Craigslist bargaining you say?
A little backstory first. I'm trying to get my girlfriend out on the trail with me without breaking the bank if she doesn't like it. I'm almost a foot taller than her so trying out one of mine is kind of out of the question. So I started asking my good ol' buddy craigslist for a smaller bike that could still handle a bit of abuse. This is what I've found, and I believe it's just a tad overpriced:
GT Rebound (looks like a 97 to me). It has been female owned (just quoting the ad) and only been on the road. Nothing has been replaced or serviced from what she has told me. She wants $300 for a bike that retailed $550 12 years ago. What's the best way to talking her down to something more reasonable or should I be hoping for something else come down craigslist lane?
I just want to try to get out there before the snow falls too deep.
Anyways, here's a link.
And here's the winner if we had that much cash:
Thanks for your advice in advance.
