Are hardtail mountain bikes out of style? A month ago I bought an old Trek antelope 800 at a garage sale for $10, and all it needs is a tune up. Yeah it's probbably 20 year old but it's so fun to ride ! Now I spotted a Giant Iguana in even better shape at a thirft shop for $36. I'm buying it for a friend that needs a good bike instead of a walmart death bike. I'm amazed to see it such good shape for under $40 ( not that I'm complaining) I'm personally not a big fan of shocks because its one more part that needs to be maintained/replaced, and who needs shocks on a bike that spends most of its time on pavement? If this keeps up it's going to be like it was a few years ago when the nicer road bikes of the 70's were showing up at thift stores for practically nothing - so is this the case, where ppl are upgrading from their simpler mountain bikes for newer ones with shocks and disc brakes, or am I just on a lucky streak?
