    buying K2 ZED 4.0 need help!!!

    hey guys.. i'm looking to get into mountain biking this year.. decided to start looking around for a good deal on craigslist..

    I want to find something that's cheap enough to where if I find out I don't stick with it im happy with still owning the bike for the amount I ride it. But good enough to give me a good go at it and hold up as well.

    this is what I found:

    ------------------------------------------------

    This Mountain Bike was bought in 2010 , its a 2009 bike, Its Medium Frame for a male or female from 5'4' to 5'11'', weight 130-200
    Its a very lightweight, Hardtail Frame
    K2 ZED 4.0 Hardtail Mountain bike

    K2 ZED 4.0 Hardtail Mountain bike
    Tuned up and ready to go
    Size- Medium
    Tires: WTB Motoraptor 2.14 49/52
    Brakes: Shimano
    Suspension: Tenneco Marzocchi
    Fork: Tenneco Marzocchi Rebound
    GearShifter: Shimano Deore Gear Shifter
    Shimano WH-MSOS Spokes

    Shimano Mountain sport wheels


    Aftermarket Clipless Pedals.
    Aftermarket Handlebar Grips
    Mechanical Disk Brakes
    Note - the right gear shift indicator doesn't work - But- the gears ,chains, are 100% functional

    Well maintained with consistent Tuneup

    here are pictures he posted:

    I can't seem to find much about this actual bike (2009 K2 ZED 4.0) i can find earlier or later versions of it.. or even the 1.0 , 2.0 3.0 4.4 etc. but can't seem to find exactly what this is worth or if the components are decent enough. But i do find some 4.0 newer and olders that are around $500-$700

    The guy wants $185 firm

    I need some experts to help me out and let me know if its a good deal.. or if i can buy this brand new for $220 and I should just move on and keep looking!

    Thanks guys

    It's a 2008, sold through Performance bike. MSRP is probably around $700.

    If it's in good shape and it fits you, it's an OK price.

    Personally, I'd go for something like this (assuming it fits)

    2006 Iron Horse Maverick SE

    Then spend the $80 and get a pro tuneup.

    From the pictures, it looks like it has some decent parts on it. If it fits, go for it

    If you're six foot, go for the Iron Horse. Similar MSRP, similar parts, better fit and cheaper right now.
