I would not consider it a good buy. What are you looking for? I have never been a fan of bonded aluminum frames. At $320, you should be able to do better.

This particular bike is a Frankenbike. Many of the components are not original, and are a step down from what that bike came with (and quite a bit older). Looks like the seller cleared out the parts bin on this one.
