    Selling off MW/LW parts in Houston, TX

    I am not posting this in the Classifieds because I don't have individual prices set, because I'd like to move this stuff as a lot. I am in the process of getting out of the buy, restore and resell part of biking. I live south of Houston and I am ready to sell off all my parts. My plan is to...

    Bike Work Stands! Homemade or store bought. What do you have? What have you built? Let's see your ideas.

    Look for a used Park Tool stand, they can be had for less than half of new. Parts are readily available. I have two. I had a cheaper version before these and all it did was wear out quickly and you can't get replacement parts for the the cheaper china ones.

    Schwinn aluminum Panther/Scrambler XL

    The frame is not " high end" but a lot of the parts are! I'd say part it out and it will sell as parts on here, BMX Musuem, Pinkbike, and on eBay.

    Steady Bicycle??

    From my experience the made Taiwan frames are definitely nicer, but it doesn't make them American Classics", :headbang:

    Steady Bicycle??

    I am still curious about Steady bicycles. What I can say is I find it highly annoying that they are marketing themselves as an "American Classic" & "Collectable". How can they even be considered American Classics when they're not even made in the United States, or at least I assume they're not...
