    newb help please

    I'm a newb but last night found a 2011 anthem x2 for what I thought was a decent price. 1500.

    I'm not up to par on bikes but from what I've read. Its a well equipped bike.fox shocks, deore etc. Seems like lower end shim no hydro brakes (m445) And I like the 26inch feel.
    Here's the link: won't let me post link

    giant-bicycles.com/en-us/bikes/model/anthem.x2/7319/44087/#specifications]Anthem]Anthem]Anthem X2 (2011) - Bikes | Giant Bicycles | United States

    The bike is brand new just old stock. Is the price right?
    Or should I be jumpin on a 2013 x4 29er (lower spec components) but same price.

    Thanks for your time.

    Many Giant dealers I know offer lifetime tune up so be sure to discuss about it before you pay. Ask them to fit you on the right size bike, as well as suspension set up, some shop would swap out parts like stems or handlebar for you so during fitting if that's the issue ask if they'd do that for you. I think it's a pretty good deal.
