Is this bike worth $150 CAD? Hardtail Infinity Swift

I'm looking to buy a hybrid bike. I found someone who wants to sell me this bike for $150 Canadian ($115 USD). Is it a good deal?

"Infinity Swift 24 speed hybrid hard tail,shimano guts,sr suntour forks,aluminum frame,absolute mint condition"


PS. I'm a very recreational cyclist so I wouldn't use it often.

Hi. Assuming their claim of mint condition is accurate, and it doesn't need a bunch of consumables right away (like tires, cables, etc.), then yes, I think that's a good value. If it's really a 24-speed, then it should have a 3x8 drivetrain, which is an upgrade from the bottom-tier bikes with 7-speed freewheels. The bike should fit you well -- so check that prior to purchase. No bike is a good value, regardless of price, if it's too large or small for the rider.

Good luck!

It seems odd that every bike for sale only was ridden twice, but maintained by professional mechanic.

If you look at the bike, measure the chain length to see if it is newish.

It is a bike that was sold at Costco. Chances are good that it was originally an impulse buy and then they realized they really don't want to ride. It appears to be for less than 1/2 of the original price. So yes, if you were not going to get too intense into biking it would probably be a good choice. Since it was probably assembled at Costco or by the current owner I would probably take it to a local bike shop (LBS) and ask if someone could give it the "once over".
