Someone at UBP on Saturday was having big problems changing out some dry
rotted tires on a Schwinn MTB/hybrid that had been donated. Come to find out
(after repeatedly trying to fit any size decimal or fraction 26" on there)
that corrosion on the rim was hiding a little stamped "650B" mark on it.
The cheapest 650B tire on harris is $25 and i'm not sure the bike shop we
get our parts from would be any less expensive. The bike is in great
condition other than the tires but $50 is about what we would sell it for.
Should we swap the 650B rims for 26's? I would hate for someone to ruin a
tire and have to wait a week for something to get ordered online or at a
Here's my question to the group....What do you do with perfectly usable
oddball bikes/parts that aren't particularly cool or collectable? Think the
"fancy parts" thread of last year but with solid stuff that sits around
