I posted the other day about possibly buying a Trek 600 bike going for $125 with a mix of Ofmega and Shimano 600 components for my wife posted on Craigslist. I thought it may be long gone, since I didn't hear from the owner in three days. However, I just got an e-mail from him today, saying he's gonna show it to the first person who sets up a time.
Today though, I found what i believe to be a 1984 Schwinn Super Sport with Cyclone II components going for $180 that's closer to home. The Trek is about 120 miles away, while the Schwinn is within 3 miles
Anyway, the motivating factor here is weight. Should I go with the Trek 600 since it's made of Reynolds 531, or are the mid-80s Super Sports comparably light?
