Thank you all for the advice. I am supposed to be able to go look at it and ride it this evening. Wouldn't you know it's so windy here that there have been wind warnings on the radio, but if everything else looks good then I might go back again tomorrow night to get a better feel for it.
I spent some time looking over the reviews for this bike. It seems the major complaint has been the tires, rims and a few complaints about the brakes and shifters. Hopefully some of these have been replaced considering the age of the bike.
The current owner has only had it for the last year and says he needs a taller bike so is wanting to upgrade.
I'm excited to go see it tonight, but will keep everything in mind. I'm also thinking about what Teniswhiz said about buying a new bike but waiting until the off season for a good deal. Between now and next summer I am just hoping to rack up some miles, not do much else. I suppose if I keep getting in shape with my hybrid, then just imagine what I'd be able to do with a road bike next year!!!
Thanks again for all the great advice.
If it is to be it is up to me.
