Hello. I recently found a trek 420 for $150 on graiglist, its really old like 20 years and that kinda turns me off, i dont know anything about old bikes. originally i was looking for a mountain bike but from what i read abour touring bikes this might be better for what im doing. it is a 50 cm frame, would that be good for someone whos 5'5''? oh and its also made of steel, i hear that steel is heavier, but more comfortable, is this true? is so how does what metal it is affect comfort? should i get it?
heres the link
I've been scavenging craigslist trying to find a good cheap bike to pretty much do everything in since i dont have a car, are there anybikes that you guys recomend?
