When it comes to buying and selling used bikesit pays— literally —to know how much a bike is worth. It's always worthwhile to do a little research beforehand. Go on eBay or Craigslist and search for the bike you're selling or interested in buying to find out what those bikes are selling for to give you an idea of price range.

Should I buy a Vintage Schwinn 10 speed for $100?
The old song goes "the best things in life are free". I have had two bikes which I found in the dumpster rubbish bin here in Australia. With some time and elbow grease, and sometimes a little bit of money you can restore a bike which was destined for the dump into something that is fast and fun to ride around. These bikes are commonly thrown out, can be converted into a single speed or easily renovated into a working bike.

Some might say that the mountain bike revitalised the bike industry when it arrived in the late eighties. The MTB was a huge shot in the arm for an ailing bike industry. However, at the same time as stimulating bike sales, it put the final nail in the coffin of a bike style that dominated for over a decade — in the US, it was termed the Ten Speed — in the UK is was just called a Racer. So much so that many survive to this day — hand-me-down machines serving out life sentences in the hands of students looking for a cheap and funky way of getting around.
