Hello all,
New member here. Looking to get back into cross country riding and I'm stuck on what to purchase.
I've been looking at a new Merida big 9 200 but I've spotted a 2012 Giant XTC 1 for half the price. The Giant looks to be in excellent condition and has recently been serviced at a shop. Is this Giant worth looking at even though it's 10yrs old?

Thank you
That is really your choice. But I would pay close attention to Craig's List since I once picked up a "used once" Trek HiFi for 1/3rd the new cost. The owner rode across the street, hit the curb and fell down and gave up cycling. While this was a once in a lifetime deal for me, they are out there.
