BTW: Nice bike!

California bike are the worst pitted bikes in the country that airborne salt puts all those pock marks in all those anodized parts

At this time of year in the Midwest.... I at least... sort of envy Californians and the Californianess of their bicycles.

Bull feathers!!


Maybe in the beach cities there's a corrosion problem, but that represents a very small part of California's total area. There's a far larger part of the state that's nowhere near the evil corrosive vapors of salt water, where rust is almost non-existent. I'm lucky enough to live in one such place. If you find a corroded bike here, there's a very good chance it was imported from somewhere else, or else left on the lawn under the sprinklers.

I especially like the way he detached to v-brake noodles, giving the bike something less than no stopping power.

Nah, it's just something the seller sees as a selling point. All his selling points are ridiculous; I don't care where the bike has been, I doubt it has been greased since it was first sold. Probably in need of complete overhaul. And the gloss he runs is just ridiculous; I hate it when I go to check ebay and find the same basic bike (minus the super valuable reflectors, keyless lock, rotting tires, zefal pump, etc.) selling for nothing near what the CL seller claimed:

I don't think the Brooks saddle is worth an extra 1,050$ somehow or other.

Not only is it 10lb or less, but it also has 27" wide tires. Now that's one lightweight fat tire bike!

well, it does say super light right on the frame ;)

degan 03-12-14 08:40 AM

Anybody need an 86 CM Trek 1000? The seller did say the size is approximate.
Tallest bike ever.

zukahn1 03-12-14 01:20 PM

This seller has to be completely clueless as to the bike real weight. That bike is at least 20lbs the Alex wheelset with those tires and casstte is likely pushing 10lbs.
