    To eBay or not to eBay?

    as I just bought my wife a new bike, I realized she has a bike taking up space that has probably not been ridden in YEARS.....as such, is it worth putting on ebay? I doubt my wife would ever consider a single speed but I guess I could convert it just for fun....but then again, perhaps I could sell it to pay for my new green Hope Lever upgrade on my new build

    pretty cool bars now that I look at them....probably circa 1990 Specialized Hardrock Sport

    Now that I think about it, ecause it is in such good shape/working order, I will probably just give it to Goodwill instead

    Yeah, Goodwill is easiest, or Craig's List if you want to try for a local sale.

    I bought that same bike used at a local shop for $99. It's going to cost you $50 just to ship it.

    Wow there's some bling in that bike! Mine is going to get all jealous, it was just built up from extra parts lying around. Although, confess, you want my green polka dotted bash guard.

    You see that high stem? You see the rack mounts on the rear? You see how everything else seems to be in working condition (save for the flat rear tire)? That bike, my friend, is screaming out for a set of dirt drop bars and slick tires, to be ridden around town and such.

    Go for it!
