    Bridgestone XO-2 Road Bike, Hybrid, Mountain,★ - $99 (Robbinsdale, MN)

    ?Bridgestone XO-2 Road Bike, Hybrid, Mountain,?

    Nice condition Bridgestone XO-2, XO2 bike, Bicycle. Has CR-MO frame. As you know, these are "cult follower bikes". EXTREMELY nice road and commuter bikes that are set up with heavier forks for the occasional off-road use. But the frames are alloy, lightweight, strong and extremely versitile. Easily made into single-speeds or fixie style. This bike has Shimano shifters and quick-release wheels. Alloy rims are straight. Dia-Compe cantilever brakes, Avocet saddle. Super hard-to find "mustache style" handlebars!!! Shimano allow crankset, Sakae graphite strap type pedals. You know your sizes... not me. The tires are shot, original and decayed. I could put new ones on, but the value is in the frame and components. I can put tires on if you want, any color or style! I inherited it and am selling as it is. Its clean, but used. What you see is what you get. It is not ridable because the tires are shot. Come see it!!
    That went fast!

    That's the crux of the biscuit there. What makes something special? A racing pedigree? An early example of a prolific design? Custom build? Cost? Everyone has their own thing that they are into. The definition of classic is up to the individual as far as I'm concerned.

    Not sure. It doesn't look like his Facebook or Twitter pages have been updated recently. Also, the contact info on CL says his name is Darrell, not Ben.

    Sure. I don't have a problem with any of that. Just that run of the mill bike boom bikes from the 70's might possibly be vintage while not being classic. Though if that was your first bike or a bike you lusted after, it might still be a classic to you. There are probably some we'd all consider to be classic and others that might be a bit more subjective. And that's fine.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    Hi, I'm selling this Cannondale touring bike with light use for it's age. It is in great shape and I just used it to ride from NYC to Boston. It includes everything you see in the pictures...fenders, racks and pump. It was a fun ride and this bike will treat you will on any long rides or as a commuter. Please note it was 27" wheels (I just bought brand new Serfas Secas ($28 x 2) and will include some spare tubes for you as well). The new tires are not pictured and were only used for the ride from NYC to Boston and for a bit of riding around town. This is a bicycle from the golden age when bicycles weren't mass produced and it has a lot more character and quality (although older tech) than anything you can buy for $600-$800 nowadays. If you have any questions please send me an email and I will answer right away. Please include your phone number if you are interested in the bike. I also invite you to compare my price to other folks selling this bicycle or something similar here on CL!

    It's a great bike for what it was but I think $400 is a bit much especially considering a lot the original Campy components and other components are gone and cheap crap was put on. And I rode a slightly later model, either a 75 or 76 Paramount tandem many years ago and that thing was very flexy...but not as flexy as another brand we tried (can't recall the other brand name maybe Gitane sort of rings a bell); but later years Schwinn Tandems they increased the diameter size of the boom and the down tube which took out a lot of the flex.

    Anyway with most of the original components gone I just think it's high priced but that's just me. Again to make it worth while a purchaser would have to research and find all the original components and restore it back to the way it left the factory to make it worth $400 or even more. I tend to undervalue some bikes though because mostly of personal experience with a lot of them, and flexy frames just don't do it for me. The frame may be worth $400 because it's a Paramount but I wouldn't personally buy it, if it was a later version with the larger diameter downtube and boom then I would.

    While nicely done the in front of the bar cable routing with the classic double levers is questionable normaly with these type levers they are routed behind the stem.

    I'm more bothered by turkey levers on a Cannondale

    At that price, still a hell of a deal, even if you have to pay someone to re-route or replace brake levers.

    Front fork on that Moto has some issues. Appears that one could mount a tyre saver on the down tube.

    This looks interesting but I think a bit pricey, especially not all original. $750 in Sacramento http://sacramento.craigslist.org/bik/4611518463.html

    I think it's camera angle and the way the bike is parked. The front wheel is slightly turning to the right as are handlebars due to being leaned against the garage door which is recessed in from the wall that the saddle is resting on thus allowing the front to be slightly turned, combined that with the camera angle and you have what you see. I doubt there is any issues with the fork...BUT, if you're interested in seeing the bike then go look for yourself, but I'm 99% sure the fork is fine.

    OK then, my computer did not even show this Bianchi, just your response to the Moto that was brought into question, I don't see the pic of the Bianchi on your post even now until I posted my response and then it only shows up on my response. And the post of which I am quoting does not show the last paragraph of your response in regards to the Bianchi.

    The horrible blocking on the photo makes it hard to tell what is strait on the bike. In any case this would be a big value deduction if one is not buying in person.
