Re: who's got the best non bike store bike

Great idea for a thread, wish that I hadn't scavenged all of the good stuff on mine before scrapping them, should have kept a few of them whole.

Nice.  Those were the first real-looking BMX bikes that were around my neighborhood.

I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.

Re: who's got the best non bike store bike

I don't have a Department store bike at the moment, but my buddy has a Royce Union that he always chooses to ride over his better bikes. It kind of looks like a GT Performer rip off with fake Landing Gears. Says he just loves the way it rides and feels.

80's Raleigh Reflex
I know Raleigh had a alot of bike shop quality bikes....but this sure in the hell wasn't one of them. lol
But it had the semi hard to find blue lettering Dominator on it so it had to come home with me. big_smile

Re: who's got the best non bike store bike

I kinda love the looks of this Spalding SPX 3000 in my herd.

There are a few other lower quality rides with this one that look really sharp and I will try to show them later. I meet quite a few people that say they will not buy department store crap and leave these bikes behind and I am glad to bring them home and add to the stable. yikesbig_smilelol

Here's my Team Murray, I just need to find a wheelset - I'm thinking Lesters?

Having the project is what makes me happy, finishing it isn't something I think about.
