Howdy all, first post here! I've been looking to replace my 1990's ParkPre and have been on the hunt for a good mountain bike for awhile. I've almost pulled the trigger on a new hardtail Giant/Specialized/Trek a few times now at the local dealers but have hesitated hoping to find a better deal on a used model. The other day I saw a listing for a medium 2008 GT Force 3.0 for $600 which seemed like a pretty good deal on a full suspension bike with hydraulic disc brakes. The seller states it hasn't seen much use and that it still has the original tires on it, albeit they are now dry rotted. An online search for sizing shows I need an 18" seat tube which is supposedly what the medium GT measures out to be. I've also read the forks are junk, not that it will be affecting me much until I get some experience behind the bars. So assuming it is as stated, is $600 a good deal on this bike? Has anybody owned one they'd care to comment on? Thanks for the input!
