I have a chance to get a 2001 Schwinn Super Sport GL for 450.00 plus shipping from someone who has one with 100 miles on it. Is this bike worth buying for commuting and hard recreational riding for the price? Comments?? Thanks

Do you know the person? Is the 100 miles a legit claim? Was it treated well? (Bad things can happen in even 100 miles if the bike was owned by a Neanderthal) If the answers are no then it's a used bike and possibly a good deal, maybe not. If the answers are yes then I'd say it's a good deal. The pre-bankruptcy Schwinns were good bikes and you'll be getting essentially a brand new bike for under $500. I'm one of the few around here who think those bikes (Iron Horse, Motobecane) are not terrible but there's no doubt yours would be better. FWIW.
