I'm coming to visit the in-laws next month and looking to upgrade from the old drewed up Schwinn World Sport I keep there to something I can get some distance rides in on. Should be 54-57cm, prefer steel(old Treks seem to grow on trees up there) , and in reasonable repair(I don't keep anything but a multi tool and some regular tools there, so I can't do a lot). I'm also looking to unload the Schwinn, it's 60cm or so and now a 5 speed, works fine, but could use a repack on all the bearings, has new tires, lights and a decent nice Bontrager saddle and cushy Bontrager bar tape. If anyone is kind enough to help a C&Ver from Texas get rolling PM me. I wouldn't mind finding a riding pal or two, I'll be in Whitefish Bay on July 1st, until the 7th. Thanks

You looking to USE a bike while here or to BUY a used bike while here?

Oh, I'll be looking to buy, I like to keep a bike there. I use CL, but usually by the time I get a deal together, I'm leaving. Just thought I'd try to get a jump on it this time.

Well, I have a 4-5 year old Trek 7500FX tricked up as a road bike with nice Spartacus wheels on it...I think a 57 or under...It's in pretty good shape for a beater and I am three deep now on bikes. This one just sits on my trainer in the basement.
I could part with it if indeed it would be something you are interested in.
At first I thought you were just looking to use a bike while here.
Have a nice visit!
