    I require a "code word" for all inquiries; email or text. That eliminates almost all scammers as they don't really read the ad.

    It's not a matter of being truthful. I have found several bikes with unrecognized frame damage. The owners never knew the damage existed. It's hard to spot a mildly tweaked fork or frame. That's why...

    Agreed... If you must tinker and adjust; be very careful that the brake shoes can't slip below the rim and get into the spokes.

    Absolute disaster.

    You can "sharpen" an Allen wrench by lightly grinding the end of the wrench. Never grind the sides; only the end. Be sure the bolt cavity is clear and the wrench is fully seated as you may only get...

    I've never sold a mixte for less than $225. Well maintained and sharp looking mixtes sell quick in my area. I would almost flip it at that price.

    Of course you can cut a fork; there's no reason not to. The replacement was too long.

    I think that is exactly what happened… When I put the bike on the stand and rotated it… I dumped about a gallon of water out of the frame… Never occurred to me to look for frozen burst pipe damage…

    I was just trying to say how I would price it and no; I would not call that a good candidate for a flip. The OP wanted to know the value of the bike; not if it was a good flip.

    I like the color! If it's in good, ready to ride shape, that's a fair price. If the paint's really great, I'd rebuild, detail and polish and ask 300 and expect 250.
