I'm looking for an inexpensive way to get my wife on a bike, as my son and I have decided to start riding and will be buying new bikes soon ... she's, em, let's say, over 50, with no real bike experience ... will likely not go off-road very often and will never do anything dangerous or difficult ... probably will mostly tootle around our mountainous town (many steep hills) on pavement and easy trails, with the occasional venture onto easy state park trails.
Found this used bike online:
Trek mountain bike ... 26Ē wheels, 18 speeds, 15 in frame.
Older Trek Antelope 800, bought new ... early 90's ... great condition ... never been off-road.
It was bought by my mom and hardly ever ridden ... less than 50 miles total.
Shimano components all around and everythingís in good condition ... shifts and brakes perfectly.
Good bike for my wife to start with? Fair price?
