I'm buying my first bicycle and saw a used Fuji Arcadia for $150. Is the price acceptable? I noticed a posting where someone bought the same bicycle for $25 at a yard sale, but I'm located in a major city and the bike appears to be in great, clean condition. I don't think I'll have to do much to do it.
Also, will the frame size work for me?? It's a 19" ladies' frame and I stand only 5'1". From my research, 19 inch should be perfect. Any thoughts? My in-seam is a measly 26 inches.
After googling some, $150 seems a bit high. But if it's in good shape and you use it regularly, you won't care. You might want to have a local shop go over it and it might need things like brake bads or tires. (Offer $75.)
given that it's a "ladies's" frame, the only sizing issue you might have is the distance between the seat and the handle bars. That is, given your size, this distance might be longer than you'd like.
