View Full Version : Looking for bike for friend
I have a friend who's looking for an inexpensive Mtn bike. He's about six foot tall.
By inexpensive, I mean inexpensive. He's got a wife and a kid and a mortgage, and I really want him to be able to go riding with me and some friends. Just something that he can use to ride down at Zilker or whatever. If you know anyone who's got something, let me know. I can fix it up, if needed.
Are the pawn shops OK places to look, or do they just usually have junk?

How much is he looking to spend? I'm looking at selling my hardtail soon, and getting a full suspension.
Just let me know. PM me or whatever if you need to.

call 680-6957 this guy has a univega in my garage lx/manitou
under 350.00....he'd love to unload it...it would be a great starter!
Thanks, Chimp. I may call him, but unfortunately, $200 is the upper limit of what this guy can spend due to aforementioned variables, but if you think he'd let it go for that, let me know.

Sorry, can't go that low. Spent more than that on upgrades in the last 2 months. But if I hear of anything else I'll let you know.

I saw an all ridged 92 performance MTN Bike advertised in the Austin360.com classifieds for 99.00. itís worth a look. I ride an all ridged Performance M305 right now and itís tough. Works good, lasts long time. At least till I have the $ in July to upgrade. Iím thinking Giant Rainer. I too have a wife and kids.
