The guy says he'll let it go for $75. Good deal? I wasn't able to find a lot of info on this model. Looks like it would serve well for commuting though, hence my interest.

A basic bike, nothing special, but worth $75 as long as the seat post is not stuck and the seat tube is not damaged. I do not trust bikes where I see the seat bottomed out

I'd move the seat to the right height and ride it first. Make sure it all works including the tires...then if something doesn't you can negotiate down if you think it is an easy fix. Looks like a nice bike be your commuter.

This is a 10-speed hybrid bike. I think that for the same $75 (probably less) you could get a 21 speed hybrid bike with better components and more braze ons to use as a commuter.
