Would this be a smart buy if in good condition for $$50??

This 14 speed road bike is equipped with Shimano hardware, Profile Lean-On Handle bar, and will come with the Cannondale under-the-seat bag.
The picture shows the tires deflated due to proper storage to protect the tires and tubes.

Hard to go wrong with $50 for a nice Shwinn. I'd go for it.

Yeah, I'd spend $50.00 on that bike, whether it fit me or not. I could flip it for an easy $150 or more.
