Raleigh Competition GS

I was looking over CL this evening and came across this http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/an...683308985.html

I don't know that much about Raleigh. Is it worth it at the asking price? By worth it I mean trying to convince the wife.

It's worth twice that. Jump on it fast if you're really interested and its your size.

Super Courses go for that in my area...I'd get it if it's your size and it's in good shape. There are two on the bay right now that are going to go over $400.

agreed with everyone, it's a steal.

I had one that I had no problem selling for $350. I probably could have sold higher, but I really liked the buyer.
