Last summer my son and I discovered that we really enjoyed biking. I had a 26" Next MTB converted to hybrid, and he had a 26" Mongoose MTB coverted to hybrid. We got in a lot of miles, but we really wanted more of a road style bike. Well now we have them. My son aquired a Magna Impressions 10spd for free, but it needed tires and tubes and some cleanup. I purchased a Raleigh Capri 410 for $30, it also needed tires and tubes and cleaned up. The Magna has a 3pc crank with Falcon components. The Raleigh has 3pc crank with Shimano components. Just waiting on the tires to get here, ordered them off of Ebay. We can't wait to get them out on the road!
Good choice. i went from mtb to Road and not looking back, all my stuff is used too, so i had fun learning how to fix it all. How new or old it is doesn't matter much to me, as i enjoy finding a good for me deal and putting the steed back on the road.
