Schwinn World Sport 10 speed?
Hello, I currently own a Giant Cypress for my measly 4 mile commute and some light utility cycling but I'm looking to eventually upgrade to a road/touring bike. Besides the Cypress, every bike I've ever owned/ridden has been a beat up mountain bike. I would like to start transitioning to a road bike, but I've never ridden a bike with drop bars, etc.
I'm thinking that picking up an old bike off craigslist would be a great way to start before I invest money in a newer bike. This was posted today:
Is this worth looking at? I'm a college student and money is tight, but the Cypress is really starting to annoy me when it's windy out and I'm stuck upright like a sail. Plus it has no rack mounts. I e-mailed the poster asking about the 31" standover bike (I'm 5'10"-5'11") and he estimated it was late 1980s. I did a lot of searching and read some old threads, it seems like the World Sports are decent. Should I go look at it? What should I look for in particular? Would this be a good "starter" road bike for me?
Thanks in advance...
