    Is this a good commuter bike for $100?

    Hey guys, looking for a bike to ride around town. Is this a good deal?

    FRAME: FUJI Cro-Moly Steel 20.5 inches(Large) WHEELS: ShimanoDeore LX with Tioga Psycho II Rear Tire and Continential Leader Pro front tire.
    DERAILLEURS: Shinmano Acera X(R) Shimano Alivio (F). BRAKE LEVERS: Avid AD-1-0, Shifters Shimano 24 speed (8x3) Shimano. SEAT: Fuji
    HANDLEBAR: ICON aluminum, The components on this FUJI frame are quality parts. The bike is spotless clean and everything adjusted and working properly. Includes choice of Clipless SPD ( 2 bolt) pedals or Platform ( non clip) pedals. The wheels and brake levers / shifters are well worth the proce I am asking for the complete bike. PRICE IS $100 FIRM.

    $100 is nothing for a bike, a Wal-Mart Clunker is more than this ...so, yes.

    Thanks for the replies. I wanted to make sure the components weren't junk, as I do not know much about cycling... yet.

    A bike is worth its market price minus what it costs to get it to "running condition". The components on this bike look fine. It's what you don't know that may cost you. If you know a little bit about bike mechanics and you can check that it does not need major repairs, then it's an excellent deal. Otherwise, keep looking. A "lesser" quality bike in good repair (good rims, tires, cables, chain, etc) is worth more as a commuter than a fancy bike needing expensive repairs IMO. Unless, of course, you are willing to spend what it takes to bring the bike up to snuff. Not long ago I salvaged an ancient Jamis Diablo rigid mtb bike bought for 50 bucks and got it running for 100 more. So that was a good deal, but not if it had cost 300 to get it back up to snuff. It is a balancing act between paying for a bike ready-to-run for 300 or 400 on craigslist or ebay and a diy repair jobbie.

    Sounds like a pretty good deal. Contact the seller quickly or it might be gone.
