is it worth it?!

Is this bike here <https://www.realcyclist.com/cutter-bones-bike> worth paying $250 for?

Why or why not please.

whatever i think 250 is a good deal if you're getting it locally and don't have to pay shipping. my friend just got a brand new bianchi pista steel for 300 though, which is a better bike. so maybe make a lower offer or just wait til somethin else comes along in the classifieds that's a better deal
