    Does anybody know anything about a Sekai Mountaineer?

    Hey, I'm desperately looking for a bike on CL and just came across this. Looks like a decent bike but I've never heard of Sekai at all before. I found a little bit of information saying they were an old manufacturer out of Seattle but nothing besides that. If I'm looking for a basic commuter which could maybe be modified for some touring later on, does this look like a good deal?

    No offense but that was a really crappy bike back in the day and still is..

    You can do much better for a $100

    That's kinda what I was expecting to hear. Also looking at this (SCHWINN HIGH SIERRA MOUNTAIN BIKE) Schwinn, looks like much better quality but the guy lives much further away so I'll have to figure out how to get down there

    Wow good find, but in this case it will be a shame to use it as a commuter bike..

    I had a Sekai Mountaineer as my first bike and it was pretty crappy. It cost $300 back in the day and isn't worth $30 today even in perfect condition. In one year I managed to break or bend everything on it.
