    Just when I don't need or want any more bikes, I find these at can't leave prices. Trek 520 and Pro tour were found during a road trip and expedition this morning. Got a call from an old bike contact asking me if I wanted an old expedition for $120 bucks, how can you say no to that?

    I don't think the bikeE really needs a suspension as the ride is really quite nice... put it to work today and with a few more trips to the bottle depot I will have paid for the bike.





    I swapped the pedals and got the cockpit arranged to my liking as well...



    Nice too that my Moulton and Bike E share the same size front wheel as it will only take a few minutes to swap in the Moulton's generator equipped wheel and light should I find I want / need that.

    Came across this '86 Ross at a thrift shop in Door County for a song.
    Rebuilt, including new Panaracer Paselas.
    The first time I rode it I got whistled at.

    the one with suspension is the RX model. Which, from my understanding is a light off-road model.

    Man, that Ross is hot. Love the brakes on that one and the color. I also had to remove the decal adhesive from my chrome Mt. Hood, what a pain.

    Nice looking Ross!! If you want to lighten it up some, change the stem. They weigh as much as the frame almost.,,,,BD

    Kijiji find, this Norco Bigfoot with a cool splash paintjob for 25$. A lot of superficial rust, looks like it's been left outside a lot, but should clean up pretty well I think.

    Nice sized frame, Good fit ? What's the plans for it? What place did this bike have in the Norco line up ?

    Replacing some steel with alloy parts might bring the weight down and get the rust out if you want to go that route.

    Seatpost as pictured fits me, so that might make the frame a tad small, but definitely rideable. I'm torn right between making it my winter commuter, or putting drops on it for some gravel grinding. Can't seem to find old Norco catalogs online, but as far as I (I'm 25) can remember, the bigfoot was the mid-range hardtail bike in norco's line up.

    It has Exage rear/front ders and cantis, biopace chainrings (how are those?), and rapidfire shifters. Tange 1000 tubing. Decent stuff. The rear der hanger is pretty badly bent though, I'm hoping to be able to straighten it out. Worst case I'll make it SS. Or, I have a friend who does passable tig work, might be able to hack something.

    My budget's pretty limited right now for this one, so I'll switch out only what's needed, but I'll see what I can find for parts.

    1988 Cannondale SM1000 "Red Shred" - 22" frame (woohoo!). Most of the Deore XT bits are gone unfortunately but some (the u-brake and headset) remain. Plenty of beausage, formerly festooned with reflective stickers and a too small seatpost....but I dig the paint scheme and the size and the rear dropout/hanger are pristine. A nice winter project.

    I scored a cool vintage MTB today as well. A ginormous (23") Raleigh Elkhorn, PO says it's a 1985 model, which looks about right from preliminary research online. With seat and stem jacked up like that, I feel like an 8-year-old kid who snuck his big brother's new bike out of the garage for a quick joyride. Possible drop bar conversion in its future, if I can find an appropriate stem (21mm diameter? Is that right?) I definitely don't need the stem up that high, but a little more stretched forward would be nice.



    Paint and decals pretty well preserved for 29 years old, but some pretty bad chipping on the fork, and some paint swapping that will rub out OK. The guy I bought it from has done some wheel truing for me in the past and had it Craigslisted at a nice price, just a Benji. The wheels are nice and true


    "Mountain Tour" seems like a good general description, with the loooong wheelbase, touring-style Sakae Half+Granny kinda crank. 50/44/30 with Suntour XC Sport derailleurs, Suntour thumbies riding up on that crazy slingshot mounted handlebar.


    Raleigh branded everything else, tube set, pedals, fork, rims (also branded Araya, but still) hubs, sealed BB...

    Today must be Mountain bike day. Picked up a repairable Raleigh Rocky 19" from the late 80s and a similar aged Norco Cherokee for a package price of $15.
    The Raleigh looks like it was a decent bike with Exage 300 group and 4130 tubing. The Norco is more my frame size but Hi-ten and rusty and perhaps the heaviest bike I've ever lifted. The only unique item on it is the MX alloy brakes.

    this is one of my favorite threads, but it's been unusually quiet going on a week now, so here's my effort to give it some life. a recent CL pickup for one Ben Franklin ... just happened to see it posted at lunchtime only a few miles away ... serendipity. pictured as purchased ... 1991, full 105, STB, and very clean.

    The group alone is worth twice that or more if clean. My favorite group pretty much. I like it better than 600 and DA, even.,,,,BD

    I came across a 1990/1991 Schwinn Crisscross for $20 a few weeks ago from a guy who was cleaning out the garage prior to a divorce settlement. It was dirty and had a bit of surface rust on the bright parts, a broken rear derailleur, a mangled head badge, and normal signs of wear. Iowegian graciously sent me a replacement RD and 3speedslow sent a head badge. There are no "before pix" because other than general clean-up and bearing maintenance, nothing much was needed. The FD cage was bent, but I sort of have that back in shape (well nearly).

    Anyway, it is back together and I've been riding it around the neighborhood (with pockets full of tools) on test rides. I had some chain jump in the 2 smallest rear cogs due to a stiff link in the old chain. That worked out over time, but I'm replacing the chain anyway. I put riser bars and friction shifters on it because I like them. It's almost ready to go. I'll probably drop the seat and stem a bit and let my wife have a try.

    Oh, I slapped a pair of fenders on it due to wet roads - that's why there are spikey fender stays.
