NASHBAR TOURE M/T – $175 (clifton park)
Good looking tourer. Nashbar makes decent house branded stuff. Worth it if you need a touring bike, and it fits you.
Mountain Bike – $50
Under this awfully titled ad is a Bridgestone MB5. It’s the worst Bridgestone Mountain Bike, but is still much better than most crap that’s out there. Great commuter or around town bike.
Thule hitching post bike rack – $75 (Watervliet, NY)
Not a bike, but Thule makes good stuff. Well worth it.
PANASONIC 58cm road bike w/ 105 – $345 (Albany/Troy)
Great deal for a tall person. Awesome older bike with great parts.
A lot of people I know ask me what bikes to get so I’ll do one of these every once in a while as a public service.
PANASONIC SPORT 500 – $65 (Albany) Not the best bike, but a complete bike and the seller is negotiable.
Jamis Coda Sport 21.5 IN (54 CM) – $250 (Ballston Spa, NY) An actual bike made by a real manufacturer. Flat bar road bikes are really great, too.
2008 Fuji Crosstown 2.0 Like New! – $295 (Saratoga Springs) A bit dorky looking but way solid for someone who needs a good bike from a good manufacturer.
The following two are really awesome and I’d go after them if I had a reason to.
===1988 Trek 1000- $100=== – $100 (Middleburgh) These older Treks are great. A lot of people on the NYC Fixed Gear forum specifically enjoy these for their low price and great value. This is REALLY worth the $100.
Panasonic Team road bike SMALL 51cm/19″ – $250 (Manchester, VT) This thing is awesome. It’s a straight up race quality bike from the 80s. Perfect for that small person you know! This would make a killer girlfriend bike for all the guys out there!
Decent deal for a tall person, 58cm Fuji Track on Craigslist.
