Atala road bike frame - $120 (Kendall)
Date: 2009-11-25, 3:42PM EST
Reply to: [Errors when replying to ads?]

Vintage Atala italian road bike frame. All steel 53cm. Bike project was never finished, bike frame too small for me. Bike has signs of wear and scratches. Perfect candidate for fixie/single speed or a full restoration.

FRAME AND FORK ONLY.

Call *** *** ****

Thanks.

Pursuit. It was a model name for them. Not the type of bicycle.

No there isn't - the bike was designed specifically to be ridden round in circles (clockwise) singing 'Raindrops keep falling on my head'.

This bike has the wrong size wheels in the picture. Not much clearance in the back as well

I guess that project came to a screeching halt when he installed the front wheel

Men's American 27" fixed gear bike - $100 (Midtown-near Tech)
Date: 2009-11-27, 5:57PM EST
Reply to: sale-fvpkg-1484481385@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

I'm selling this bike because my school is too hilly for a fixed gear. It has no breaks and one pink pedal for style points. I think the chain might be a little bit short but it rides OK. Both the wheels are in working condition with tubes and tires. The bicycle is large enough for someone who is 6'4'' to ride it as it has 27'' wheels. I would be interested in selling just the parts, if there are no takers for the whole bike.

I could be wrong but these pedals do not look like SPDs to me. http://philadelphia.craigslist.org/bik/1484383729.html

and even if they were $80 for used pedals?

Team Fuji with ARX?? I am awaiting a answer as we speak. NICE bike though, and I may bid, and out the proper stuff on it later.,,,,BD


http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...:X:AAQ:US:1123

Edit. It did come with ARX?? So why is it better than my CLub Fuji, which came with the same equipment? The rims are pretty, but it's a little puzzling??

bikedued, I have a 1982 Team Fuji, which I've been meaning to put up for sale. It has ARX derailleurs. It's the same as the one you cite, except mine has Dia Compe brakes.

There is something extremely wrong with that rear wheel... how exactly did that person make a freewheel fixed... and then put no brakes on it...
Perhaps I'm seeing it wrong, but that's what I'm gathering from it.

I'm aware of that... I just don't understand how making a fg out of a freewheel is even possible unless one was to dismantle the freewheel and somehow freeze or weld the pawls so they don't move.

Either he seized the freewheel or he is deluded about what the bike is. In other words, if it still freewheels, then maybe he thinks it's a fixed gear by virtue of being "fixed" into a single gear, since he lacks a derailleur. Another possibility is that he knows everything that's wrong with the bike and hopes to deceive a buyer into buying it.

Whatever the case is, it's a wacky ad.

Considering the fact that the PD-A520 is a SPD pedal and the pedals in the box are either older SPD-SL pedals or LOOK pedals (I'm thinking LOOK), I'm going to guess and say the person who placed the ad has no clue at all what he/she has.

They have them listed at $30 now, BTW. They'd be worth 30 bucks. 80? Not so much.

I thought I'd give this guy some help. He has his Univega Gran Turismo advertised as a Univera, he's using very poor photos, and has very few specifics listed about the bike.

Still, this is a nice bike, looks like it could be a 23".

I should be selling mine. I've never used it and probably won't need it. That's a lot of money.

I wonder what else I have that can bring in that kind of cash!

Most definately a 13 speed bicycle. I think maybe its a 12 speed with an overdrive gear. But any way you look at it, its much better than a 12 speed - This one goes to 13.

Likely just an extra zero. Otherwise not a bad deal for brakes, shifters, and rear derailler.

Yeah, it is one better. I bet it has a 13 painted on the shifter with white out and it would look great riding around a mini Stonehenge with a prancing dwarf.

Sorry if this has already been posted but have you guys seen this Peugeot P-18 that brought $860?? WTF is all I can say.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...1#ht_500wt_976



Quote:
This is a 1982 Peugeot P-18. I set it up as a commuter/grocery getter. It has NOS Phillips Chrome Fenders. New Honjo Fender Stays. NOS Front French Rack. New Wald Rear Rack. New Gyes GS-07 Leather Saddle w/Springs. NOS Shimano EM Ratcheted Thumb Shifters. New Kalloy Riser Stem. New Velo Orange Brass Bell. New lined cable housing w/Aztec Stainless Steel Cables. New rim tape, tubes and tires. A new Rav X Flasher, new Kleen Kanteen Stainless Steel Bottle and NOS Reg Bottle Cage.

It has Weinmann 610 Centerpull Brakes w/new brake pads. Atom 77 6 speed, 14-28 freewheel. Atom small flange hubs w/quick release front. Rigida Super Chromix 27x1 1/4 rims, Suntour Seven Front and Rear Derailleurs and a Sedisport Chain. A Solida 52x42 Crankset w/chainguard.

I really wanted to keep that classic look when I set this bike up. This bike has been completely gone over. Every nut, bolt, washer has been cleaned and polished. The hubs, bottom bracket and headset have been repacked and the wheels trued. The frame had a few scratches which I touched up. It has been compounded and waxed. I used stainless steel buttonhead screws and acorn nuts to mount the fenders and racks.

This years model came in only one size, 50cm / 19.5" with a long seatpost. The idea is to fit many people with one size frame. My wife is 5'2" and it fits her well with the seatpost lowered. With the seatpost raised to the max it almost fits me and I am 6'1". It's a safe bet to say this bike would fit someone from 5'2" to 5'10".

Now for the cool stuff. This bike is really fun to ride! No bike shorts, no bike shoes, no gloves just get on and ride, sitting up tooling around breeze in your hair...do dat do...Even I like riding this thing. My wife likes it so much that she wants me to change up her Bianchi ! Hmmmm....This bike has a smooth, quiet, solid ride to it. It shifts really quick for friction, two clicks boom, your in the next gear. And holy cow this bike is flashy! With all that chrome this thing is like "bling central". I had to shoot it in the shade because there was just to much glare in the direct sunlight!

Because of the nature of this bike I will ship it in two boxes. The dropouts will be blocked up to prevent bending and the frame and every component will be wraped in foam. I use Paypal and Fedex ground and will ship it within three day after receiving payment. If you want to save on the shipping "and my packing" you are more than welcome to come pick it up or if you live within 100 miles or so of me I'd be happy to meet somewhere for delivery. Sorry USA only. Thanks for looking and happy bidding.
