    NooB and Craigslist

    Hey everyone, I've been reading on the forum quite a bit, ton of great info,and photos!
    so I've been trying to decide if I want to get into this and get some exercise,but don't want to jump in and spend a ton of cash and then decide its not happening... So I've been looking at CL to see if I could find a starter bike to see how it goes. Found two so far I did some research on both but could use some opinions. So here it is:


    Custom Mountain Bike
    this bike is about 10 years old but not abused, here is the other one:
    Cannondale super V this one is even older but once again I'm not planing on using these for any major crazy trails

    You links aren't working for me.
    I remember the Super V. Assuming it's well maintained it should be fine for cross country riding. At least, my rose colored NostalgiaŽ glasses tell me it was a cool ride. Knowing your budget and area might help however. . . . .

    Ok let's. Try that again lol I'm in central AZ. Would like to keep it around 500$. So I figured if I spent 300on the bike and replace any minor things I would stay within the 500. Here is the link again http://prescott.craigslist.org/bik/3987903665.html
    And the other one
    http://prescott.craigslist.org/bik/3912335840.html
    So please be brutally honest, thank you

    This new bike is $419 delivered. Yes, you would need an upgrade fork for $200 shipped from Nick at Suntour if you decide to ride difficult/fun trails. Until then the components are Shimano mid range Alivio/Deore. These are fine.
