    Anyone heard of John Salisbury?

    Apparently he made frames out of Fort Collins, CO.

    I hope I'm doing this right,
    I'm helping my friend look for a bike and we found one on the local Craigslist that fits her but I've never heard of this maker nor do my searches come up with anything and I thought you guys might know somehow. It's lugged and has Shimano Tri-Color group but has a Ringle front hub/wheel and the seller is asking $300.

    As far as I can tell the bike has butted tubing, fairly light but the paint nor the lugwork look spectacular, to be honest a little hamfisted but my friend says out of all the "generic CL" bikes she's tried out, this is one of the stiffer and faster ones but the bike needs a tuneup and won't shift.

    Is the group itself worth at least half? I don't want her to overpay but as long as it rides well, I think it'd be a good investment and she can upgrade down the line.

    Well now, I've heard mixed reviews about that too.

    John Salisbury is my dad. He made that frame in our garage and painted it in a shed in our back yard. He made bikes for a lot of people and had a national trials champion that rode his frames. Everyone I know who had one of his frames loved it. I love mine.
