Thoughts on this Schwinn Traveler?

"Schwinn Traveler 10 Speed with 27" wheels. Lightweight series. Good Condition. Purchase of bike includes indoor trainer. $75. Please contact..."

from what I can see looks like a decent mid-level? if I can get 40 bucks for the trainer would it be worth the difference? Assume it needs the regular grease/housingand I am doing it myself. I have no interest in riding bikes in my living room. Tell me about the traveler a bit, can't find much info on it.

How tall are you? that is a huge bike must be atleast a 25" frame will it fit? For $35 it seems like an OK deal.

Decent mid level? Nope. Bottom end/close to bottom end. I see steel rims, steel bars, claw RD hanger, stem shifters = entry level.

If it was mid grade, it would be long, long gone.

If you are looking for something really basic, and it fits, the price is great.

If you're looking for a bike to race, that's not it , but I see a good rider for someone at least 6' tall. Oh, I also see a free bike: trainer $30, rear rack $25 , headlight/tailight combo $20. Go get it !
