is this bike worth buying?
i want something for coummuting and some light trail riding.
$150? i have a spare set of pedals for it.

i was warned that the radial-laced front wheel will not be very strong and that the fork, being such an old model, might be a pain in the butt.

For 150 I would go for it.

wow 150$, thats about tuppence in UK money, at least until the a##e falls out of the Pound again next week.
Isnt 150$ about a minutes wage in Washington, and a weeks wage in Florida?

The fork isn't THAT old...2001, perhaps.

$150.00 Go for it. If you dont like it you can resell for the same price on craigslist no problem.

I believe this bike was a 98 has great BB height many were used by trials riders, even as a single speed i would get it for 150. The front wheel is fine for most things specialized puts them on their bikes, as for the fork get a solid cro-mo.
