I am on a mission!

So here's the deal.
I want a mountain bike.
But I don't want to pay much for it.
I want it to be dirt cheap as a matter of fact.

So here's my plan.
I'm cruising the thrift stores.
Every day between classes and work.
And I will find that dirt cheap mountain bike.

But before I can brag.
I have to find this elusive bike.
So periodically I will dig up this thread.
And let everyone here know how I am doing.

It will be mine... oh yes that dirt cheap beauty will be mine.
BTW I don't believe I mentioned that this bike will be AMAZING did I?
Wish me luck!

Good luck!

I am pretty sure there are good deals out there if you look hard enough. How cheap is cheap? <50?

you can get a good hardtail (msrp maybe 8-9 hundred) offline.
get a 2003 hardtail offline and u can sometimes save as much as 300 dollars.

You cant get a bike for 15-50$. Not one that works, or will last long, or can do any dirt jumping, urban assault, cross country, free ride, etc... Just save your 15-50$ and buy mountain bike magazines. That way, you can LOOK at good bikes, without actualy owning one!
