schwinn johnny g spinning bike in bad condition. need advice.
okay, i'm an idiot. i blindly bought a schwinn johnny g spinning bike on craigslist from a guy who seemed fully honest. he said the bike had some issues with the paint but worked "flawlessly."
he was charging 170.00. he brought the bike to my house at night, i rode it for 3 minutes (STUPID!), paid him, and he left.
when i woke up, i was dismayed to see the bike was covered in rust. i tried to get some of the rust off and succeeded a bit. there is rust on the pedals, the flywheel, the brake cable/springs, the floor levelers, underneath the handlebar plastic coating, and on all the bolts. it's BAD.
to make matters worse, when sitting on the bike, the ride is reasonably smooth but noisy with clicking noises.
however, when standing, it CLUNKS with each revolution.
any suggestions on what to do? i'm miserable and could kick myself for trusting the seller.
i live in san mateo county (near san francisco).
