well, its not a GREAT deal but its not bad if its your first bike or somthing. they are only 279 new
Looks like a small frame - how tall are you?
We have enough youth, how about a fountain of smart?
16 in. frame. I'm 5'-7" so it fits me. I know it's not much bike. I'll just use it ride around the neighborhood.
Never give them what they ask. That is a starting point of course, unless $100 is what you haggled them down to. I would go to them if local and pull out $75 and say this is all I have. They usually bite! For beating around the neighborhood I would throw down $75 on it. Good luck and keep us informed what you do.
Congrats! Riding any bike is better than none at all. It looks like a well maintained bike from the picture. But hard to really say. I always say, if you feel like you got a deal and are happy, then who cares what anyone else thinks. Ride it like you stole it!
I just took the bike out for a spin this morning. I rode a combination of paved and dirt trails (singletrack), and herre is my impression.
This is no surprise, but I would say the bike is just adequate. It's a heavy bike, and you feel it. Everything held up, but I would not call this bike nimble. However, that is reflected in the price.
