Fuji S12-S 18-speed Touring Bike for $100 - Too Small?

I'm trying to find a cheap road bike but i'm 6'1". I found a Fuji S12-S 18 Speed Road Bike for $100. Is this a good price for the bike? Would this be too small?

Hello, welcome to the forums. Yes that is too small for someone your height. you need at least a 60cm (24") or slightly larger frame.

Your knees would top the handlebars, yes it's too small. Looks to be about a 21" frame. You'd need 25" frame in a Fuji, or 60-62 cm.

Yeah the yellow one looks like it'll fit you. Not an amazing bike but a decent price at $100. I'd look at it.
