What grubetown said.

It all boils down to how you plan to use it. The last time I bought a new bike was in 2003. Truth told, the only bikes I've owned that were ridden strictly as they were designed to be ridden were road bikes. Other than that (and design intentions notwithstanding), every bike I've owned has been treated like a hybrid.

So - will the bike you are looking at stand up to what you want to do?

If yes, snag it.

If not, keep looking!

Current bikes: '80's era Cannondale police bike; '97 Diamondback Topanga SE; '03 Schwinn mongrel MTB; '03 Specialized Hard Rock (the wife's)
Past bikes: '97 Giant ATX 840 project bike; '01 Giant TCR1 SL; and a truckload of miscellaneous bikes used up by the kids and grand-kids

Status quo is the mental bastion of the intellectually lethargic...
