I sold my Denali in a matter of minutes on Craigs list.

Sure my perfect bike would be a cyclocross bike, at 16lb in weight, at a nice price of $1000 to $2000 starting.

But at this time I got what I could afford on Craig's list .

Brand new Schwinn Varsity CF, enrty updrade, 14 speed Alum/Carbon fiber. Light and fast. Talked the big guy down to $250.00. I don't think he did much cycling or any workouts.

This is a 22lb bike and I changed front derailleur to Tegras. Shifts smooth as butter and super quiet.

Stops on a dime. Egg beater pedals. I do need to change the seat and get a CF seat post.

I have no complaints. I'm a beginner in cycling and it's an upgrade after 2 months of training on 30lb road bike. I didn't realize what a clunker I was riding until now. Such a difference and this a lower end bike. I can imagine the better bikes.
