    Purchased 2012 Specialized Langster for $200

    I've spent the last couple of weeks trying to find a decent fixed speed bike to learn on. I was thinking about purchasing the filo TT on BD when i saw this bike on craigslist. It's a 2012 Specialized Langster for $200. Usually when I see bikes like this on CL I think they are too good to be true. But I drove 45 mins from my house to take a look at it and everything seems fine. I'm still a little concerned that I got ripped off. Is there anything I should take a look at on the bike?

    ditto
    for 200 dollars, if you can ride it for more than a few months without any major issues, you did fine.

    Sure looks like it. OP, if you plan on sticking with drops and like to ride on the hoods, I'd take some of the cash you saved and buy a set of proper road drops.

    Looks good. Looks like a college kid bought it with loan money, then realized he needed brakes, then realized he didn't like fixed gear, then realized he needed some weed money.

    Awesome score for you.

    Parted out it is worth more than $200, so I wouldn't worry.
