short deception: I've been looking for a decent bike to go back and forth to town and perhaps with a side of mountain biking/touring/camping. So I'm aware that I'm not going to get a decent bike for 50 dollars to do what I need and I'm trying my best to stay away from Walmart brand bikes but they keep ramming me up the ass. My mother was looking in the trader helper for bicycles, so she calls this guy that had this road master and without telling me she went and got it and when she came home with it. I was overly disappointed to be honest and I sounded out a a few things that I shouldn't have said. Don't get me wrong i am very grateful what she did but i'm just disappointed.
Both the frame and rims are steel, The handle bars seems to be off a bit, the rims are untrue, the chain rubs the front derailleur, the brakes seems to be off center. The rims need to be replaced. Other than that it is a smooth ride when I can find the right gear, also the front wheel when spin by hand a little it keeps on going for a good 1- 2 minutes so the bearings seems good.
What should I do? Take it back to the person that she got it from and try to get the 50 bucks back? And or should I just try to fix it up by buying new parts when I can or is the frame itself not worth my time or money. she told me that he bought this bike from a bike shop which i don't see how a bike shop would even carry this type of brand.
