I wanted to purchase a road bike for short commutes and possibly start cycling as a hobby. I'm a student, so I'd like to save as much as possible. I started browsing craigslist. I'm around 5'9 to 5'10 and through some searching
I found a road bike that is pretty cheap. Price is $40 but poster says it requires "tuning, new tires, etc". Frame size is not specified but I sent an email inquiring him about it. Now, I don't know how to do any of the mechanical work, so I'm wondering if anyone has an estimate of what it would cost for a full tuneup of a bike in this condition. I live in Vancouver btw.
Here is a picture of the bike:
There is also another one that is $80:
