Just curious, because I have one being delivered to me Sunday, and I'll be paying $200 for it. The seller claims it's in excellent condition and needs no maintenance and whatnot. I've done a little research so far, and read that it weighs something like 42 lbs?
Anywho, This will be my first ever road bike. It's a 51 cm frame, and I have an inseam of 31 inches (I'm about 5'7"). I don't have a lot of money to spend ($200 was actually my limit) and was thinking about buying that one brand from BikesDirect (D-something lightning? *Shrugs* I forget) but decided that this would probably be a better buy when I saw it. The seller also claims there has only been 50 miles on it, because when he bought it the mile thingy (Sorry for my lack of terminology, I'm a newbie!) said it only had 50. I've done my height research, and this is a rare occasion that I've found a bike under 56cm on Craigslist, so I decided to impulsively call and buy it.
So what do you guys think? Good buy? Good bike for a beginner? Fill me in with anything that I might need to know, please.
