Default Used Bike.

A guy is selling a 2mth old bike, the bike which i wanted to get, helios 300 2010, it would be 92dollars cheaper than buying a new one. The thing im concerned now is that, isit easy to fit a bike yourself? the bike is size 50, would be the size i would be getting, like handlebar height, seat height, seat position all those? isit worth that 92 to get accessories or that 92 to buy a new bike and get a good fit? any comments?

Is better that you check the bike if it is good and everything is working fine go for it. And your front,back lights cycle computer, helmet,gloves all would take close to $200.

No need to paiseh just ask you are bringing business to them. If you don't like their service in other way just go to other shop

Anyway to summaries up the accessories

Front Light is abt $35
Back Light $35
Cycle Computer $100
Gloves $20-$30?
Helmet- Invest in good one $150?

By the time you add up goes to above $200

Must also factor in tubes which you will need

Yeah that the bad thing when you buy 2nd hand you have to take a chance but since is $90 is up to you. Personally i would pay $90 more and get the assurance of the shop backing.
