Used Trek 7200 hybrid -$250 good deal??

It looks pretty good, labeled as lightly used, looks like it. I'm 5'11 however and the guy says he's 6'2 but fits him fine, it's a 52cm frame. But I saw somewhere that if the bar is kind of sloped than that makes a difference. Let me know what you think!

i believe it's a 2010

I think it's 2010 but cant seem to find the color scheme for a trek 7200 2010 thats white/silver

Is it worth saving up another $300 to get a newer bike? Like REALLY worth it?

Maybe the OP has wrist or back issues?

If you get this you could be riding while you save up for the next one.

I would keep looking. The price is fair, but the suspension fork is unnecessary and heavy, particularly if you have to go up and down stairs with the bike. Leave it outdoors and it will be Adious! Also, that's a small frame for a near six footer. The bigger the bike, the more comfort, as the handlebars can be higher. VIP if you want to keep your head up so it can swivel 270 degrees.

I've got a big Cannondale hybrid that's immaculate, not listed for sale yet. Currently in Michigan, but heading to NNJ before the end of the month.

For what its worth I bought a trek 7000 for $180. There is a bluebook for bikes online http://www.bicyclebluebook.com/default.aspx
check it out before you buy it. The guy was wanting $220. A little over priced so I talked him down. Hope it helps.

1) I don't care for suspension forks or seat posts. You lose a lot of your petaling power with these.
2) I wouldn't pay more the $200 for it, that is if you really like it.

FYI,that site is pure BS. They're hoping it will catch on and people will pay to use it. It makes no consideration of condition/mileage,desirability,or availability. Check out the pricing they give for Bompton folding bikes,then look up listings on eBay to see what they actually sell for. Not even in the ballpark.
