Can anyone tell me about this? I'm looking for a bike for my girlfriend.
Listed for $75.
Thanks for looking
Thats a really low end bike. Cottered crank, steel rims, stem shifters, turkey levers, various steel components, etc. On top of that the bike needs some minor TLC.
Unless you are in a super hot market, I would keep looking.

For that price, it looks good and if it rolls.. why not ? ! Appears med. or maybe even large for a lady's. ANYWAY, DO be sure that she LIKES it. NOTHING is of a bigger consideration other than fit and fuction more than LIKING (females especially)
Sure you can search forever and find one for $69.95 ? but why ?
Maybe you can find a bike for $130 but will she like it more ? (or less)
If the Gal likes Drop Bars, go for it. One thing can be said about obtaining bikes fo the women in my life is that they aren't as pretentious or snobbish as guys are with bikes. We fancy ourselves as racers and as such can be convinced to buy "anything".
It's not an overly economy bike. Make sure it shifts & the wheels seem straight.
I have a Schwinn that looks quite like it. Not it but I ride it some, works fine.
Gotcha, thanks for the help guys. I have my eye on a Miyata 310 right now for her...
What you say about men and women and bikes is so true. haha... I can relate that with my rock climbing gear.
