I am looking at a 12 speed Bridgestone road bike on craiglistdc for $150. Just for commuting. ANybody know about these? 80's style frame with gears on downtube, 20 inch frame. I'm 5'2

Some people really like Bridgestones. I'm one of 'em, gotta love that steel frame.

Have you ridden the bike? 20" sounds a little big, I'm 5'1", my mtb is a 14.5" frame, I've ridden 17" frames, all depends. My sister who is nearly 5'10" just got a new 20" frame bike.

Test ride it first.

Bridgestone were good bikes. I think They stopped importing them in 90's. I'm also a little concerned about the 20 inch size with your build. any chance you could test ride it?

I suppose. I'm not really hot for it, just looking for the moment.

But you say you're 5'2" (as am I), and the ad says suitable for a 5'5-5'10" woman?? Be careful - it sounds too big! Just for comparision with another road bike that is measured in inches, I ride a 17.5" Terry frame.

$150 is no deal if it doesn't fit. :(

I passed on this one. Gotta keep looking:( I'll be getting either the Kona Dew or Trek 7300 for commuting for now.
