  2. it's definitely a bike - so it would definitely do as a stand-in for another bike, I guess. Depends what you want it for...?

    its only going to be for trail /everyday use till igo shopping for the big boys toys, or put another way then......Is it worth the £70 notes he wants for it..its in great condition
     
  4. for the price of dinner for two at a decent restaurant, I would say it was worth it. See if he will take an offer though...
     
  5. If you are willing to pay £70 and will get enjoyment out of it, its worth it. My self I'd be after something a bit lighter (without suspension), narrower/ slicker tyred and higher geared but I'm after on road efficiency from a bike.

    got it for £55...so not to bad then...?
    like i said its only as a make shift for 2-4months
     
  7. worth £55 all day, especially in good nick. HLab makes a good point above, but if it's only a stand-in then it won't hurt..
     
  8. For £55 it'll be perfect :-)
