Can't tell if good deal or not *Fry meme*

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

Can someone tell me whether this is a good price for this bike or not? It seems like it is in pretty good condition.

You'd need to look at it and see what actual condition it is in. A lot of people talk up the stuff they are trying to sell and when you get to see it in the flesh the description can be quite different to what it actually is. It's a pretty old bike, it would depend too if you could get an accurate mileage figure. I would ask the owner to throw the other set of wheels in as part of the deal, they aren't worth $200 extra IMO.

maybe the seller would like it better if he didn't have it set up like grandpa mcgee. for that price, he should also include those kyseriums too.
