Bauer Super Mini
A bike shop next to my working place has a nice folder for sell:
It called the Bauer Super Mini. (I thought that it was made in Germany but it has a sticker "Made in Italy" ... go figure !)
It has 24'' wheels - I took it for a ride - It handles very nice actually ... but I wonder:
- Does someone know about this model ?
- Is it hard to get rims and tyres for this kind ?
- Is it possible to switch to 20'' wheels ?
The condition of the bike is o.k (some rust but overall - o.k). The price is very low (about 50$)
I'm thinking about making it a fixed gear commuter - training machine ...
What do you say guys ?
Rims should be available check with the shop.Many Huffy type bikes have 24 inch rims & Huffy makes 24 inch cruiser bikes with alloy rims,frankly i do not think the wheels should be a problem.I am assuming it is a single speed.
It does have a single coaster type speed. I was thinking about converting it to fixed gear. I'm not sure about it yet
You may have to have a wheel built .That can be pricey.. Bike Nashbar has a flip flop hub available check your dropout spacing to determine compatibility.
