A few years ago I spotted this old bike with another being thrown out... been sitting in the neighbors garage for years.
It has old city bike permits from the early 70s... couldn't see it going to the can so I took it.

I put a new seat on it and new tires... cruise the hood with my kids on it now.

Bought a Raleigh M8000 a while ago with these Spynergy wheels on it. I paid $75 for the whole bike with $300+ worth of wheels. I put them on my ProFlex and Voila!... All the bike I couldn't afford when I was in college for a mere $275!! I figured it would have been $5600 worth of bike adjusted for inflation. Carbon Girvin fork, Kooka cranks, Control Tech stem and seat post...I couldn't be happier. Of course now, I'm fat and old, so I just putt around on it. Very Happy

There was one in our craigslist recently. On a Fuji, I think...for $175 for the whole bike.

*edit*
Still there!

Got my son his first real mountain bike for his birthday. Turns out the back seat is just big enough for a 20" bike.

Awesome. How old is he? My daughter is almost 5, and I can't wait to get her on a mountain bike.

I used to build middle weights, funny how you get stuck on something and they all look the same.

My "vintage" Trek 1000. Bonded aluminum. Purchased it new in 1988. Since getting back into cycling in 2011, I've replaced just about every component. The only original parts left on the frame are the seat post bolt and cable guide on the underside of the bottom bracket. Currently running SRAM Force 2x10, FSA SLK carbon crank, Charge (Fabric) saddle, Fabric water bottles and a bunch of Ritchey bits. Weighs in around 18.5 pounds with pedals.
