    Need some advice - is this worth the price?

    Hey everyone! I really don't know much about the price of bikes, but am looking to get a hybrid for road/bike path riding.
    Was hoping to get your input on the bike at this link:
    http://sarasota.craigslist.org/bik/2340989812.html

    I am open to suggestions (brand, model number) for getting a reasonably priced bike in the hybrid category.

    Thanks, your assistance is much appreciated!

    Heck no. $340 for an 8-year-old bike from 2003 that retailed for $440 when it was new is not a good deal at all.

    This is the bike from that Craigslist ad: http://www.bikepedia.com/quickbike/B...+300&Type=bike

    I wouldn't pay more than $150 for that bike.

    $400 will get you a new Trek.

    Yeah $340 for a used bike is absurd.
    Between $100 and $200 seems reasonable.

    Thanks everyone for your input! I like to be an informed consumer, and you are taking me down that road!
    So glad I asked!
