I'm considering bidding on this soon-to-end bike auction, but I don't know a lot about bikes, so I was hoping someone here might give me some advise on whether or not to persue. Thanks!

The seller apparently knows very little about bikes. That is certainly not a 58cm frame. More like a 50cm. It's a 14 speed bike as well. If it fits you (are you 5'4" to 5'8"?), it's a reasonable deal if you get it for under $200. I recently bought a very similar bike on Ebay for $200 though it was upgraded with RSX brifters.
I thought it looked a bit small... glad I checked before speeding up there to see it in person before the auction ends. Thanks a lot!

The ad states that's a 10-spd. bike. I count 6 cogs - making it a 12-spd. I wonder what else they got wrong...? And that's a pretty high price.
I'd say more but the forum software is badly broken at present.

The OP says "I don't know a lot about bikes".
I would not be surprised if the OP and the seller are actually the same person.
