Good bicycle hunting

Saturday a neighbor came by and asked if I'd do him a favor.  His son is going back to OSU in two weeks, is living off-campus and is looking for a bike to ride to class and such.  He wanted to know if a big-box store bike was a good choice, didn't want to spend a lot.  I told him he'd be better off looking on Craigslist.  Buy an older model name brand for $100 and a strong U-lock.  I checks Craigslist for him and found a Giant Boulder, cro-moly 21" frame (the son is 6'2") with decent components for $125.  They brought it over yesterday after they picked it up.  I adjusted the seat height as it was too low for him, gave him some pointers on locking it up and that he will be invisible to drivers.  He's a happy camper.
