Good, bad or ugly....
I recently purchased a Gary Fisher Tassajara. The bike is in pretty good condition, and from everything that I've seen on the web, it appears to be a 1997 model. Needs a little work on the FD and RD... but what bike at 10 years old wouldn't? (I hope most do, otherwise I'd feel bad.) At any rate, I paid $80.00 for the bike. Is this a good deal, or did I possibly pay too much? Let me hear your thoughts, be they good, bad or ugly....
one good leg
dude, it's $80, if it gets you on the road, it's all good. I've seen people charge a hell of a lot more for a piece of crap on craigslist. So I think you made out ok.
The Tassajara was a very good middle of line bike, with a great geometry and a very sturdy frame that was mostly identical to more expensive models. The difference were the components. At this price you didn't take a lot of risk and you can upgrade the frame with whatever component you wish. I recently sold a 1989 Mongoose Iboc Pro with no suspension and original Shimano Deore LX components for $100. So feel good and ride your new bike.
