I would love an Ironman. Pink and goldenrod. I've always wanted to be just like RobbieTunes. Do you have one lying around?

Yes, I do have a couple laying around...but I'm stingy with them.

If I find one, I keep it. Lol. I have 2x 56 CTT (54.5 CTC) and 1x 58 CTT.

The first one. Long since been sold. It was a 60cm.

I want to be a part of your Texas ironman club if you guys make one but I'll have to borrow one of those frames.

Sorry, I had to comment with you guys going back and forth.

Haha heya Shaun. Long time no see. C&V user Kuotient is also sporting a sexy looking Ironman that he just did the MS150 on. And I'd love to join the club, but with Andrew snatching up ever available Miami Vice Centurion around...

I forgot Kuotient had one, but now I remember seeing pics of the ride at the handbuilt bike show ride in austin.

I know the ironmans are around, I think I saw one on CL before can't remember exactly. I actually saw one in the wild on a ride in Terry-Hershey park near Katy, TX, no pics since we passed opposite ways at over 20 mph each. But the color scheme and bike were undeniable.

That would really be funny/awesome though if we all got one and went on a ride together sometime, it's definitely doable.

If we all rode those goldenrod and pink ones, we should wear matching color outfits and have this blaring in the background. It's only fitting.

One of you north texans should pick THIS one up. Not an ironman, but I'm pretty sure you could be in the club with this one...

I have a 56cm 1986 Schwinn Peloton. It's a great riding/handling frame and made of Columbus SL, (not Tenax) with all English threading. It was one step down from the Paramount that year and came equipped with Suntour Superbe Pro. There is no rust or structural damage of any kind. It comes with a Tange needle bearing roller headset, but a nice Dura Ace 7410 headset is available also.





Interested in 54-56cm frames (vintage and modern, Fe, Al, CF, Ti). I like Italian, Japanese, American, custom, anything... I'm also willing to trade for Sram shifters, RD, other parts. Let me know what you have.

I have a very specific trade that I will throw out there to see if anybody has one.
I have a 1987 +/- Falcon Harrier 62 CM full bike, but I would like to swap the frame with somebody who has a 56 CM Falcon Harrier.
Swap Frame for frame. I say we leave the headset and BB but I can pull that as well if needed.

Hey, I sure like that. What size frame are you looking for? I don't know that I have anything worth trading to you..

Mm, I'd be looking for something like a 53-55 CTC frame, probably 55-56 TT.

If have a 1999-2000 is Team Yeti Road project in fine shape. 52/3CM full ultegra with WCS bars... Just does not fit me right. It is more than 10 years old so that makes in vintage I hope :-)

Looking to trade to something more comfortable for an old guy. I am looking for a 21" 1986 Trek 520 in good shape. Specifically that bike.

I'm re-posting/quoting this because I have changed my mind. I will trade this for a track frame. 54-56cm, any brand considered. This bike will not include the wheels/cranks pictured. It will include the OG brakes, bars, levers and tape.

Thanks for looking!

Has the old Huret honey comb rear dropouts. Don't worry about the color, for the most part its been sanded down and better yet was painted by the previous owner with cans of spray paint so brake cleaner does a good job of removing. Does come with the fork which is chrome on the lower ends. mcrane428@msn.com

Hi Scuba....I was wondering what size wheels your Gitane frame uses...700c/27"/650B? And could you post a photo of the fork also please?

Thanks!

Will trade for something with a 57cm top tube 57-58 c-c seat tube.

The frame
Diamant Max- the fork blades are not Max, but I do believe it is the original fork.
The frame is in great condition with a few small chips and some light surface rust speckles on some of the chrome.

56 c-c seat tube
55.5 c-c top tube
1" 145mm head tube
130mm rear spacing



More Pics

Have: 1987 Schwinn Super sport frame. 56cm. the classic and desirable pink with white. frame is 7.5or8/10. no rust, just some minor scratches. originally had 600 index stuff.

(pic not mine, but happy to send picture to anyone interested - PM me).

Looking for: something a little less pink (although some pink is ok). 56-58cm range. something European would be nice, but will consider anything with a cool / unique paint job.

Anyone interested in a really small early '90s Specialized Allez? This one is a 46cm with 51cm top tube. I'll trade the frame/fork/headset/maybe some other parts like bottom bracket/seatpost/stem/bars, I just want to keep all the RX100 stuff. There's a small dent in the middle of the top tube- not sure how or when that happened, but it doesn't seem to affect the ride.
I am interested in trading for a good-quality mixte frame, one with twin top tubes. I usually ride about a 48-50cm.
