The frame on my beater bike is busted on the weld and I refuse to ride it. No matter, it's an unknown brand.
Anyway, this guy is selling his Trek 830 (I believe 1999) and it has been garaged, and only ridden 3 times (they are all only ridden 3 times, aren't they?) It's basic, entry level, but BEAUTIFUL and very clean. I know nothing about this bike spec wise, but I need it to ride around in the rain and as a loaner to my friends.
I am waiting for him to tell me what time to see the bike tonite. It's an hour drive to his place. He wants $110. Is it worth it? Not really, huh? If not, how low should I talk him down to?
