Bit of a longshot maybe, but if anyone is in the Chicagoland area, I am selling two bikes that are free to any mags who want them. Both are 100% ready to ride although could use a tune up. I use to work at a bike shop and converted both bikes myself.

Size s 26" hardtail:

This is a pretty small bike - most appropriate for someone under 5'7", so I'm thinking it'd go to a junior. I converted this from a 2x and iirc I didn't buy a new cassette, just a new RD and shifter, so the shifting on the very highest cog isn't very precise.

Size 54/56 steel singlespeed:

Pretty nostalgic. I converted the bike when I worked at a bike shop, fun to go around town on.

Have to pickup locally, western Chicago suburbs.
