    Deal or No Deal?

    Spotted this on Craigslist http://saginaw.craigslist.org/bik/643910765.html Looks like a decent deal on a decent bike, thinking of snagging it to replace my current commuter which is needing more work than it is worth. I will take a look at it on Saturday but would like some opinions on the bike from the crew here.

    Deal or No Deal?

    For that price you can't go wrong as long as it fits you. That being said, I have to question the statement "It's sized to fit a person with an inseam of 25" or more". That's a pretty large range, isn't it?

    Exactly why i am going to go look at it, I usually take a pretty small frame. If it's too big i might take the bike anyway and spruce it up for an ebay sale. However good finds are rare on my craigslist so I need to at least go look at it. He has another bike on the list right now that is definitely too big.
