Question Used Bike Sales - June 5, 2012, 07:12 AM

Sup all,

Wanted to go look at a bike in Front Royal. Anyone know of any bike shops or mechanics in that area to get an inspection done?

What is the typical etiquette for pre-bike buying look overs for used bikes through Craigslist or personal seller? As this is would be my first time going through the process.

Find someone who has a better feel on bikes to go with you to look at. Best case scenerio, you owe someone dinner, but are confident in the bike you buy.
