Anybody have one they want to offload? I'm in Folsom, looking for an extra small kids road bike, similar to the Fuji Ace 24/650 or the Trek KDR 1000, or Felt F24- but don't want to spend a fortune.
Anybody have one their kid out grew, or decided they didn't want to ride anymore that would be willing to let go :)
We were in the same boat a little over a year ago. The used ones I found were going for $550 or more. I got a new Felt Z24 from Folsom Bike for around $600. I'll sell it in a few years when both the kids outgrow it. My 9yo went out with me this morning for a nice little 17mi ride.
It's worth getting one to ride with the kids.

Redline has a cute little cross bike... We were going to get one for my 10 year old son but ended up getting him a dolce... It's blue so he doesn't care it's a wsd. Definitely worth it!

There has been a small Gardin on consignment at Livermore Cyclery (the one in Livermore, not Dublin) for quite some time now. It even has a bent top tube to make the standover height shorter. This is a real bike - Columbus tubing of some sort - and may well be what you are looking for. 7-speed drivetrain if I recall, definitely Shimano. Give them a call at 925-455-8090.
