Any other makers out there still using steel, besides WalMart brand, etc?
thanks for your suggestions
There are millions of bikes from the 1970's to 1990's that are steel framed rides
A really good bike can be had for way less than $500 in the used market with care.
After you find the bike you like you'll have many spare dollars to re-hab or
update that bike into a premium ride if you shop used. All for less than $500.
How do you find a used steel bike?? Easy, take a good magnet with you when
My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.
