Is this a good deal for a starter bike?

    Old junkque like that typically goes for $25 at garage sales or thrift stores,and you don't have to pay shipping. It would make a decent enough beater,but don't buy it and then start throwing money at upgrades,when you find it lacking for more serious riding.

    Thanks. That's kind of what I figured. I wouldn't have to ship it as it's in my area, but I'm thinking of getting a brand new bike, anyway. This, I thought, might be a decent cheaper alternative.

    Too bad my dad sold his old Schwinn Le Tour a couple years ago. That would have been perfect!

    There are decent used bikes around.That is just not one of them if you are halfway serious.
