I'm a total newbie, looking for a road bike for recreational riding, and potentially the occasional commute (< 10 miles). I'm hoping to keep the budget under $400-500, so I'm looking to buy used. I need some help determining whether this bike might be worthwhile:

What should I be looking for? What questions should I ask?

I won't know unless I give it a test ride, but I'm 6'3" with fairly long legs, so it seems like the frame size might be in the vicinity of what I need.

Thanks in advance for the guidance.

Thanks very much for the input. At this point I'm changing my approach. I simply don't have enough knowledge and experience to make an adequate assessment of a used bike on my own, and I don't really have anyone else equipped to help make that evaluation in person.

My wife and I went to our LBS to take a look at some hybrid bikes and we're likely going to pick up a pair of new Cannondale Quick 4 bikes which are on sale for about $540 each.
