    Peugeot

    I am quite new to the world of singlespeed and fixed gear bikes, but it seems to be the best idea for me to get around campus.

    My LBS has an old 70's/80's Peugeot for sale. It is a singlespeed. I was told they got the frame and just put on brand new hubs and wheels, along with the rest...all new. Not sure on exact model. He told me the hubs were $140 and the tires were $40 alone. They are asking $285. I am soo sorry for lack of info on this, I've definitely heard of Peugeot before and thought they were a decent company, but maybe I was totally mistaken.

    Could anyone help me out, with this shortage of info, if this is a good deal or not?
    Would I be getting screwed pretty much?

    They are hard to get parts for if they are French threaded. What kind of wheels and cranks did they put on?

    Ends up the bike was too small for me anyways after riding it again....53", I need at least 55".

    Thanks for the input, I'll keep a lookout for other Peugeots now, they are nice.

    I have 2 Peugeots....So I think they are cool too.
    I think you could find a real nice conversion for around 200 like sunv said
    if you are patient. They arent that hard to find parts for.......Could be worse

    The brand name doesn't mean anything. Peugeot made the full range and most of the bikes they made were low end. You need to learn something about them if you're going to shop for one. Look for forged dropouts and Reynolds 531 butted tubes. If that one was a UO8, $285 would have been too much, even with new wheels.

    It's not hard to find parts for French bikes, but they can be expensive.
