Well, it's headache-inducing for sure, but I wouldn't be too quick to flag it.

Even idiots should be free to self-expose. This in turn allows the more-sane to give them a wide berth.

Re: The Colnago TT
At least he seems to have switched the brake shoes so you don't end up with quadruple ejecting brake pads the first time you hit the brakes.

Someone made a best offer on it. I wonder how much it was for.

What you guys said!

I thought it was an interesting bike - a model not sold in the US, but I just had to go back for a second look. No wonder it was ridden 600 miles in 12 years (more or less, probably more). The fender rattle alone would drive me nuts. With better pix, more may be revealed.

I'm guessing it is the "Schamano" drivetrain.

Not only is "Schamano" funny, "hybred" just tickled my funny-bone.

This ad pops up periodically (for months & months now). I wish someone would buy it and make it go away. I think that it is unlikely for the seller to drop the price. BTW, I have a used one for free if you pay postage.

Maybe there's some extra value because this is NOS, but I doubt the NIB part is all that helpful:
