Schwinn aluminum 564

Hello all realitively new to the site. I am looking for a good around town/college bike and I came across this Schwinn aluminum 564 paramount design. I am wondering if it is worth the $250.00 price tag I'll provide a link to the craigslist ad https://tallahassee.craigslist.org/bik/5017445800.html

Thank you everyone.

I believe these alu Schwinns were made in conjuction with Klein. They're very nice rides. However....

The bugaboo of this design is a quill seatpost with an expander bolt rather than the typical seatpost binder bolt arrangement. The posts tend to crack very easily, and once they do, no easy way to ride your bike as replacements are difficult if not impossible to find. So check the post carefully before you purchase. Any sign of cracking, pass.
