Thoughts on this Bike

I'm currently riding a GT Zum hybrid. I'm not a big fan of the flat bar and was considering a Fuji Sportif. I came accross this on craigslist. What are your thoughts? I'm not familiar at all with this brand or bike.

I bet you can find a much, much better used bike for the same price range or better. That looks pretty "cheap". Look for the name brands - Trek, Giant, Specialized, Fuji, etc.

You can get this new for $375 for the medium and free shipping:

If you want to buy the craigslist used one, there is some negotiation that can be done here. I would say offer $200 max for it.

No doubt. I think I would start at $150. Surprisingly few bikes on CL down here.

Can't tell exactly what it is, but in that price range I'd look at this over the Giordano: https://miami.craigslist.org/pbc/bik/6131879565.html

I did a search for reviews of the bike and found several. All were very positive. The $325 price seems high.
