Thinking about replacing my commuter (Trek 7.2 fx), saw this guy on craigslist. I don't know anything about vintage bikes, so I was hoping you all could help. Thoughts on this one?

I'd say if it fits you're good to go.

^Yup. Looks like a nice build, and a lot of folks here like the Triplecross.

Looks like a pretty nice build considering the level of components and nice extras it seems like a fair price for the Boston market. If it is your size this should make for a nice commuter.

Gravel grinder? Nice bike, nice price.
I call them bikes. I dont have a cockpit, a drivetrain, dashboard, transmission, and i most certainly don't have a build, or a fixie.
