    Is this a good used bike (Iron Horse)?

    http://toronto.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-s...QAdIdZ48597617

    Found this bike on kijiji, is it a good deal? I just want to spend around $150cdn. I'm just going to occasionally use it for commute, once a week probably.

    entry level components, steel frame.. I wouldn't pay over $150 for it, honestly. You could probably do better.

    It'll do. Tell him you're willing to spend 150, and see what he says. If he says no, you'll find something else.

    Did you see this? A little TLC, some tires and a chain and you'd have a really nice commuter

    Wish I could find something like that around here. I need to move closer to a big city.

    I was thinking that I'd shoot a $125.00 offer at him with the intention of splitting the difference to end up at $150.00. Don't be afraid to walk away if he's too hard to deal with. There'll be other bike deals as good as this one.

    A friend of mine has an Iron Horse. It's a POS. Very heavy.
