that big of a frame usually brings less... mediums usually sell for more. I'd say 800 - 1100 somewhere in there. what year is the frame?

I put about 50-100 miles on it off road, bought a road bike, and decided I don't want this anymore. It has probably at least 5 nicks or paint scrapes, but the frame is in great condition.

How much would I have to pay you? Would it be similar to the price I should ask for the bike? if so how much? Thanks for the help.

Yep, in california we pave the roads with rocks.



Luckily, I only rode it about 6 or 7 times so other than my neglegence to clean off the mud which caused some paint flake, it's in good condition.

Feeling like I might be old enough (and sore enough) to rate a squishy but that's too big for me.

Send me a link to your CL listing and I'll pass it around here... I know some tall people.

That would be AWESOME!

In this case, she got sponsored by Converse last year; those are a pair of stickered-over PF Flyers.
