    Is it worth $260?

    I'm looking into buying a bike to get around, well, everywhere. I found this bike on Craigslist and it seems like it's worth it ($260):

    The components include: Suntour AR deurailers and shifters, Sugino RT cranks, Dia-Compe 500 brakes, Araya rims, Cycle Pro tires and an Avocet seat; for more information, see:

    The other bike I've been looking into is the Ross Superior (http://portland.craigslist.org/wsc/bik/2480173330.html) which is allegedly all original parts and is only $165.

    Are either of these worth the cost? I don't know much about bikes, but I just want something that I can get around Portland on (go up/down hills) for up to 30 miles/day.

    Seems to be a fair price for your area.
    I had a sport and rode it 1500 miles.

    Claw RD hanger, stem shifters, turkey levers, steel crank rings, low end Suntour components. Anywhere but Portland, $260 would be ridiculous. Around here, that bike would be $120 to $150 max. Portland has some unique pricing, so it may be market value there.

    Ross Superior? Pass on that one.
