Tag Sale Freebie

I picked up the Columbia Women's mountain bike at a tag sale last weekend. The price tag said $5 for it and I was thinking about buying it just for the parts when the seller said just take it. I offered her the money but she wouldn't take it.

When I got home, I checked it out. I put air in the tires and tightened the brakes. The front derailler was frozen so I removed the shifter, added new grips, and cleaned it up. I ended up giving it to a neighbor because she said she was looking for a bike to ride with her kids and what was I going to do with this? Turns out I might have sold it on the CList but it was better giving it away.

I really like the index thumb shifters. I might have to try those on the next project build.
