Bikes

Greetings,

I broke my leg and bike last year on a ride. My one true love a Trek 600.

Now I need a new bike and they are almost impossible to be found. Note to self, stock up on TP and bikes for the next apocalypse.

I did stumble upon a site bworks in st louis. They are selling a Trek 6000 for 200. Having been faithful to my one only bike for so many years I know nothing now about shopping for a new bike
Do they seem reasonsble for the price?
The say they do not know the year, vut it seems to be about 10 tp 15 years old.

So you are going for a very different kind of bike this time around with the 6000. Hard to estimate value without pics. For $200 I would expect a nice bike. I took a look at bworks online- their pricing looks reasonable in general although I did not see the bike you referred to. Good luck!

Gone

You are correct, there are no bikes anywhere!

I went to a bike shop and they showed me something called Gravel?
Sorry for posting in this section it might not be the right one. I would give anything for my old Trek back.

This is the right section if you want a bike similar to your old Trek 600 which is a very fine bike. Old bikes can be found on craigslist, facebook marketplace, etc.
You could start a new thread talking about your old bike and telling people where you live and what size bike you need. They'll find you similar quality bikes.

I have no idea whether this is your size but here's a Trek 1983 620; the price is high but these are generally negotiable:

Thanks

This is like dating after a long term marriage. I am quite afraid of riding a racer actually and until COVID, I was using Divvy bikes on the weekend.

I need a hybrid now, or maybe a tricycle.
Thanks y'all for the help.

The bike was a mangled crumpled mess. As was my foot, and subsequently my entire body is out of alignment. Oddly enough the handlebars remained intact. I still have those.

Just buy your old bike, if that’s what you really liked. Two 80s Trek 600s and one 630 on eBay right now. Way cheaper then a comparable new bike, this is the CV forum, get the old bike.
