I added 2 more Bicycles to my inventory

One is a Sterling/Univega Woman's road bike. I am gifting this to a friend that I did a century ride with last year. The bicycle is in fantastic condition





The other one is a Marin Bobcat-trail hard tail mountain bike.

Okay, you have a roadie, a newly acquired mtb for the dirt, and your Trek does double duty as your Touring rig.

What's next- fixie, CX, e-bike, or a 'bent?

Ah yes a Pugsly is what I had in mind. I have been eyeballing those for a while now. These 2 bicycles were a gift from 1 of my employees. This Sterling road bike I am going to give to the woman I did the Outrider century with last year. It is in mint condition and rather small so it will be perfect for her.

I also like the idea of a cargo bicycle, the kind that has a hopper in front of the rider but behind the front wheel.

it's good to help others and it's a shame to let a great bike slip by when you know it's perfect for someone else

Do you know the model of bike that you gifted, and or the value of it? It's a cool bike.

So nice...my first "grown up" bike was a Sterling I bought 25 years ago - I still have it (and was still riding it until several months ago when my neighbor gave me a "less old" Nishiki, which I have just replaced w/a Trek 7.4).

My Sterling is a really beautiful blue/green color, and it's in very nice condition. No changes to it over the years other than going to a slimmer and less knobby tire a few years back. My wife wants me to get rid of it but I'm sentimental and want to keep it for no good reason.

Weighs a ton, though.

Hi, m planning to buy a firefox roadrunner pro v. It fits my budget of 10k and fullfills all other needs. However, it is only available in 18" size frame, while m 5'4" .. I really would want to know if the size would be ok..
