Just going to build it into a single speed for the girl friend or sell it I guess.









The only damage on the bike that I could find. If I convert it, that won't matter anyways since it'll get new wheels.

Single speed ? Why not add a rack and some fenders, tune up and let her have a nice commuter ? Of course maybe she is into the single speed thing...I dunno. Either way, for $10 bucks I say great find !

Cheers,

Joe

Well, now the bike is too small for her. Guess this just turned into a flip.

If this bike is too small, bad news: 99% of the mixtes out there are this size. Mixtes are somewhat difficult to find, larger mixtes are just about impossible to find. While I have found about 20 mixtes over the last few years, I have yet to have a large one.

As is, you should be able to get $50 to $75 for it, fully refurbished, $175 to $200. This is in a good/average market, in a red hot market, adjust up.

I sold one just like it last year (although mine had alloy rims). To the average buyer, I do not see much difference price wise between the alloy and steel rim versions. Its more about aesthetics.

Now is a great time to sell it, you should attract the back to school crowd. I sold two Pug mixtes to a pair of college roommates. Back to school time is the best time of year sales wise for me. YMMV.
