Triumph Ravine



It says Ravine Triumph.

The owner is willing to sell it for $50 with no problems. It looks pretty light, and maybe has hybrid tires but I'm not sure.

What do you think the value of it is? Also if someone could explain that odd chain, it would be greatly appreciated.
If you have no idea what its worth, you can let me know how much you would pay for this bike

Thank you

Edit; omg its not an odd chain hnggg its the back derailleur, I'm totally mechanically challenged. It just means its a speed where the chain is looser, right?

It looks light compared to what? It looks to me like a pretty basic bike with bolt on steel wheels.


If it is ready to ride trouble free for the next year $50 probably isn't a bad price for an around town bike. I wouldn't recommend it as a commuter though.



Chain looks fine to me.

It's about as low-end as you can get. Looks to be a wal-mart level bike. $50 would be pushing it, I'd try for $40. With steel rims and stamped steel brake calipers, the brakes will not work very well even if set up correctly. Also looks like a no-name rear derailleur so it probably won't shift too great either.
