1980's US Raleigh Olympian, fixed gear in Korea
I have a Surly Disc LHT but I want to try a fixie to fool around with around town, and not get too upset if it gets stolen.
I live in Korea and the expats who leave always seem to overprice their bikes when they leave.
For 350 dollars, how good of a deal is this from Craig's List Seoul? The seller is about an hour away by train.

The previous owner converted it into a fixie and put on some nicer drop bars and Shimano brakes. The rear brake is currently sticking when activated and I've been getting by without it. I had the rear hub rebuilt about a year ago -- new Mavic Open Pro rear wheel on a Surly hub. By my measure the frame is 57cm center to center. I'm around 190cm tall and this bike feels like it should.
I'm not an expert but will answer any questions you might have to the best of my ability. I've loved riding this bike around the greater Seoul area... But it's time to go back to the motherland. *sniffle*
PS I've got a bag of stuff that'll go with the bike, including a freewheel, three additional chainrings, a u-lock, allen wrenches, along with the original cranks and handlebars.
