Road Bike-worth it/safe?
Hey guys, I've been lurking around these forums for a while before actually registering. Now I have, and could use some advice.
I'm on the hunt for a road bike, but having a hard time finding one in my budget in my college town. I found a Panasonic dx-2000 on CL, but it has a dent in the down tube. I haven't seen it in person yet, so I can't exactly tell how bad it is , but here's a picture:
I think I can get the bike for $20-25 but I'm not sure if it's worth it with an ugly dent. I'm not in love with the idea, but it's so cheap.
So my questions are:
is it fixable? worth it? safe?
I don't know much about road bikes, so Thanks for any input.
