Specialized Globe Work 1 Step Through, What Do You Think?
My friend who works at a local bike shop offered this bike for $250 + tax (new). It's new so I feel it's better than a used Cannondale Quick 5 that needs a cassette and chain replacement.
What do you think?
That's a nice price for a nice bike, IMO, if it fits you well. The only thing that I wouldn't care for is the shifter (mainly because my wrist has arthritis in it).
Depends on a) the fit and b) your perceived use for the bike. If all you intend to do is errand running, short commutes, casual rides, and general in town use, it's fine.
On the plus side, the Globe would need no parts replacement and would come with a factory warranty.
