    Lotus Road Bike

    Is it worth it? I could pick it up and not have to pay shipping.

    I would just bid on it and see what happens. Nice bike, nice Tange Champion tubing, Cyclone components. A lot to like there, but $325.00 I feel is a little steep. It is in apparently nice condition though.

    That's $360 with shipping (assuming you are the only bidder). It's a real nice bike but I would look for a better deal.

    If that bike came up for sale in my area for $275, I would give it some thought. Add the shipping on top, and I would be looking elsewhere. Is it close enough for local pick-up or a facilitator to help-out?
    Half of the time I fear I may not know what the hell Iím doing; the other half, Iím sure of it.

    It's the closest you can get to flying.

    I don't think it is ready for the open road yet as the seller says. If I was buying it it would need to tubes,tires,cables,brakes and re-greasing. As it sits I would pay $200, but if it a must have and you can pick it up, I would not let it get away for $275.
