Can anyone tell me about this old Univega?

My bike that was just stolen had a chrome moly frame, and I don't want to buy anything heavier than that. I tried asking the seller if it was chrome moly but he didn't know. Any advice or suggestions?

Given the components, doubtful. Looks like a typical bike boom model & probably has stamped dropouts to boot.

Hello k.devin, my guess is that this bike seems to be a bit overpriced for what it is. The Suntour Seven derailleur was a lower end model.

Where are you located? It's possible that the members here could locate a nice bike for you if we know where you are.

Welcome to Bike Forums (sorry to hear that your bike was stolen )...

I'm in San Francisco. My bike was an Nishiki Olympic and too big for me but a very nice ride. Eventually I would like to buy a brand new bike, but can't afford it right now. I just need something to get around on for now that doesn't weigh a ton.

Plenty of BF members out your way.

What size were you looking for? Perhaps one of the members has something that will fit your needs and budget.

Size 50, last bike was 55, too big, I'm only 5'3, but I was comfortable on it.

I have a trek for sale I got from a yard sale a while back. i was gonna ebay it and try to get $225 or so out of it. If you pay for shipping ill let you have it for $100 just to get you back on two wheels
Its a 54cm with a shorter stem dont have the measurement off hand but I believe it to be shorter than a 90mm.
No obligation just trying to help a fellow rider.
Im in Maryland probably be like $75 or less to ship

Specs can be found here http://www.vintage-trek.com/TrekBrochure1987.htm its a Elance 400D
