I would say, if you can't possibly get it checked out, it's not time to get a (used) bike yet...

Figure out a way to make friends with people that specifically have bikes. Go to bike shops & try to chat up the mechanics. Sure you'll get tossed out of some, or given the cold shoulder, but someone will be nice. If you can't / won't / whatever, make biker contacts, you're taking a gamble buying used. Maybe you'll win, maybe not.


edit: Once you have a shop lined up, just ask any potential seller to meet you there. Do arrange it with the shop beforehand, though.
