Hey guys. I'm new to the forums. Lately, I've been borrowing one of my friend's Giant Escape 2 to go on casual bike rides and want to get something for myself. I want something similar but lighter and a little more like a road bike. I'd get a road bike but the stance makes my back hurt.
I was looking at the Giant Rapid but a new bike is out of my budget. I'm thinking of going with an older FCR model. Someone has a 2005 FCR 3 in my size for $190. It's in good shape with a few scratches and light rust on a few bolts, which can be easily cleaned. According to bikepedia, the 2005 model is the only FCR 3 that came with a carbon fork.
My friend can help me with any tuning that it might need.
He was asking $250 and I got him to lower it to $190. Does it sound like a good deal for this bike? Here are the specs.
