Cannondale SH400 the price?

Hoping can get some insight here as I am completely lost on the bike value scene.

I came across a Cannondale SH400 for $125 on craigslist.

Looks to be all there, haven't got to go see it yet. If it is in rideable condition I was going to offer $75 for it.

I am looking to get a bike to cruise around the city for shopping and whatnot.

Anything I should know about this bike? Is it worth it?

Thanks!

Pics would help or maybe some information about the bike. IMHO most any cannondale you can buy for $125 and ride trouble free for a few months is a good deal. Unless it has there proprietary headshock system or full suspension then run away.

What is a HS400? a Hybrid? what components does it have?

Why do you think it is only worth $75? If it's the one in LA, you'd better jump on it.

https://losangeles.craigslist.org/sf...567140440.html

I've paid $100-$150 for H300's, but with an overhaul and new tires they're worth considerably more. Here is one I bought last week. They're 700c rims, but the 18" frame makes it ride like an MTB.

Just bought the one, yes in LA, for 85 bucks. Has some rust spots, and needs new grips, otherwise rideable. Thanks for the help!
