  1. Hey there, I know this is a long shot, but I’m wondering if you could tell me the model of this Steyr bicycle. I think I just bought one like this off of craigslist and am looking for more information about it. Thanks!

    1. Hi Sara, I’m sorry, but I don’t remember a model name at all. I don’t think it has one. It’s a good bike, and considerably lighter than the Trek Belleville that replaced it. The only downside to it was the galvanized spokes and steel rims. The spokes broke, and the rims wouldn’t stop in the wet. New spokes and rims can be had fairly cheaply (the CR-18s are a great value), and any 27.5″/650B wheel will fit, but would need to accept rim brakes.
      Or just ride it happily in dry weather!
