I posted yesterday and since then have found a few bikes for sale on craigslist that we are looking at. My husband would like a new bike (for recreationally riding around) since his current bike is not very good. I have emailed these sellers except the seller of the Trek since he only gave a phone number and I wanted to get your opinions here first. We don't know a lot about different bike brands but I researched a little and these ones seem to be good. My bike is a Schwinn that I have had for about 10 years and never had a problem with. (In case it's important info, my husband is 5'9")
This is the only one where I have had contact with the seller: http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/ws...013696450.html
Here are the specifications she gave me via email: The wheel size is 26, frame size 19 inches. It has 18 speeds/gears, shifts smoothly and brakes without any issues. I just put two new tubes in the bike and it runs great. It has always been stored indoors, so there is no rust.
This is a Shwinn bike. I have emailed the seller for more info and am waiting (and hoping) to hear back.
And here is the Trek, which I haven't contacted the seller about, yet.
I would really appreciate your help in rating these, best to least. In case a seller(s) doesn't get back to me it would be great to know choice #1, #2, and #3. Any other general info knowledge on these bike brands or others would also be useful to us.
And are the prices they are asking fair?
