    This CL ad caught my eye

    http://miami.craigslist.org/pbc/bik/3050960801.html

    Its a 2002 but looks like its in great condition and the frame size is right for me. Does anyone know how strong the frame is? Is it a good quality bike? Bad components? Any pointers would be great! Thanks guys

    Retailed for $750. It looks pretty much stock. Looks like Reynolds 520, plenty of nice frames made with that material.

    The cassette looks like it might be pretty worn. That would be $35 bucks for a new cassette and chain.

    Components look fine. Low end, but all dependable road stuff. Do you want a racing bike? It doesn't look very rack/fender friendly.

    Fairly priced bikes don't last long on the local CL, especially if they're as clean as this one looks. Scheherazade's assessment of the quality is right on the money.
