Looks trashed and needs a LOT of work. May or may not be a good price depending on what is there and functional. This is one that needs to be inspected in person, I think.

Not as a flip candidate. Seller may have only ridden it a few times, but what about the kid before him? I paid $25 for one in better condition than that one.

It doesn't look trashed to me. You will have to do work on it, but that is the fun of it. I would buy it for $75 if it fit me. You might even be able to get it for less. Heck offer him $150 and take the Cannondale home too.

I am thinking closer to $50. Looks very neglected. Lot of elbow grease will be needed to make this look nice. I don't know the hierarchy of the PDG line up but this looks like it is Exage 500LX or maybe 400LX so it would be a lowerend bike. If you want a bike for off road use make sure it has full ChroMoly frame and fork.

It's interesting how PDG Mt. bikes have such a low $ value.
