I lied- I told a member here i wouldnt get any more bikes. These were $10 though! They need work- air, chains, cleaned. The blue one is my 2nd baby, named Chuck. She had 2 mountain bikes but i said no because they were in way worse shape than these.

Anyone want to take a stab at thoughts on them?

in other news, now i think i need an intervention!

I had one just like that in the same color too, I gave it to a friend of mine who's been riding it for about 3 years now.

I got the bike for $40, and I fixed it up a bit, put about another $40 into it and some time relubing, adjusting, cleaning and waxing it, making sure typical water entry areas were greased, a lot of small stuff that took several hours, I did ride it but I only rode it once, it seemed like a good bike, but I wasn't a fan of the sloping MTB style fork though there was nothing wrong with the fork just didn't like the looks, but I had my friend in mind when I bought it anyways. But my friend obviously likes it a lot from my conversations I've had with him, and he has no desire to get another bike!
