    Buying used bike, need some advice

    Hello everybody, recently I posted an old full suspension mountain bike identifying thread, but seems no body know. So the idea is, to buy a used mountain bike, not new one of course. Yet I haven't got any good offers, but I came across this:

    Although, I think it's kind of nice bike, what do you guys think? Bike is Gary Fisher Mullet.
    Question, is it worth 300$, OR, should I wait a little bit?

    What kind of riding do you want to do?

    If it's in good shape and the fit's what you're looking for, I think goes, stops, shifts, functioning disc brakes and a "real" suspension fork are worth $300.

    Mainly something more than XC, but less than dh/fr. As of winter coming up, I will be riding on snow a lot and trying to learn some new tricks and fall to soft snow.
    Some time ago, I wanted to do something like a fr, but I never found a good locations, and there is not many trails where I live. I would like to try Urban, stairs, some drops, etc

    Go ride it. If you like the fit and it seems in good condition, buy it.
