Colombia Lexington 10spd any good?





I'm thinking of purchasing this bike? What is an appropriate price and what can you tell me about this bike? Thanks very much in advance!

It's a low end bike. A bit heavy. Where do you live? Try craigslist in your area and check a few garagesales. Look for something with more aluminium to it.

I wouldn't give more than $10 if it was ridable with good tires that hold air, and gears that shift perfectly. It's not a bit heavy, it IS heavy, hehe. Unless you're desperate to save gas, don't bother.,,,,BD

ah thank you very much for the advice. I saw it on craigslist for $20. I think I will hold out for better- saved me a 30 minute drive to look at it!

Great, so you ask about the same bike and get all the answers. I ask and everyone ignores my thread.

If you are interested in vintage bikes, we should hang out and ride some time. I'm just north of New Haven.
