Mid 1980s, no idea on model (picture is too small.) It's at least above the bottom barrel though, with DT shifters, forged crankset, dropouts w/RD hanger.

Extremely tall frame. Are you 6' 6"?

No, but I do ride bike from 23 to 25 in size. I am 6'3".
I was looking at the DT shifters too, plus I can ride that size. I am looking for another beater bike. The seller said make him an offer, then he said $150. I told him I would look at it, and IMO, if good, I would offer $100.

This is one I am on today, and I ride this in comfort too.

This is my beater bike..

You can see the size is right their with that Fuji..

If the seller agrees, I will offer $100 and go as high as $120.

Thanks for the feed back.

Espree? Looks like a 25" frame to me. I think it's OK deal at $150

$150 is a good price, but not as a 3rd or 4th bike...

Ok, so it'll fit you. I agree, $150 is a fair price. It would be a pretty good deal at $100.

+1

I understand having a collection (I have 4 bikes right now) but I try to vary it a bit more... I have a road bike, a fixed gear, a MTB, and a commuter. But who am I to judge, nothing wrong with having 3 road bikes

Well, somebody else got it. The bike was my fit, and I guess I should have told him I would take it. Somebody got to him before he got off!! . I had called him about 11 am. He lives in the same area I do. He told me he was at work and would be off at 4. He had his phone number on the ad. From the way I see somebody called and gave him his asking price. That would have been my beater bike, so I am not too disappointed. I know for a fact, on good deals, you got to be fast and alert.

Thanks to all for the feedback on this.
