Clyde wannabe looking for a bike
I've been on a workout program since the beginning of April and in that time I've gone from 288 to 249 and I'm ready to get back on the raod again. A big part of my cardio has been the stationary bikes at my gym, I realize it's like night and day but it does have me wanting to get back out on the road. The last time I did any serious riding was about 17 years ago when I rode around Denmark with my dad but my but I'm tired of riding to nowhere in the gym. I have my old Puegot in my mom's basement but who knows how rust ridden the thing is at this point. I'm going to pick it up soon to check it out, but looking around at the price of new bikes has me discouraged if it isn't salvagable. Anyone have any advice on finding quality used bikes? The only other option in my price range I've seen is those Dawes/Motobecane bikes on ebay. Thanks in advance for any advice.
