You can use any thumb shifter with a friction mode. They pop up on eBay periodically at pretty decent prices.

WANTED:   Info about my mountain bike posted by: Eve Stein on 5/7/2002 at 3:10:41 PM
I have a mountain bike that my cousin found me in 1983 or 1984.
It has 18 speeds and 24" wheels. The only marking on the tube
says 'CW ATB.' My cousin worked in a bike shop and charged me
$400 for the bike, which he told me was 10% over his cost.
It must be well-made because I recently took it in to have
the derailleur replaced and the guy at the bike shop said it
was a 'really cool bike.' Any ideas? TIA.

WANTED:   Scott AT-4's anyone? posted by: Dave on 5/4/2002 at 11:34:59 PM
Can anyone help me locate a set of Scott AT-4 handlebars? They're the mountain bike bars that curve around to the front in a one-piece design. They are discontinued, but I know there must be an unused set lingering in someone's garage or attic. Will pay a reasonable price and postage. Any help greatly appreciated.

MISC:   The feeling ain't there sometimes posted by: ChristopherRobin2@starmail.com on 4/20/2002 at 5:59:19 PM
It was ten dollars and I passed over it. It just doesn't turn me on and I didn't like any part of it.
It was a fine bicycle and I should have gone for it. A pal chewed me out, told me I was stupid not to get it. He's right too!
It was a Bridgestone M.T.B. with alloy rims and a Shimano 600 derailer. Great shape, excellent price for whole bike. Somebody else grabed it, I'm sure!

The fact that many people are stupid about bikes and don't ride or don't care for a particular bike or type of bike is a great thing to folks who are in the know about it.

Yup! It was gone when I checked. I hope whoever bought it was happy, they got a whale of a deal.

MISC:   Stumpjumper posted by: darryl on 4/12/2002 at 1:51:41 PM
Few years ago I picked up a 1988 stumpjumper for $35. Restored to riding condition with addition of new rear U-brake, cables and brake levers. Rides like the champ it is. Frame is a little scratched up but has original Merz Magenta/DiNucci Green paint job. Has Deore group, Biopace crankset and index shifting. I also have the Specialized 1988 bike catalog which displays this bike in same paint job.Although a little heavy has a great feel on road and off-road. What is a bike like this worth?

It sounds pretty similar to my 1988 Schwinn KOM-10. Assuming your Sj has good double-butted CrMo tubing, it may be worth $200-300, based on recent KOM-10 sales on eBay.

FOR SALE:   Single-speed mountain bike posted by: Jeff Thomas on 3/30/2002 at 1:59:54 AM
I have a rare survivor- it's an old (70) Schwinn Mt. Tamalpais 'bomber' bike with a Bendix coaster hub. The wheels are steel, with 120 guage spokes. It came from Mill Valley, at the bottom of Mt. Tam. I have no idea what it's worth, and it can't be 'documented', but it's real. Bikes like this started Mt bikes in Marin County in the '70's. Anyone interested? E-mail to jbt56@hotmail.com. Also interested in talking to those who remember these.

MISC:   Peugeot Sun Valley posted by: Bryant on 3/28/2002 at 5:30:44 PM
There is a Peugeot Sun Valley Mountain Bike at the local thrift shop for my buddy. it is missing some parts, and I figure it would caost about $50 to fix up. It is an 18 speed, sturdy (raed heavy) frame, chrome wheels Shimano SIS shifters and derailleurs. I didn't know Peugeot made mountain bikes, and I can find nothing on the net about the Sun Valley. Anyone ever hear of it and is it worth fixing??

             Peugeot Sun Valley posted by John E on 4/2/2002 at 8:06:44 PM
Until someone stole it, my son has a 24"-wheeled 18-speed Peugeot US Express mountain bike, made in Taiwan, almost definitely by Giant. I suspect the Sun Valley is a newer adult version of pretty much the same thing. If it fits you well and if you want a good beater bike or a casual use trail/mountain bike, go for it, but do not invest alot of money, time, or emotion into it. The one redeeming grace of these rebranded Giants is that they use ISO-standard (not French or Swiss!) BBs and headsets.

           RE:  Peugeot Sun Valley posted by Robert on 4/16/2002 at 5:26:59 PM
John, So they are made by Giant? I am assuming that is good. I don't know anything about Giant so what range are these in? Like GT MTB quality or???
I got a Peugeot MTB a year or so ago for 20.00 and am rebuilding it presently. I has "standard" bottom bracket.
Came with Sachs derailleurs and steel dbl. front crank chainring.
Upgrading to Suntour derailleurs, Shimano triple crank, slicks, fenders, Blackburn rack, black epoxy type paint done by a friend. When I blasted the old paint at work, brazing looked really nice at BB . Head was lugged. I am looking forward to getting it together in a couple of weeks.
Sorry to ramble on.
