I Got A Roadie I Got A Roadie :)...

Yay my dad finally bought me a road bike (used) for $40. It is a nice Push bike, cream color (champagne color). To my knowledge the model name is Superliecht, and it is supposed to weigh a mere 4.1 pounds. Its definatly more than that, but its still very nice bike. It's manufactured in Austria and the company renamed and started producing here in America. Its a very nice bike and I'll post pics up as soon as I finish detailing it.

Your friendly neighborhood monster kid .

P.S. We just got a barbeque too. Used but free .

Congratulations!

Remember to check the brake operation and lube up the chain if needed.

Hi max,

I think that it's actually a Puch (pronounced Pook). If I remember correctly, it's made in Austria. They were very nice bikes for their time. If the one you got is in good shape then it was a very good buy.

Post a picture of it.

BTW, what were you riding before?

Well, the bike is probably too big for you, but at 5'-8.5" it's probably not dangerously large. At 13, you'll probably grow into it. A lot of probably.

Can you comfortably stand over the top tube without hurting yourself or do you have to lean the bike to the side to stand over it?

Don't worry. You're certainly not the only person who's ever accidently ruined a tube that way. It happens. Sorry to hear it, though.
