A lot of the bikes in my desired price range are re-builds.
I would probably buy one if I could be certain that the reason for the write-off was rashed plastic due to a low-side or something similar. Naturally, potential frame damage scares the shit out of me.
I would never buy a re-built car but bikes are different.
I'm interested in what others think and if there is a way (through ICBC or?) to get details of the previous damage, who did the repair work, etc.
