    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    It's a great looking bike. If it were +-61cm I'd offer to take it off your hands, but it looks a bit smaller than that.

    Did you buy it because you got a great deal or because you just liked it?

    What size is it? If it's smaller than 58cm, and it doesn't work for you, let me know.

    Well I guess its going to be up as soon as I find a value on it its 24 inches (61cm) from BB to the top of the seat tube, and 33 1/2 inches (83.8cm) from the floor to the top of the top tube, let me kow if you need different measurements as I know alot of people measure bikes differently (center of top tube instead of top of top tube)

    If you get less than $300.00 I'll be tremendously surprised.

    I would certainly expect so. Unfortunately, you won't be getting it from me, since the bike is too large by quite a bit.

    I know I sold my 1983 560 for $334. I had not planed to sell it , but to make wife happy I put a price tag on every cycle I had ( except the Gary Fisher she gave me) and sold them off. I thought I had priced the 560 to high for anyone to want it. The person who bought took it on two test rides and then they went to the ATM. I about cried to see it go. It was one of the best rides I have ever owned.

    I think at age 42 I stopped growing a long time ago! I will ride it while I have it, who knows, the last time this happened to me I kept the bike for a little over ten years!

    It is an '88. I had one the same size, but the color was aqua. It was reasonably light, handled well and shifted esp. well- very precise. I believe the frame was True Temper cro moly.
