    Ladies Felt Cruiser (craigslist bike)

    http://lafayette.craigslist.org/bik/2335753202.html

    I saw this Craigslist ad and was wondering if this was a decent deal? My girlfriend is in the market for a cruiser and I'm trying to convince her to buy a used bike over a new Wal-Mart bike.

    http://www.walmart.com/ip/Schwinn-Cl...-Bike/15711184

    That's the Wal-Mart bike she was looking at, for comparison.

    I'm not too knowledgeable of bikes myself, so any pointers/tips/recommendations whatever are welcome. Her max budget is $300, but she'd rather not spend over $200... if that's possible.

    Hey, what's up? Fellow southern LA dude here.

    Felt makes some really nice bikes. If I had to choose, I'd take the Felt over a Schwinn.

    Well, is she worried about quality? If so, the Felt bike is the clear winner.

    Thanks for the replies guys, pretty much confirmed my opinion, but I wanted to make sure. I knew Felt made good bikes since I was recently in the market for a bike as well (I went with Trek though). I just wasn't sure if this particular bike was any good. I contacted the seller asking for model year and more pics and she sent both.. it's a 2009.

    Anyway, here are the pics she sent.

    We haven't gotten it yet. She ran into car trouble and spent the money for that instead. I plan on buying it for her though within the next few days.

    Looks good. Wouldn't mind having the man's version myself. This is a bike you can own for years & sell it for what you payed for it.
