Comment by chillikebab — July 18, Good condition i have owned it since it was new. Do you know what it would be worth? Comment by Tina Bachmann — March 20, Your bike is the same as mine: Did you ever changed the bottom bracket, and if so, is this special threading or standard?
Comment by Yves Ferket — June 8, Thanks for stopping by. Yes, I did swap out the bottom bracket, for a Shimano Sora set.

You're a wannabe South Florida survivalist, so naturally you've made sure the family bomb shelter is sufficiently stocked with bottled water, canned goods, AA batteries, and other basic hurricane supplies.
But honestly, that's not good enough. With the apocalypse almost upon us — Hello, ! Face it — the next couple of centuries are gonna be tough, and you have only days left till the Mayan calendar hits doomsday.
Get some help from the old-timers at Jet's Florida Outdoors. In business since , when worldwide nuclear war seemed inevitable, this store's bushwhacking staffers are exactly the kind of gritty end-of-days experts you need. Then they'll point out the million ways in which you failed to fully imagine the dirty-bombed, zombie-ridden, sci-fi future.

But, hey, it "comes with a piece of Hef's silk pajamas, worn by the man himself! It's becoming increasing difficult to find a good used bookstore.
The only secondhand shops staying alive seem to be next to fast-food joints in minimalls and trade in cheap romance novels. So you have to try extra-hard to find an old-fashioned store with curious out-of-print volumes lining tall shelves, spilling onto the floor, and hiding in nooks and crannies.
