    Newbie question - what can you tell me about this bike?

    Hello,

    I bought this bike from a friend when we were living overseas on a military base in 1994. I gave him a hundred for it - he had purchased it new within the previous year I believe. It's a Peugeot Normandy(is that the model?), 18 speed. I use it for trips around town, rail trail riding, and some single-track type paths to get to a few fishing holes around here - though I stand up because the bumps are spine-jarring. I even rode it in a small triathlon(12 mi. ride). I'm wondering what it's best use/intended purpose is. It looks hybrid-ish to me, but I know nothing about bikes. It's been abused, but whenever I've taken it in to the LBS to get tuned along with the other Walmart specials my family has it's the only one that doesn't inspire looks of contempt. Thanks!
