Im looking at a new flightline sport for 480 + tax
or a friends used escape 8.2 (i thnk its an 06) for 300 maybe 250.

to my knowledge the escape looks to be in good condition.


I like riding the escape, but it feels kind of heavy, but I think the flightline only shaves a couple pounds. so idk. How well do these bikes hold up over the years.

It all depends on your intended riding and style. The Escapes are more capable of abuse vs the lighter weight of the Flightline. Either will probably hold up to most normal riding. With new you also get a warranty-a big plus in my thinking.
Ultimately, which bike feels best to you and what are you comfortable spending? It always comes down to these 2 little points.

Buy what you'll ride and have fun! That's what it's all about
