    Hello,

    I am new to biking, and I'm looking for a quality used road bike. Is the Schwinn Traveler below a good bike, and is $185 a decent price or should I wait for a better deal? If not, what models would you recommend?

    Thanks,
    Josh

    not too bad for 185 usd., are you a tall guy (that is correctly suggested by the seller) ? for that budget you won't get anything much nicer, this is really equipment to get you started or to be dedicated to commuting, for anything more serious you will need to invest more,

    I plan to use the bike for occasional commuting (not every day). I happen to be 6' 2". :) Thanks for your help!
