Good deal? To many miles for the price ? Worth it to just ge a new one ?
I like the price. Don't like the mileage but it has been serviced on regular basis by dealer. Let me know what u think
Don't worry about the mileage. My 2011 XC has 31,000 miles on it now, zero issues, valves were still in spec when I checked them several thousand miles ago. Awesome bike.

That said, I would probably spend the extra few thousand bucks and get a new one, largely for the peace of mind of breaking it in/maintaining it myself -- because I intend to keep this bike for the long term and expect to be putting north of 100,000 miles on it. If you tend to switch out bikes fairly regularly, then don't worry about it.
