    What would you do?

    Here's the deal....

    I'm a roadie at heart, who thought he would want to go to the mountains and ride the trails as an alternative. Turns out I was wrong, way wrong, and now I have a new MTB sitting in the garage. Don't see it getting much use, and I feel bad for it just letting it sit there. What would you do?

    1. Try to sell it (criagslist/ ebay)
    2. Try to trade it for a road bike
    3. Do nothing

    TIA
    ...blades don't need reloading.

    4. Give it to me and I'll use it a lot and send you an email every once in a while about how happy the bike is.



    Sell it, or trade it. Where do you live, and what kind of bike?

    Ideally I would love to do a straight trade for an aluminum track bike 53cm - 55cm

    The thread seems legitimate, but let's not turn this into a for sale or trade thread about this bike, as there are specific places for that...

    For Sale requires a paid membership, and trades should be in the specific threads that are sticky in certain subforums.

    I think there is a for trade thread in the Northeast regional forum...

    Thanks!

    Bike messengers around here prefer to use mountain bikes in the inner city, using light weight slick tires. A mountain bike is tougher and more durable on torn-up and bombed out inner city streets than the typical road bike. For daily rides of five or ten miles, a good mountain bike with light slick tires is an ideal bike.

    Go ahead and give mountain riding another try.

    Or use it as a bad weather commuter.
    Not too much to say here
