$150 for this bike?

Yeah, so I think I am going to buy this bike. It's from another mechanic at the shop I work at. He's as tall as I am and he said it would fit so I'm not real worried about that. I'm just wondering if it's actually worth $150. From what I can tell it atleast seems leaps and bounds better than this GT I have. This is what he's told me it's on it.

Short parts list from what I can remember.
Fly Bikes Frame
Snafu Stem
Dirty Harry brake lever
Primo Seatpost
Primo bar caps
Primo Pedals
Odysee Hard hat rear wheel (this wheel alone)

He wrote that, not I. I don't know, is there no such thing as a hard hat? So I am getting a pretty good deal then for $150? He made it sound like I was so I just figured I'd check. he says that rear wheel is worth $150, or was new or something like that, if that's of any consiquence.

No, no there is not. Odyssey does make rims and hubs under the Hazard name, though.

alright I'll ask him about it when I get the bike. They probably are hazard and he just forgot or something, who knows.

Cranks huh...yeah, maybe I will one day too, if I like it enough.

so do you get them for front and rear or just rear? Cause I only really saw non-drive side rear. I guess there could have been front ones there, I just didn't see that it said it anywhere.
