$60 is a more appropriate price: http://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/bik/3576441158.html

Outfitters = a SportMart brand apparently.

Right, this is the bike, but wanted reviews or more info. On other sites i found their asking price $200+. Just want a commuter bike for my wife. she would only be doing a total of 5 miles back and fourth, just don't want it to fail on her. Till I get her a moped or Ebike. Anyhow, Thanks.

Yes that looks extremely old/cheap. LOL I ran a Bell saddle like that for a bit on my KHS bike... until I saw the light.

Pass on the sidewinder.

Try this Specialized. Adjusta-stem and sproing post are kinda a bummer for actual MTB riding, but nice touches for beginner commuter. It's a $450 bike vs the $300 Sidewinder with no brakes.

I like the Hard Rock better personally.

Cheap suspension sux. Cheap rigid bikes are typically a nicer ride, IMO.

In Hazel Dell myself. Volunteer wrench in a little bike shop downtown. We just sold our last good bargain MTB though, this sweet GT

Only good MTB we have now will be pricey...

All wheel-heads have to love the skit of Spike yelling "I am on a bike!".
That show is kinda hit-and-miss, but mostly hit.

I am actually an Angeleno. I just moved here about 3 weeks ago. Well, what bike shop? I'll prob come in for a tune up on what ever bike i purchase. Most likely a Specialized one.
