    Hey Grumbler, you ever find a place to ride in the Savannah/Hinesville area? I travel there for work every few months (two weeks at a time) and bring my bike. Haven't had much luck either. I've been...

    Mc_aines has decided to part out his bike. I'm trying to talk him into selling me the rear rim, skewer, and rear/front derailleur (I know my front derailleur will eventually fail).

    They are the same, I just hauled the laptop to the garage and checked. As I recall, his seat is original. Plastic cover that eventually cracked, with pieces flaking off.
