I reeeely really can't decide between a 7-speed and a 2x7 speed. I'm thinking a 38-48 front with a 13-34 rear could be a very good range.

I'm just catching up on this thread. Lots of good stuff going on. I'm not a terribly serious cyclist. I enjoy it immensely, but I have so many leisure pursuits that I never get too serious or good at any of them. I am a member of Gulf Coast Bicycle Club. It's a great club for anyone. There are some very serious riders that I have no hope of ever being able to hang with. I do some of the moderately spirited group rides on rare occasion. I love the club for its n00b friendliness and the social rides we do.

Thursday evening we met up in Pass Christian MS and rode the new Bay St Louis bridge bike lane into old town Bay St Louis. I saw some old friends and made some new ones. The pace was a pace at which you could carry on a decent conversation. Traffic was very light and allowed side by side riding. It was an easy 20 mile ride.

I found this Trek on the local Craigslist. Can anyone tell me more about it other than its red? That's all the information the ad carried.

Cool man! I give you major props for riding in the NO heat.

Looks like a circa 1990s entry-level Trek when then were made in the USA. Stamped steel components, plastic pedals....heavy and bulletproof. Tune it up, repack the bearings and go.

That bike looks pretty small, 16" at most - I don't remember you being that short. Bad memory on my part?

I'll second the small size. Probably a 16" frame. Good for 5'-5'6" at the most. It also looks to be from the early 90's. My guess is it is a 820 which probaly retailed for less than $200 then. Maybe even $150.

He claims it is 18". That, and red. One of the worst craigslist ads ever. The price is $75. What fits me best is a 17". I'm watching for one for my kid. He's an inch taller then me now and will be able to ride an 18" no problem in a week or two more. He's growing that fast.

IF that's the correct bike, there's no way its 18"

Okay.

I wasn't that excited by it. I'm holding out for a Specialized Hard Rock of recent vintage.

If yer planning on riding off-road, go with Rockhoppers or Stumpjumpers.

LX components or better.

If yer riding around the neighborhood, anything'll work.

No, still have that, but once you ride a KLR, you're a cheap bastidge forever.

Actually, the Rockhoppers aren't that bad. There are several used ones of older vintage locally on CL. I have the patience to wait for the right one.
