    Given the size of the photo, I can't even tell whether it's a bike, let alone whether it's safe to ride. – Diado Dec 4 '18 at 15:41

    @Diado I can't even tell whether it's a photo! Seriously, though, NEJC, you need to provide a clear, high-resolution photograph. Even then, it would probably be very hard for anyone to say "yes" because only you can be responsible for your safety. Trust your gut: if you think the bike might not be safe, don't buy it. – David Richerby Dec 4 '18 at 17:56

    Also, please don't write in all caps. It's hard to read and it's usually interpreted as "shouting". – David Richerby Dec 4 '18 at 17:57

    You guys are more brave than I (or perhaps browse in a better sandbox than I do) for clicking that link... – Ross Dec 4 '18 at 18:46
  • Can't tell if the image is a stationary exercise bike or some kind of lawncare tool like a mower. Google image search recognises a "Road Bike" though which is impressive. – Criggie Dec 4 '18 at 21:50

We can't tell you. However you can do a basic M check to test for the common failures.

https://www.sustrans.org.uk/what-you-can-do/cycling/your-bike/bicycle-maintenance-made-easy/m-check-your-bike-11-steps documents how to check over a bike.

You start at the front, and work up from the wheel/axle to the bars, then down to the BB, up to the saddle, and down to the rear hub. This encourages thoroughness.

If anything looks or feels wrong then it probably is wrong so first search this site for more relevant questions, or ask a fresh specific question if we've not covered it already.
