Nah, they're specially designed touring forks so you have extra room (even with fenders) to mak sure you can fit your extra waterbottle beneath the downtube and make sure you don't have toe strike even with the largest of feet.

Yeah, I've had to assist in a couple of fork transplants at the coop
for bikes that looked a lot like that one......when I ask if they've
been curb jumping, the answer is, "Yes, but I won't do it again."

Which may or may not be true, I guess..........

Bianchi road bike - $750 (gatineau)

Date: 2012-08-01, 3:39PM EDT

This bike is german made in 1967, it has been fully restored except the frame. Looking to trade for something interesting . Make an offer
Location: gatineau
it's ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests
PostingID: 3177418266
German made Bianchi? Uh... Hmm.
Also "fully restored except the frame" does not sound very "fully" restored, and there's no photos.

This ad is full of wacky!

Dark pictures. Reversed images. Misread bike model name. Crappy background with cable receptacle hanging out of the wall.

Mens Fuji Pasadena Road bike.

It may be a hot mess but for $450 American I might have gone for it. for a decent TSX frame, and some other OK parts it doesn't seem that bad

Single rear brake set-up? WHY? All that extra cable for a worse brake?

Peugot Record Du Monde Road bike -$69 (Kirkland)
Date: 2012-08-17, 8:46PM PDT

This bike is from the 70's or 60's. Classic 10 speed road bike. I'm not a size man, but it's a bit too high for me and I'm 5'8. In fair shape. I have replaced the hard seat with a softer cushioned seat. Call or text: 347-744-8000.
-----------------------

$69?
"... not a size man... 5'8". In fair shape..."

just come out and say it, man!

Will for $1600 you get the luxury of poorly built rod brakes that are only a 100 years out of date. Plus based on the pic I bet this guy has more than one available.

Good thing his most valuable possessions are permanently attached. It would suck to lose your "tool kit" and have to take out a CL ad begging for it to be returned. And since he's a giant I bet a lot of folks would be less likely to give such a "large tool" back...
