    To you it looks bad, to me it looks appallingly bad. Just has to last for two weeks.

    You can't really see it in the picture, but the rear brake housing makes a serious tight S bend. The cable...

    Riding a bike with a backwards fork is real tricky, especially when you have size 12 feet. Bet that's what got the bike trashed. The front wheel kept trying to flip 180 degrees to where it...

    My free Schwinn

    My aunt found it by the trash in her alley. She lives in a very affluent area. People throw away amazing things.

    It's not bad. I feel safer the further I'm away from civilization.

    I bought my first real good bike in '79. Checked out a Schwinn World Sport, but paid the extra money for a Univega Viva Sport.

    Somebody took the effort to turn the Sport into a roadster. The...

  11. World Sport roadster- what did I get for my $25?

    Picked up on Craigslist. It's an obviously lower end decent bike. And what are Silstar components? The front derailleur homes to the big ring. Did it come with these bars stock? Rode it up and...

    Good question. I was thinking about buying it, $10-$15 bucks tops. Old mountain bikes with street tires go quick this time of year.

    I bought a decent condition 64cm (?) Univega Gran Rally that was way too big for me. It was cheap because few people want a vintage bike that big. Sold the frame and held on to the Shimano 600...

    If you crash into a loaded beach cruiser, it's going to hurt. The M in MUP stands for multiuse, not My race track.

    Scary incident, and the fault of the fast guy's poor judgement.

    Free and worth every penny. See them on craigslist every now & then. Usually they've never been ridden and the owners want a fortune for them. A mediocre FS bike, designed mostly to look cool.
