I've been looking to buy a good used bike on a budget that wont be used a whole lot off road, maybe a few trails here and there. Came accross a used Trek 7000 zx in "overall good condition" but it needs new tires and chain for $75. Sound like a good deal, a really good deal, or should I stay away from it and look for a more up to date second hand bike?
Thats really all the info I have on the bike so should I try get more info or should I avoid it?
PS. My budget is more than $75. I just moved into the area and i NEED a bike to get out and about on but I havent started working yet so I dont have a huge budget. I'd like a nice bike that I wont have to put too much money into. I've seen other used (some barely used) bikes that have been in my budget but this looks like it MIGHT be a good deal but I dont know much about it.
Yeti SB95C, Titus X, Litespeed Siena, Electra Ticino
I've got the same rig (maybe a 99?)...Get it. I have enjoyed many years of service from it!!! Down with the Trek nay-sayers on this forum...I still ride it even though I've got other bikes to choose from. $75 bones? Damn. Big smile...and enjoy.
