    Advice on a bike I'm looking at buying

    I am looking at buying this bike:
    GT Zaskar Mountainbike Large shockfork hydrodisc WTB wheels carbonbar

    i am new to mountain biking and I plan to do some city biking but mostly offroad biking. I want your expert opinions on whether or not this is a good buy. This bike is at the top of my price range and I am not seeing much else in my price range.

    What do you think?

    thanks ahead of time for your help.

    Judging for the parts spec (particularly the ESP 9.0) it is at least 8 or so years old. In that case, condition is EVERYTHING.
    15mm is a second-best solution to a problem that was already solved.

    Yeah and I don't think it's in the greatest condition. I am actually leaning towards this one: CANNONDALE CAAD-2 MTN BIKE

    The 19.5" frame will probably fit me better (6'0", 32" pant length). But the owner doesn't know how old it is so that kinda concerns me. Is this style of bike pretty durable/reliable? Is it worth the price?
