As for trading the bike, here are the specs on the Specialized bike, coming from me (not a specialist):
It is red and black with front shocks and 27 gears. It seems to ride and shift right, and I just got a tune-up done on it. The pedals are designed for clip on bike shoes. It has a normal amount of wear and tear, and the only real problems I can see is that the little thing which tells you what gear you're in on the right handle is broken and it needs a new rear tire. Otherwise this bike seems like it's in great shape., From talking to several people, I estimate this bike is worth at least $275. Want to trade?
