Hello all --- thanks for this forum.
I just bought a 1980-something Peugeot road bike with 27" wheels. I was all excited,
cause my first bike in high school was a Peugeot. I miss it... My roommate, a bike
enthusiast/obsessive, saw it with me and said i HAD to get it. I did, for $200.
And it rides beautifully... until it got a flat tire.
The seller neglected to point out (and I certainly wouldn't have noticed) the tubeless
tires. Now, I have NO idea how to deal with tubeless tires. And, according to a couple of
local bikeshops, they're more trouble than they're worth. Had I known... I wouldn't have bought
Here's the deal: is it WORTH actually replacing the wheels/tires on this? It will be expensive , I'm
sure... but I can't afford to have a bike with tubeless tires, either. Apparently.
I'm interested in whether I got a good deal, as well. After the fact.
It's a black frame w/orange Peugeot lion on it.
The serial #: Y4047501
There's a sticker by the rear wheel with: PH11 USNM60X
Any help? Suggestions? Anybody wanna bike a bike???
