Call or text and ask the brand name, model and frame size. If the bike is the wrong size for you you'll hate it and never ride it.

I've never heard of the brand, but it's a fixie or SS, and I wouldn't consider it long distance bike

Agreed, even in flat areas, most people like having at least a few gears.

It would seem from what your desires in a bike are, and what you asked the folks to look at, that you do not have enough experience and knowledge of bikes to be shopping on craigslist or the internet. I would suggest you go to your local bike store, not a big box store or a sporting goods store, and talk to the folks there about what you want and have them give you a hand.

It appears from a quick search, that the decal is a "brand" for a live fit group and not the make of the bike.
