Hi all,

I'm reasonably new to cycling in general, and I've been riding a rusty, clunky old mountain bike that I bought and fixed up, but I'm realizing that no amount of fiddling is going to make up for the fact that it's just too small.

I'm looking for something that I can commute to work on, take on some light trails, and, once I'm in better shape, take for longer road rides.

I'm looking at a used Bianchi Axis, probably a 2002 from the pictures. Does $500 seem reasonable if it's in good shape? Is there anything I should pay attention to when I go try it out?

Thanks for any input!
