Nooberpocalypse Intro / Opinion on older bike
Glad to be part of this forum, I'd like to make a quick introduction. I'm Green, been riding mountain bikes for a few years and just very recently made the switch to road bikes. I love it and I'm never looking back as it's much easier on my back and knees.
I did my research and ended up purchasing a 2009 Felt Z100 from my LBS and got a killer deal but I'm looking for a project / daily commuter bike and thats where the Elance 310 comes into the picture. Being sold locally on craigslist and the seller claims it's in good working condition for $170. Would like to get some of your opinions on it, whether I'm wasting my money or if it's worth it.
Thanks for your input.
I found this thread, lucky guy found it in the trash. Hopefully it can clean up as nice as this one:

Cheers Green, welcome to Bike Forums.
How old is the bike? People in our Classic & Vintage Appraisals forum could probably give you opinions on the value.
It's a Trek Elance 310 from 1986 I believe. Will know for sure tonight when I take a look at it. Seems like a good deal for a quality bike from that era. Thanks for your help and if I end up picking it up tonight will post it up in the Classic & Vintage section.
