Trying to get my wife riding and if she doesn't, my son. Stumbled across this yesterday, Trek Lexa, got it for $75. Tuned it up and it's ready to go! Used isn't always so bad!

WOW! Just a tune-up ... or did you put more into it? That is a steal for $75. Hate to say it but, wonder if it was stolen.

Its a multiple generation old drivetrain entry level bike- probably 8-10 years old. Its a great deal and perfect for someone who isnt riding right now to test the waters without risking much at all. Based on the bike's age range and original cost, I didnt even think about it being stolen. It was had for cheap, definitely, but it wasnt some big ticket item to begin with.

really a great starter bike right there.

That bike looks great! I'm kind of jealous - for $75, I'd pick up one of those for just riding around in bad weather or even commuting. Excellent find.

I would be all over that bike for $75. No question about it. Good score!
