Yeah, it's worth it if that's the bike you're looking for. Not a bargain, but I think it's a fair price. You can probably get it for a bit less.

It really depends on the local market for used bikes. In my area this could sell for around $130 or even up to $150 (but I live in a seller's market), so from my perspective, that price tag is decent if that's the bike for you. Of course, you should always try to barter!

I also live in a sellers market 40 miles from salem I think I can sell this for 150$ but I think I would rather keep if for my girl. I emailed her 20 minutes after she put the add up we will see if she responds.
