    Might be adding a couple steeds to the stable

    A couple of JcPenney bikes from the 70's. I know they aren't anything special, but I figure this will be a better alternative for commuting to school than my new Bianchi Axis Cross Bike.

    Here are the links...

    Oh and the WSD one is for the Fiance

    Oh really? I thought they were a little over-priced. I was going to offer the guy $100 for both. Evidently the front deraileur on the WSD needs some tweaking.

    I don't think they're worth 150-250, but that's what Craigslist sellers seem to think they can get for old gas-pipe ten-speeds that need new everything.

    I thought maybe it was just because I'm cheap.
