I found myself in need of a bike, but buying a new one is out of the question. So two possibilities remain:
- buy a used one for a low price;
- fix one of my old bikes.
But here comes another problem (and my question): how old is too old? I mean, apart from comparing the price, how do I know that fixing a bike is just a waste of time and money because it's simply too old?
What should I consider for changing my choice from "fix it" to "buy it"? Rust? Other things?
