Everyone,

I was wondering if anyone had a spare bike that they are not using because I need a rain bike. I don't like to take my bikes out in the rain, so I decided to ask you guys if you had any available.

Please help me if you can!
Thanks!
Sure. I have a C40 I'm not using. Seriously . . .morrison

I have a 56 cm Scott frame that would make a great beater bike. If you're in the bay area and looking for a frame only.
How's this?tarwheel

Mid-1980s Schwinn LeTour. Red, steel lugged frame with down-tube shifters, 10-speed. Size is a 56 or 57, would have to measure to be sure. It's my wife's old road bike and she hasn't hardly ridden it in the past 15 years. It is still very clean, though, with everything in good working condition, including tires. How does $200, plus shipping sound?

Why not buy a cyclocross bike? If you don't want to spend alot, you can pickup a surly cross check or kona jake the snake for about $1000. Then in the offseason, try a few races. Just a thought.
