I'm new to the sport and am looking for a used bike. I am looking for a fun way to get some exercise and enjoy the outdoors. I'll do street and light trail riding. Nothing too gnarly at least until I can pedal more than 50 yds without being out of breath.
I found a 2000 trek 6000 in what looks to be great shape. I've read many reviews and feel that this bike will suit my needs, at least for a while.
The he bike is a 19.5 inch frame with 26 inch wheels. The owner claims it's been lightly used and I won't be disappointed.
I'm 6',1" and 240 lbs. Is the 19.5 inch frame suitable for my size/weight?
It seems the front DR is the weak link in this model. I may upgrade if it gives me issues. Is there anything else I should specifically inspect prior to purchase?
He listed the bike for $300 but after I showed him its value on bbb, I got him down to $150. Does that seem like a fair price?
Any info or advice regarding this specific model is appreciated as it's the only bike for sale locally in my price range (under $200).
I'm meeting the seller tomorrow afternoon so quick replies are appreciated.
