    Arrow “Specialised” road bike

    Hey guys, I purchased this for $680 (I think, thereabouts)around 6 years ago. It had done around 400km and the guy upgraded to a full carbon bike.
    I also have this bike rack which might be handy and also a very nice bike pump.

    The tyres are dead flat on the bike and will definitely need to be replaced.
    Has been sitting in the shed for many years. I used to ride it to work.

    I’m sure the gears will need to be tinkered with to make it “go good” or replaced.

    $300 for everything due to the age

    Are you after a good Road Bike @Philipo ? We have a brand new Carbon Fibre framed one that we got our son at Xmas that he has never ridden as he gave up road cycling in January!!...the little bugger! Its a TREK or Specialised I think by memory and we were looking at just a bit over a $1000 I think. I can look at the specs if you are interested....

    @Philipo, not just a scope whore eh - that is one left field bit of MTB history you have there. Glad you looked after it. Make sure it never gets buried in the back of the shed - that is worth displaying in a museum or bike shop once you have had your fill

    Cheers mate, funny you should say that, It's currently on display at "Crank it" cycles here in Palmy, I brought it from Steve ( then a salesman at Pedal Pushers ) in 1999 & now it's in his own shop
