Mustashian bike to buy? (eBay link)
« on: June 06, 2018, 03:52:15 PM »
Hello!

eBay is currently running a 20% off site wide sale... and I found a road bike that I'm thinking of getting.

I don't have much experience in purchasing bikes... and I'm worried I'm buying too much bike for what I'm doing.

Work: 1.5 miles
Grocery store: 5 miles

Even writing this... I feel like this bike is too much... But it seems to be a screaming deal at $360.00

https://www.ebay.com/itm/BULLS-Harrier-Road-Bicycle-Shimano-105-groupset-58cm-22-8in/263737493684?hash=item3d67fac8b4:g:-xsAAOSwKRBbA1jk

I'm also 5'10, I think a 56CM could be better... But...

What do you guys think?  Clearly there's a little impulse-ness "I need to get punched in the face" in this purchase... But I will ride my bike every day to work.  Is this $360 bike justifiable for a 1.5 mile bike ride?

That's a pretty good deal for a 105 level bike.

Check their website for sizing - https://www.bullsbikesusa.com/harrier-p-79.html

If it comes with the Schwalbe Lugano tires, I have to say that I felt like I was riding through glue when those were on my bike. For short rides, you may not notice, but when it comes time to replace them, get some GP 4000s, or Gatorskins if you need better puncture resistance.
