A friend and I are looking for used bikes. We've both ridden some, but not a lot. We will be riding the Eklutna lake trail this summer, and just some general trail riding in the Willow/Talkeetna area, nothing extreme at all.
I've had a Schwinn for 20 years for riding pavement, but since moving to AK I've not ridden at all.
We aren't looking for anything fancy or expensive. I'd like to be $400 or less.
I'm 5' 10" and 180 lbs, she's 5'3" and about 135.
I have no idea what size, brand, really dont know what to look for in a used bike. I've looked on Alaskalist and Craigslist, a lot to choose from.
I'm out of state for a couple weeks but would like to find something by mid June.
Do most of the bike shops sell used bikes?
I saw a pair of Scott Vantage 1.0 on Alaskalist for $400, looked like nice bikes.
Appreciate it if anyone can throw out some names of decent bikes.
