    This bike is good for a small person or child-young teen for sport
    riding, entry level jr. racing or sport touring.

    Description: Terry Prism, 17 ½ " frame, fits 4'8- 5'0 +/-. 14 speed
    road bike, drop handle bars, index shifting, bar end shifters, 24"
    front wheel. This bike although from circa 1990 appears to be hardly
    used. I bought it for my daughter from a lady in Kentucky through the
    Terry classifieds. We used it for two, week long bike trips, plus some
    training rides for each tour. (See the great picture of my daugher with
    her Prism). The previous owner hardly used it and the chain rings are
    hardly worn. When I got it, I gave the bike a complete tune-up and
    replaced all of the cables and housings, tires and tubes and installed
    the bar end shifters and new bar tape, about $125 in parts alone. I
    must say that this bike looks fabulous- it's kind of a dark baby blue
    with white trim; white lettering, bar tape, white brake hoods and white
    cable housing and bottle cage, quite a classic. My favorite part are
    the brakes, which are shimano exage that are painted in a dusky blue
    that matches the frame nicely. In my garage I have 9 bikes for my
    family and this bike is my favorite.

    The components are a shimano unique mix from Dura Ace to STX. Only the
    spd pedals don't match in color It's not perfect, in fact there are
    some scrapes and rust spots on the frame. I'd call it a 7/ 10
    condition, just because of the paint. Mechanically it's a 9/10, but
    realize that this is the older component style. You can see pictures of
    the bike, and even do a slide show, or I can email the pictures.

    I'll have the bike professionally packed and shipped by my local
    LA,CA bike shop.
