The pictures in the post with the USA sticker is my son's bike. Sounds like he has a 1992. He paid $50 for it in rough shape and invested another $50 to get it up to snuff. I think it's a pretty good...

Yes! I pushed for the Trek (simply because it was a nice old USA made bike and already on site), but he wanted something new.

My son bought the Giant and it's a nice bike. It had lots of shift issues that weren't mentioned by the seller and he didn't thoroughly test. But... it's an old bike. We'll fix it.

I think it's on...

It really doesn't matter what I think of course. But my take on it is that the Trek may be a more solid bike. It's also made in USA. Just my opinion. He's wanting to buy the Giant.

I think of suspension as a good way to add weight (I don't care for suspension since I don't go off roading). But... supposedly the Giant is under 30 lbs. I'd be shocked if this is truly the case.

Why? What's wrong with old bikes? Not everyone cares about disk brakes, better suspension, or special shifting mechanisms.., at least I don't. Am I missing something else?

I'm plenty happy with...

90s Trek Antelope 830 (USA made) better than a 90s Giant ATX980?

My oldest is considering buying his younger brother's USA Trek 830 (at $80 which I consider a good price). He's also considering buying a Giant ATX 980 for $100. I'm telling him, that the USA Trek is...

Looks like Taiwan and Giant started taking the USA manufacturers by storm in 1980 (Chicago Schwinn's strike). But I didn't expect Trek to be Taiwanese. I was surprised to see this. I guess I don't...

lol. I don't care about the name on the side. For that matter, the bike doesn't even need paint. It just has to ride half way decent without a wheel or chain coming off.

Do I really need an expensive bike?

I'm an occasional rider (trails mostly paved sometimes hilly terrain). I see non big box store brand bikes (Trek, GT, etc) on FB Marketplace and CL in the $75-200 range at times and when I look them...
