Ross Gran Tour II at local thrift shop
The local thrift shop has this 10 speed Ross road bike. It has a sticker saying 1020 tubing, it is lugged. 3 piece cranks. Didn't look too close at the derailers, probably SunTour or Shimano. Stem shifters.
It sort of fits me, steel rims with one broken drive side spoke. Steel handlebars and a super stubby stem I'd have to swap out. I'm thinking of getting it as a loaner bike or setting it up as a commuter or flipping it. The chromed fork ends have some surface rust. They only want $16 for it so cost isn't a big factor.
I don't really know the Ross brand and usually pass them by. But there seems to be a few folks here who really like them so maybe I've passed on some nice bikes.
What do you think of this bike? I'll try tp post a cell phone pic, or will post it later. Thanks for any comments.
Yep, phone won't play nice with pic posting so later for those.
