Hi, new here, sorry didn't know where to post this. Looking to get a budget bike ($400 max but preferably ~$200) on craigslist for some fairly serious Colorado single track and slickrock out by Moab. I've been a few times and loved it on borrowed old bikes. 5'11, athletic, 175lb.

On cragslist I found a specialized rockhopper Comp FS for $145.

and a Gary Fisher Tassajara for $325.

The bicycle bluebook values the tassajara a little more although I don't know what year it is. But I'm not sure it's worth twice the price.

Or here's the denver area cragslist if you want to give it a quick skim for other options:


Thanks, I'm not too familiar with bikes yet so I would be very grateful for any advice.
