So this morning as I came down from my apartment I saw that my bike wasn't there. After asking maintenance and stuff, we came to the conclusion it was stolen. I later found the cut lock next to where the bike had been :'(
So my gray Puch Pacifica Series 1 was stolen. I'm pretty sad cause I really liked that bike.
Just a few weeks ago I had gotten a new tire (summer heat is nasty) and was in the process of getting some classic drop bars for it.
On to my question. What bikes or models should I look for that are not super expensive ($200 or less if possible)?
I found that bike to be light (anyone know the weight?), and comfortable to ride (I wanna say it was 53cm or something since it looked smallish). Also, I really liked the downtube shifters. Not sure if many other bikes have those.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I'm somewhat new to this. I always wanted to get a classic bike and then I just happened to find this one and nursed it back to life and really liked it.
