    Is this a good bike / what's it's worth?

    Says it's a Lightweight 52" Hybrid--but it's a Giant.

    I'm a beginner, but I've found this and I'm wondering if it's worth pursuing.

    Just wondering if this Giant is a good Giant and how much it's actually worth--as I can probably get it for about 50 bucks (which seems to me a steal?).

    Maybe. It's not a road bike but if it fits you OK as a starter.

    p.s. in this context "hybrid" means halfway between a road bike and a mountain (off road) bike. Probably better for riding on trails etc.

    Ah, I see you crossposted this thread to both hybrid and road. Here's where it would have belonged, in hybrids, so I closed this one oin favor of the one you had here in hybrids as well.
