WANTED:   28" wheel, Raleigh, etc., roadster posted by: Dale Sutthoff on 11/30/2002 at 6:13:04 PM
Years ago I had a Raleigh with extra large wheels, 28 or 30" I think. Best ever as I am pretty tall and felt the larger size fit better. Are any bikes made today with the larger wheel size? Or should I be looking for only that model as a used bike. This is just for touring and general exercise. I just turned 65 and finally have a little time on my hands.

WANTED:   beater bikes posted by: lincoln on 11/25/2002 at 6:05:32 PM
Anyone near Waltham, MA or, even better, Wolfeboro, NH with one
or two old beater bikes with sturdy frames and fairly wide tires?
For riding on a sand/gravel path and general neglect. If two bikes,
one must be women's frame. For reasonably tall riders. Budget is quite
low right now. Thanks

P.S. Probably good to send an email as well as a list response as I don't
keep up.
