Hey everyone! I recently purchased a road bike. It was up for sale for $500 with an extra $80 for shipping, but I was able to get the seller to give it to me for $225, putting the total cost at $305. I'm still waiting for it to come in and I wanted to hear some feedback on it if possible. I only have off-handed experience in riding a road bike, and this is my first time actually owning one myself. I'm going to convert it to single-speed upon getting it, as well as apply some new Cinelli white cork tape to the bars.
Here are some pictures:
