    Fugi Finest road bike - worth $275??

    I've been having a hard time finding used road bicycles in my size, but the seller wants $275 and I'm not sure if this is worth it.

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    Its not vintage, but if its in great shape , I'de say it is a good deal.
    In my area, any bike with brifters for <$300 is a good deal.

    That's not a Fuji Finest.

    This is a Fuji Finest.

    Drool.


    OP - I think that Fuji is worth $275 as well as long as it's in good working order.

    It is a Fuji Finest. They changed the style dramatically over the years. $275.00 is a fair amount if it fits and it works.

    Lose the "g' It's Fuji, not Fugi.

    Zorro was posting a pic of his vintage Finest.

    Your post could very well be a pic of a newish Finest. It appears to be a 1999.

    If that bike is in good condition, and is your size, $275 seems fair.

    Psst. It is spelled Fuji not Fugi.

    And just to annoy USAZorro:

    THIS is a Fuji Finest - which, by 2003, had become the next to the cheapest model in the line:

    That picture brings back memories - although I rarely ever saw a white one. When I worked for the shop, all we were getting in were blue ones.

    I am pretty sure that is a Mazda, not a Fuji, but the bike makes it hard to tell.

    In this area, a late model bike, brand name bike with brifters sells for $300+. If a nice road bike with brifters was listed on CL below $300, you wouldn't have time to come here and ask if it's a good deal cause it would be gone.
    If it fits, and you said it did, I'd buy the bike.
