Schwinn Moab 2007


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys


I've got a mate who's had his Schwinn Moab 2007 lying in the garage for over 18 months (having a baby might have had something to do with it). I've offered to buy it off him, although we both not too sure what I should give him for it. What do you guys reckon, 5/5.5k?







...looks like it needs a good service as well.

Wezzo, if it been lying around for a while it will need a good service.


Maybe you can get him down to under R5K and then use that money for a service.


I dont know if that is rust or dirt on the chain.


Wjay kind of riding do you want to do ? Since you might need to spend some money on SPD type pedals.


Hope this helps

Thanks for the info Slowbee.


I haven't seen the bike in person but he says it's dirt. He has also offered to throw in the spd pedals as well although does say one of them is bent - so I might have to buy a new set there. Intend to use it for trail riding.

if you are buying a bike 2nd hand a bent SPD is useless. It shouldnt form part of the bargain.


If you havent seen the actual bike, I would go see it before you set a price and pay for it.


You will also need to check the brakes, especially if its been standing for so long.


I agree with Di you need to offer him less than 5K, try 4K and see what happens.

Size? and what's the location of the bike?


Not too sure on the size, the bike's currently in Schweizer-Reineke will be a testing ride to get it back.

Thanks for the help guys. Slowbee, yeah I'm definitely going to have a look at at it before I buy it - he's up in Joburg this weekend, so we'll see.
