My husband came home with the biggest smile on his face! We've been decluttering with Craig's List classifieds lately. Yesterday we sold a Giant bike for $40. We had bought it for $5, only to find the frame was too small. Today I suggested he stop by Salvation Army after dropping off evaluations across town. As he walked in, a worker was wheeling out this Trek 720 Multi Track bike. The price? $40. After complimenting his bargain-finding prowess, I ran inside to Google. According to this Craig's List posting, the Trek 720 originally sold for around $600. Now my husband has a top quality bike for our original $5 seed money!
(By the way, he knows it's technically a girl's frame, but the only difference is that the bar is slanted instead of straight--and for this price, he says he's man enough to ride it!)
