My bike broke the other day, and since it sucks and I have some spare cash, instead of fixing it I’d like to buy a new one.
I’m looking for an old road bike that I could maybe turn into a single speed/fixie. Now, I know nothing about bikes. So searching through craigslist I just e mail anyone if the picture looks halfway decent.
I’m meeting with someone in about two hours to look at a bike I found that they want 125 for. Looking at the picture I’d pay maybe 35 dollars for it.
Below you will see the craigslist ad with the pictures. I was hoping that someone could tell me if it’s worth the price or things I should ask when i look at it or how to haggle the ■■■■ out of them.
Men’s Nishiki Road Bike - $125
Date: 2010-06-22, 10:54AM MDT
We are moving out of town and are selling a Men’s Nishiki Road Bike. The bike is in great condition and recently received new tires and cables. Only issue is that a friend borrowed the bike and somehow lost one of the bolts that holds the left pedal on. A very easy fix (just need to get a new bolt - picture below) but we’ve lowered the price in consideration of this. An excellent bike for a great price!!
