here's the specs:

    2008 Fetish Cycles Discipline double butted aluminum frame
    Manitou Axle comp 100mm travel fork
    Shimano LX rear derailleur
    Shimano Deore front derailleur
    Truvativ Iso Flow cranks 22/32/44
    Truvativ cartridge bottom bracket
    Shimano HG50 9-Speed Cassette 11-32
    Shimano HG53 9-Speed chain
    Shimano Deore 9 speed shifters
    Cane Creek headset
    Alloy 30mm rise aluminum handlebars
    Alloy clamp-on 7deg rise aluminum stem
    Alloy seat post
    Tektro brake levers
    Hayes MX4 Mechanical w/ 160mm rotors
    Pivit disc wheels with 14g stainless steel spokes and Weinmann XTB double wall rims
    Velo saddle
    Kenda Komodo 2.1 tires

    OR any other suggestions on bikes? Any help would be appreciated. Also, to note, I'm 6'3" and 275 lbs. Thanks.
    Here's a pic of the bike.

    Yeah, that's a great spec for the coin.

    Do you have a choice of sizes and can you try before you buy to ensure a proper fit?

    Sounds like a good deal. I just built up the frame and took it off a few urban 3-4ft drops. Frame is holding up well, but I am a stick at 150lb. Still needing to hit the trails, hopefully mud season will be quick.
