i'm looking for a bike for my girlfriend who is 5'1". I found a 38-cm Schwinn Sprint Road Bike 10-Speed Lugged Steel on craigslist for $125. I may or may not convert it to a fixie. Not too familiar with the Schwinn Sprint. Is this a good quality schwinn or a cheapo one? How much should this bike be worth? Thanks for any help.
cheap and it's probably to small anyway.

Definitely a cheapo. It may fit her, but you'll have to measure from her honey hole to the floor to be sure (this is your inseam, generally add an inch or two to it to find your working standover height.) Sadly, if you live in SF, you won't likely find much cheaper bikes, from what I understand of the SF bike scene in general. Some markets, like SF, even ***** on wheels goes for at least $100.
