Re: what's your greatest/cheapest score on bikes or parts?
I have a garage literally PACKED with $3-$5 bikes picked up at flea markets. Probably 5-6 dozen in all. This includes aluminum Raleigh Techniums, Fujis, Tamayas, Treks, and other bikes worth thousands. Never paid more that $5. Some with free sign at the roadside.The people getting rid of them had no idea.
I still prefer the Target Magnas for new installs because of standard hardware and no surprises with worn bearings.
