Ok, that's more like it! Thank you very much guys!

If I'm reading things correctly I'm definitively not getting screwed if I fork out 200€ for the bike. In my location that's above average, but...

I am yet to get an appraisal for the bike so I'll use this bump to post more details.

My "relative pricing" scheme is a dud so I'll just put it plainly: the seller wants 250€ but I'm not prepared...

Hey Bianchigirll! Thanks for stopping by! I'm all giddy because your name kept popping up while I was researching this bike! :)

Here's a story I concocted, not necessarily accurate, but much shorter then prefixing each sentence with "I'm guessing", "seems to be", "probably" and the like. :)

I figure the more time a wheel of a vehicle spends in contact with the surface the more safe the vehicle is. There's also an issue of longevity of critical parts and if you have something designed to...

The wheel was actually dished for 135! That's what was annoying me the most. I figured that out by putting some washers on the axle and setting it all the way in the dropouts.

Thanks man! In the end I returned the problematic bike and got this (http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread.php/828745-Scott-Sportster-50-XL-2012) one. I'm one happy camper now. :)

OMG! I know I'm not to be trusted because of my noobishness but this bike is just awesome! I paid 200€ for the previous one and double that for this one. But it seems to me the quality increased 10...

Thank you very much, that's useful to know about the hangers! I got the bike from the official Scott distributor but it will surely be easier to stock some parts now than possibly wait for them...

That's it! Two people not saying I'm making a horrible mistake is all I need! :D I'm going to the store right now and I'll get back with first impressions.

Thanks!

Yeah it looks very MTB in the pictures, but not so much up close. I guess the wheel size is deceiving.

I thought about the sus fork long and hard. I figure the whole point is fitness so it doesn't...

It's a nut axle, not QR. Hopefully the axle discussion will be moot because I'm negotiating with the factory to send a new QR freehub (this one is freewheel + nut) and cassette. That would mean...

I thought as much, but what really worries me is that the axle was tightened in such a way that it didn't sit all the way in the dropouts. That brings all sorts of cringe inducing torsion images to...

Hey!

Hi! You can call me John, my real name is too hard to pronounce.

I returned to cycling after 20 years with a new, cheap bike I got a few days ago. In comparison - those were 20 years of misery!

I got a new bike a few days ago. This one: http://bike.capriolo.com/2012/sport/monitor-man It's cheap and it's kinda weird because it has some MTB features, but it's mostly designed for city riding -...
