Need some info on a Fuji L700

hi--i just purchased a fuji L700 and was advised by someone on yahoo answers that it's not worth much (even less than i pd for it-plus it needs a tune-up)--also it's a 19" male's frame for a 5' 2" woman. the seat's been adjusted, though and i can touch down comfortably and easily. i was wondering if anyone could share any info they have on this bike (whether it's half-way decent or not) & whether there's any problem w/the bike being a bit too big as long as i can touch down.
thanks!

p.s. pls pardon the busy background and low-lighting of these pics...i had to take them in the living room.

Hi Kara,

The L700 seems to be a knock-off of the Fuji Crosstown. Here are the specs on the Crosstown.

thx for the info, Ron!

that's kind of what i was thinking. someone on yahoo said it was a store made version--thus a bit of a cheaper version of the crosstown, itself. we'll see what happens as to whether i keep it or trade it for something that's not so huge for my own frame!
thx, again!
kara

Congrats on the new bike Kara!.. My wife and I recently bought our first bikes in years... Giant Sedonas.
We love them and once it warms up here in Augusta we will be out riding every evening.

BTW... is your username related to the B-52's song?
