any one need a bike?

Postby andromeda23 » Thu Aug 04, 2011 1:28 pm

i have a bike that i used last year that i'm willing to give to anyone that wants it pre-playa. it needs new brake pads but the frame is sturdy. the chain is a bit rusted, but i oiled it and it seems to be moving pretty well. it's a beater that just needs a little TLC. There's duct tape all over it, but it's coming off.. kinda. the wheels are good, the tires are good, it's yours if you want it.

Also, my dad has quite a few bikes that need much more TLC. basically you'd be getting a frame and some handle bars. my mom would be forever grateful for these things to find new homes. :) maybe some cutting and welding for that bike trailer you've always wished to had out there? or an art bike?

I'm in the Sacramento area.
PM me if interested.

I'm working on getting a couple of photos of it up of the usable bike, just having some issues finding a way to shrink my file size enough. going to try my phone cam.

Disregard previous post. bike will not work for him. it has been discovered that the tires are a mere 24". so bike is still available.

wow, that one inch of overall height difference will render the bike useless. Gawd forbid that the seatpost gets raised by one inch. :wink:

The problem is the stroke is too small and the guy was taller. He tried a bike at a shop to test it too see if it can work but it was too uncomfortable for him to ride. so this bike will work well for.someone shorter. :)
