Where are you located ? I saw a CL add for about 8 or 9 bikes in Covina, CA (Los Angeles area).... About 4 just like the one you picture....he's asking $200 for the lot !

I think you can do much better, especially since ladies models usually sell for a lot less then men's models.

Pass on this, price is WAY too high for a ladies single speed cruiser.

Thanks for the input. I am in BC Canada, where pretty much everything goes for more... I mean everything, new & used. However, I am going to pass on it.

I do like the mens frame much more (way cooler..lol) & would pay more but this was for my daughter.

Cheers! tim
