    Raleigh Capri (year-?)

    Hey there, so my bike was just stolen and I am on the hunt for a new bike. I don't have a car so this is my main mode of transportation. I don't need anything too extravagant but I don't want to get a piece of junk. I don't know much about bikes so I am in need of advice.

    What do you guys think? I need all of the advice I can get.

    Thanks!

    Ridiculously high. Capri is a very low-end mid-80s Raleigh USA (when the brand was managed by Huffy), Made-In-Taiwan bike. That would be about a $100 bike around here.

    This is a lot more bike for less money: http://losangeles.craigslist.org/sfv...185402189.html

    ...and if you're over 6 feet tall, this one is a steal! http://losangeles.craigslist.org/lgb...185320580.html

    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    The Capri is an '86. I sold one last spring for $100.
