    Is this a good offer?

    A Diamondback Topanga 2003 for $250.

    The offer reads "Fantastic trailworthy mountain bike for female 5'2"-5'4". This bike is ready to hit the trail having just been tuned up by a professional mechanic leaving it flawless. It got a brand new rear deore derailleur and fresh gear cables as well as a Sram PC48 chain. It has a Rock Shox Judy TT suspension fork with years of life left on it and Deore shifters that will have you shifting crisp and rollin over anything that gets in your way. "



    Thanks!

    NO... they were not too expensive new, maybe 300- 400 .. I'd give around 150 max for it if you liked it.

    Fresh gear cables, if you go for the top of the line stuff are about $10-$12 and I believe I've seen brand new Deore RDs for $20 or so. Don't fall for the trap of nice new parts when the more expensive stuff is still old.
    Falling is learning...[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]...learn to not fall in a box.
    Any good American will watch THIS -and- WHERE WAS MY BIKE MADE?
