I totally agree, I wouldn't spend more than $400-$500 TOPS on a body. But there are people out there who, like you said, are desperate for anything. It just so happens that I talk to them daily!

"If you don't get it, you don't get it." - $650 (South Minneapolis)[/h]

Unique. Individualistic. Almost one-of-a-kind. Not for everyone and don't wanna be. If you don't understand that, this isn't the bike for you. "If you don't get it, you don't get it."


Can be used for Road, Race, Triathlon, or just putzing around town. Gender neutral/unisex.

20" lightweight, compact, aluminum frame. We've had watermelons heavier than this bike.
Shimano 105 components :: 14 speeds :: 700 x 23 tires.
Color: Intense Blue with White letters on a Pink shadow.

Seldom used and leniently ridden, stored inside, and as you can see it's in beautiful condition.

Lubed, lean, toothbrush clean, and >FAST!>. Ready to put the pedal to the..."wind beneath your feet".

Price i$ firm. :: See ad, still available. :: Delivery possible.


I guess I don't get it. I like how both the brake's quick releases are open though.

im 6'5 and all legs, I probably could use this bike!

Just bought a 69cm framed bike this weekend and it fits like a dream.

With that being said, it is ridiculous looking, but we mutant-ly tall guys take what we can!

You beat me to the Trek, so I guess I'll post this:

Gitane road bike.

"1970's Gitane road bike - needs new tubes, possibly tires. Hasn't been ridden in years."

By new tubes I think they meant it needs a new down tube.

Clearly, you are unaware of the short-lived trend of shoving the wheels closer together in order to achieve a tighter wheelbase and firmer ride. The fad ended when riders realized photo-finish races could be lost as the front wheel was three inches further away from the finish line.

Will it's also front freewheeling which should work great for a SS.
