    Would this be a good first road bike?

    Do the parts look like they have quality to them? Does this look like a light, fast road bike? 2008 http://houston.craigslist.org/bik/3890418852.html Thanks!

    It's not the best deal, but its not the worst. I'd offer $300 and have a solid starter bike with the knowledge that it will be upgraded from in a year or so. If you're 6ft and an inch or two, it should fit.

    Good road bike. Parts are also good. Light? Not so much. Fast? depends on you. Offer $250-300.

    From REI? That's priceless. Here's the new bike http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/.../bristol_x.htm.

    Entry level components. Weight? Go pick it up. Probably not that light.

    Fast is more a function of the rider.

    Price is a little optimistic.

    Fit is more important. If it fits, everythings in working order, and you like it, point out the error of his ways and talk him down.
