New to cycling, help!
My family has just recently got into cycling and I am currently trying to find a bike to ride with them. I am not looking to spend a ton because I am not certain about it yet. I found a bike on craigslist, but the seller has provided very little information. I know that it is a Nashbar, and about 20-25 years old. I will include the link with the picture. I do not know much about this brand so I am hesitant about buying it. Does anyone know more about this specific brand or can tell what model it is.
Thanks for your help!
My first impression - keep looking. THat bike isn't even worth the $225.
Just take your time and keep looking around, your patience will reward you. There are many better bikes around.
Can't really identify the frame - can the seller tell you more about the make? Lack of info shoud be a warning signal.
Search for online "fit calculators" to help determine the right size for you.
A "great deal" is worthless if it's the wrong size.
Thanks, I was leaning towards it being a bad deal, just wasn't sure! I know it is the right size because he could tell me that but that was about it.
How does he know it's the right size for you?

I suppose I should have rephrased that. I meant I have been fitted and the seller could tell me what size the bike was. I am not positive it will fit exactly right as I have not tried it out in person
