Is this Really a Giant bike and is it worth that Money? I don't trust Craigslist and need some guidance.

It is a Giant and if it's as good as it appears it's worth the money. I'd still try to negotiate a lower price but that's just my Scots-Irish ancestory.

Ofc bro, but i just wanted to make sure if it was real and even worth negotiating with in the first place. It looks like a giant Sedona to me but it cool be fake, who knows.

Ooooh, good call, I just gave it a quick glance. After a second look it's not so sweet is it? Could be "urban camouflage" to deter theft. Or it might be "slightly" stolen. Sorry OP, I pulled the trigger a little quick on that one.

Yea it one of the first things i thought when i saw the listing. I thought this bike was either fake, or stolen and repainted lol. And regarding the "slightly used" remark, i never trust any craiglist description, it's all BS until i see it first-hand. I've seen some description where the guy says he used the bike "12 times", that's how you know it's BS. Nobody counts or remember how many times they've used their bike, let alone a fixed exact number like "12 times" LMAO!

ALso like i stated before, i think it's a real Giant sedona or a fake. But i've never seen a real giant Sedona go for that cheap, which means there is something really wrong with this bike. Anyway i sent the seller an email with some questions, depending on how he answers the question i'll be able to find out more about the item.

Since it's Craigslist I'm assuming it's local.

Hey, It's a $100.00 bike. If the bike didn't have any flaws the seller would be asking for more money. What's a Wally World bike cost $85.00 maybe? Look at it and see if the seller will let you ride it. If you ride it and you like it, offer the seller $85.00.

Or he sold it to somebody else while you were hemming and hawing around.
