    Womens Fleetwing Delux Roadbike?

    Hi all,

    Can someone please give me advise with regards to purchasing this bike. I can't find any information on this make online and my neighbour is offering to sell me one for $155 (USD).

    These are the specs and hopefully I can get a picture up here:

    10 speed
    49 cm frame
    Special Hi Tension Tubing
    New CST super HP tires 27x1 inch
    Shimano gears

    Is this bike good value for money? Much appreciate your help.

    No. For the same money, you can go to walmart and get a brand new one of similar quality.

    seriously? thanks for the heads up.

    he also has a vintage ladies Raleigh sprite cruiser with 54cm frame, 27 inch tire, 10 speeds which has a mint royal spring saddle and a back book rack aluminum crank for 190 USD. (picture attached)

    excuse the ignorance. i really need a bike but i know nothing about them. i really appreciate the advise.

    The raleigh is certainly a better frame, but for 190 you can get a much nicer used bike, I would think. Ask your local bike shop if they have anything decent in your price range.
