    $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.
