How should I assess the condition of a 2nd hand bike?Chuck Jones
Aug 21, 2001 3:36 PM
As a rookie to road bikes, I need help in determining the shape a 2nd hand bike might be in. I plan to carefully inspect the condition of a used bike, then ride it for fit, feel, performance. Is there anything I should look at especially closely? How does one determine the shape a steel frame might be in? Etc, and thanks for your thoughts.
