    Need Opinions

    So I found this bike on craigslist for $350 and I was looking for opinions. I know for a fact that some of the parts arn't that great, but I think the frame is good. I'm looking to upgrade it eventually.

    Frame: Panasonic DX-1000 @58cm
    Handlebars: Chrome Track Drops
    Stem: Chrome Threadless Stem
    Fork: OEM
    Front Wheel: Weinmann Deep V, 32-hole
    Rear wheel: Weinmann Deep V, 32-hole
    Tires: Kenda Kontender
    Crankset: Shimano
    ChainWheel: Origin 8 110/130 46t
    Bottom Bracket: OEM
    Saddle: Velo Road Saddle
    Seatpost: OEM
    Pedals: Black MKS
    Chain: 1/8"
    Cog: 15t

    I know the deep v's and cranks aren't too great, but I'm not too sure how everything else looks. I was thinking I would talk him down to $300 and wondering what would be some points to help with this feat.

    here's the link to the listing:

    Thanks

    Buy it and sell me the Nitto Rando knock off bars. (naked road bars do not equal track bars)

    Also I think it's complete junk.

    Wouldn't give him more than $150 for it. The only thing worth a crap on it is the wheelset.

    Angles on it look real slack and I bet it's not a real fun bike to ride.

    I'd buy a kilo tt from BD and slap some decent wheels, seat, stem, and bars on it, and have a ton better bike for just a couple hundred more.

    That, or just keep looking.

    For tree-fitty you could get a new Kilo TT.

    Anyhow, anyone who says that bike is only worth $150 is probably underestimating. The Weinmanns on there (which look to be new) sell for $150 alone.

    It really depends on the condition of the bike. But it actually looks to have relatively new or well-cared-for parts. If the bike is actually in average or bad condition I retract my earlier statement.
