    Hello All,

    I'm considering purchasing this bike, recently posted to Craigslist. I was hoping I could get any advice or insight you could provide on this potential purchase. It is lightly used and a hybrid. However, there is only one photo that looks like it was taken off of a website. Are there any red flags I should be wary of?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, of course there are always red flags when purchasing something off craigslist. I think if you are going to buy a preowned bike then maybe you should want to go to eBay or something. This is not really the safest and wisest decision anyone could make to shop off craigslist.

    Post was deleted, unless you bought that bike it was probably a scam.

    I hate that too. It say used, but they have a store advertisement picture that is totally a misrepresentation of what you are actually buying. Well, looks like it was a scam anyways. Post is gone.
