I need some help with old bikes
Hi everyone, I recently got the bug to ride street bikes and need a little help getting started. I was looking for a bike at some local bike shops but they all are out of my price range. After doing a little bit of research I think I might have came up with a solution but since I am a complete noob with bikes I need a little help.
I was searching for bikes on craigslist and came across some old schwinn frames, I don't know much about them and I don't know anything about sizing and everything. there is a 54cm schwinn world sport frame, a 56cm schwinn suburban frame and a 64cm schwinn varsity frame. I am about 5' 7" and 120 lbs, would any of these frames fit me? I had also read on here that you can get old schwinn bikes for like 10-20 bucks at pawn shops and stuff is that true? I am a broke college kid and the cheaper I can get a bike the better.
I would like to get a fixed gear bike, but I would like to be able to ride it free wheel sometimes also if that is possible. I could use any help if you need more information on what exactly I am looking for just ask, I'm kinda scatter brained right now and I don't even remember what I just typed. you can look at those frames at http://bakersfield.craigslist.org/bik/1320164728.html
if that helps at all.
Thanks for your time and help
