Tell me anything about this bike? Miele

I am a newbie, and looking to buy a bike. I'm a college student, so I don't have gobs of money to spend.

I think this bike looks really good... but don't know much about it, or much about bikes in general.
Anything you can identify just from the picture let me know. No parts or model is listed in the ad. Not even a year.
Anything I should ask the seller, or is it even worth looking at?

If it was near me I'd be all over that. Miele's are great, well built, wonderful ride. They fly way, way below the bike radar.

Miele's were built in Canada, by Jim Miele, they carry the Italian flag. Worth checking out.

Nice bike looks like a higher end model Ive seen some with eye poppin paint, this ones orange its nice. You get turbo saddle chrome forks,probably Shimano Exage (nice stuff) , no chain, offer him 200 say it needs a chain and tune up possibly tires. you wont be disapointed. this bike can fly. make sure it fits you good luck let us know how you did.

The Miele you are interested in will be a mid level machine but a very nice bicycle, none the less. I have seen a few really high end Miele bicycles, and several similar to the one you have shown.

The bike is definitely worth a couple of hundred dollars, in my opinion. Miele bicycle, all of them encountered so far, were well made, nicely finished and offered decent ride qualities. That, of course, is my opinion.

For what it is worth, my Miele is one of my favorite bicycles in my collection.
