Diamonback Master TG road bike worth?

Thinking of looking at a Diamondback Master TG road bike this evening that looks to be in decent shape judging from the poor quality pic.

Seller is asking 100 bucks. Is this bike worth that if it's in good shape?

Is it tig welded with oversized Tange tubing?

Probably a 105 group.

I would if it didn't look beat up.

I wasn't able to check it out tonight, but the seller called and said she still has it, so I am going to make arrangements to check it out tomorrow, if it's still around.....I'm not in any rush, just thought it might be worthwhile to check out. Sounds like my size, so I'll see if it is a junker or a possible fixer upper.

My wife will flip.....lol...."why you buying another road bike.....you just bought one??!!??"

lol....I can hear it now.......

But I have the perfect response, as I fixed up my mountain bike for her to ride...."babe, I need another bike to ride while I have the Schwinn torn apart for regreasing and replacing the bearings and freewheel and brakes"......lol

You all here are absolutely correct......this truly can become addictive.....

It's good to get your responses queued up. I missed out on one about 3 months ago for $100. You might not be in any rush but someone might snag it from under you.

+1 If it is a good deal, it won't last. So I would move on it.

Cool!!! Just heard back from the seller, and the bike is still available(which could mean bad things, of course.....) and the seller works similar hours that I do tomorrow, so unless someone grabs it late tonight, I'll be able to at least look at it tomorrow.

I'll let ya all know what happens......and thanks so much for all the advice and such!!!



Edit: It got snagged late.....I was suprised it lasted this long, especially if it was in any sort of decent shape. Ah well.....not like I don't already have a bike to ride and work on...

Thanks again for all the advice and help....wish I could have gotten over there tonight.....damned dentist appt!!!!.....lol

Nah, it got snatched the evening before I got there. No biggy, as it's not like I don't already have a bike to work on. If I had really wanted it that bad, I would have found a way to get over there sooner.

There will be others..../shrug
