bike review

hello, new to this forum...but I found this bike on Craigslist and just wanted some insight to what I may be buying, what I should pay and if it is worth it.

I’m looking for something I can go for a long ride on, move fairly quickly and get a post workout on after a run…should I be looking at something like this.


Univega Maxima 15-spd road bike w/ 20.5" (52cm) frame for 5'3" - 5'6"

Does the bike fit you? Correct frame size is the most important thing to consider when buying a bike. If the bike is too big or too small you'll hate the bike and never ride it.
The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. - Psalm 103:8

I am a cyclist. I am not the fastest or the fittest. But I will get to where I'm going with a smile on my face.
