Possible Valentine's Day Present (Chiorda)
My girlfriend owns a Mercier Kilo TT fixed gear, but she recently started having back problems and doesn't like how far she has to reach just to get to the bars. I figured this might be a good bike for her because of it's upright position, coasting ability, rack, and fenders. I had thought of buying some risers for her fixed gear, but this might be cheaper in the long run. Plus, she'll be able to keep her fixed gear in go-fast-mode in case her back starts feeling better.
She only needs it to ride from her car to school, and back to her car. Depending on where she parks, it's probably around 1-4 miles round trip.
The guy is asking $125 for it. I've met the guy before; he finds old bikes and gets them rolling again and then re-sells them. When I met him he seemed like a nice guy. I actually went there to look at a bike, decided I didn't want it, and felt bad for wasting his time. Now I feel like I owe him a bike purchase.
Sorry for the information overload. I'd like to know how much you all think this bike is worth.
