    Help? Found a possible bike for my gf? Input needed

    Hey guys I been trying to get my gf a bike to ride with me for about two years now, she currently rides my bmx bike I won for selling candy when I was 10. Were at the college age now so that's why I haven't been buying lbs cause the budget is low. Anyways i recently saw this post on craigslist. Should I get it for her? It's the perfect color, and I know Electra is a good brand. The place is a pawn shop, so I'm hoping to just snag a good deal here, most of the time I see it at much higher prices. Anyways, what do you think? I checked it out today and it has hardly any wear on it. Someone just probably needed money! She's about 5'5 for reference btw my gf

    Electra 26" Beach Cruiser

    It will be a fun bike for casual riding. Don't expect speeds much more than 10-12mph. It should fit her height. It will be a huge change from the bmx and she should enjoy it.
