Why doesn't Huffy Make roadbikes anymore?Geddy

I am not looking for a fast bike. I just would like to find a road bike by Huffy or Murray for about $100. How come they don't make them anymore?
They do make road bikes....Niwot

Didn't LeMond and Eric Heiden ride them in the Tour de France?jose_Tex_mex

I am nearly 100% sure that LeMond and team mate Eric Heiden (yes, the gold medalist speed skater) rode them during the Tour de France for Team 7-11.
I guess they didn't suck that bad.

Actually, those bikes were made for 7-11 by Ben Serotta. They were just rebadged as Huffys.

I saw some great road bikes go on ebay for less than a hundred. A schwinn tempo for one and some late 70s bikes in good condition. Take care ~ Ryan

One of my LBS's has this printed on their shop's waterbottles.

Seriously, spend a Saturday hitting yard sales, flea markets, and thrift stores & there's a good chance you'll come away with a much better bike for a lot less than $100. Take a knowledgeable friend with you to help with fit & to check the bike's condition. With the change from the $100 you can buy new tires, cables, etc if needed.
