I know this is a very novice question, but I hope to learn quickly and not bug you too much
I've never had my own bike before ... don't ask... so it's very exciting
I saved a bike from going to the landfill, however now I wanted to know if it's hopeless or too expensive.
When I measured the wheel, it was a bit over 25', I'm not sure what this means.. Is it 26' bike?
I need to replace the tires + tubes, that's about 2*15 + 2*5= $40 CAD.
The rear wheel, when rotating touches the frame, it's that bent, so I guess I need a new wheel - $35.
The front one only touches the brakes when rotates, so probably could be fixed a bit..
Do you think the bike is worth fixing or not? If it's at the break-even point, I guess by fixing it I could learn a bit.. Or should I start with some decent $50 or $100 used bike..
There's a bike that I really like at Costco, hybrid something, similar size, for $299 CAD, but then I'd be worried someone might steal it... I'm northern suburbs of Toronto.
