Hello Everyone. I love biking, but I'll be the first one to admit that I am a total noob to this, so pardon my ignorance in my following question.
I live in Brooklyn and recently came across an incredibly beautiful emerald green 1970s Schwinn Varsity ride (I think it was a 10 speed). I currently ride a Black 1980s Schwinn World Sport (18 speed). [I'll post a link for a pic of the varsity I found on the net].
My current bike does me fine, but this green one was just gorgeous. The frame fits me well and she rides nice (just went around the block). The only thing that scares me about the Varsity is it is considerably heavier than my Black Schwinn. Is there an advantage/disadvantage to such a heavy bike?
The Green is in very good condition (looks brand new) and the asking price is $220. Is it a deal? Am i better off sticking to my black Schwinn??
Any sort of help would be great appreciated. Thank you so much!!!
Here is a photo of the Varsity. it looked just like this: http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=...1t:429,r:1,s:0
