Stupid CL Bike question

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Stupid CL Bike question

http://cincinnati.craigslist.org/bik/1298711562.html

Is this one of those "Huffys" that were made by a company that started with an "S" I believe?

Just wondering, because I'd love to ride a road bike, but I want to spend little in case I don't adjust well to it.

And if it's a crap bike, tell me I'm stupid for looking at a Huffy.

Thanks.

No doubt about that one !

I literally would not take it for free, because I'd have to spend the time taking it to the dump. There are better cheap bikes to be found.

Gah, I should have known. My first bike was an XMart huffy and it literally fell apart on me after 20 miles. :/

When a bike costs $30 and the only description of its condition is, "The brakes work and both tires hold air", chances are it won't be very good.

Nope, it's a genuine Huffy. Looks better than it rides.
