I found this bike for sale online in New Jersey USA for 125 dollars? It's aluminum frame, I believe it's a Miyata 1000a 1989 bike but I'm not sure. Can anyone help identify this bike? Also is it worth it at this price looking for a bike to commute with in urban area on a budget of 200 Thanks!

    No idea what it is, but looking at pic it needs chain (and therefore cassette and maybe front chain rings), cable inners and outers, looks like it has two flat tires, so maybe two tyres and inner tubes, plus loads of tlc and whatever that brings up (maybe new brake blocks, bearings, yada yada yada.

    If $200 is your budget for something that is going to be 100% reliable and not kill you/have to replace parts/take up loads of time maybe grab a single speeder from somewhere?
