Hillyman, I see you learned to play that game started by our illustrious Janitor's Happy Birthday thread.

Interesting advice about pawnshops. There are four of them within10 miles of here and I've never once thought to buy or sell anything at them. Maybe a peek now and then might prove worthwhile.

Michael W's advice is right on. Can't add to that. But some brands are Fuji, Nisson, Bridgestone, some Raleigh's, Some Schwinn's --if they meet Michael's criteria above-- and any brand names you know. Most important though, is the quality of the frame, even if the name is unknown. Also pick the bikes up. Good stuff is usually lighter.
