    I don't know how it is in CA, but in MI, you can do way better than a 20-year old Schwinn for $105.
    How do you tell the difference between a chemist and a plumber?

    I think that is one of the better made Schwinn MTB's. It usually goes for $150 to $200 in my area (Chicago), depending on condition. So, $105 is a good deal.

    Make sure it fits you. Good luck!

    This one is nice too.

    26" Specialized "Rock Hopper" 21 Speed

    ' might be better than the Schwinn.

    IMO, any CHROMO steel bike in decent condition, without rust issues is worth $100. Even if it's just for the frame alone...

    That is a much better bike than a Next or Magna you will get at Target or Wally's for a hundred bucks. If it fits, go for it.

    I doubt that its CrMo, but $100 is about right for a used bike like that, especially since it doesn't look ridden a lot.
    As much as you paid for that Beemer [Mercedies, Audi, Escalade], I'm surprised it didn't come equipped with turn signals.

    Looks cool. I'm in Sacramento also and that seems to be a fair price. I'd offer dude $80 and spend the difference on some slicks. Figure you'll want to lose those knobby tires if you're just cruising the hood.

    I've seen this guy's ads before and I don't know why he doesn't use the "see my other sales" feature. A pre-meltdown Schwinn MTB with trigger shifters and name brand components... I think this is probably quite a solid bike, if it's not used up and it fits you. No telling without looking.

    Rock hoppers are used by people who do not like buying new in my area!
