    Have:

    Circa 1978 Roberts Super 25.5 " crit frame full 531 with Campy ends. Uses nutted brakes, 700c wheels, 27.2 post, 126 rear spacing. I have some Campy bits, wheels and a post if you want some parts too. I checked, and transfers are available at H. Lloyd.

    Resprayed by previous owner a root beer Imron, it needs another one now. Previous owner also had a front der tab brazed on, and cable guides added to top tube, which are now corroded. If I had time, money and talent I would renovate this to its previous glory, but sadly I don't. Looking for a bit smaller frame, perhaps 24.5? I'm 6'3" and skinny. Something light and saucy, but with eyelets for racks and fenders so I can be a junior path racer if I am feeling spunky. Or a nice 80s/90s mountain bike/frame for a commuter conversion. Or, a nice ladies frame/bike for my 5'4" wife or 5'2" daughter.......surprise me! This needs to move on fairly quicky, I will be doing a basement remodel soon, and extraneous bike detritus needs to be disposed of.

    Located in suburban Chicago.

    I have a 1984 Lotus Excelle and I have no Idea what size it is. I just think its a tad to big for me. I'm 5'6" and the top of the seat post is just a tad bit past my waist. Not sure if that measurement can help you figure out the size. The bike is all original and I was planing on doing a Single Speed conversion. Found this thread and figured I might give it shot to see if someone might have a similar bike just smaller 48cm-52cm.

    Sorry for the wacky formatting. Not sure why it's doing that. Looks fine on my doc viewer. Any suggestions on how to fix it?

    I'm in!

    I bought a tall folk version of my teen years bike on eBay. 1984 Moto Jubilee Sport in Palomino. (Lost it after loaning it out at a kegger party!) Missed it ever since. I was so toked I found one like it I didn't even look at the size!

    60 cm and a 5'6" dude isn't very comfortable.

    I need a short folk version.

    7 on a 1-10 condition scale.

    Need a 55 CM or less.

    (Just frame) I'm keeping the parts.

Available as a frameset & headset & seatpost OR with additional odds and ends. (Including a higher end wheelset than I need: Superbe Pro hubs laced to Mavic OPEN 4CDs). Prefer local exchange in the front range of Colorado but can be talked into shipping.



    LOOKING:
    Option 1) Something of similar quality, 59-62cm and less aggressive geometry. (The 912 is 73/74). Plan is for a more upright townie which the 912 isn't ideally suited for.
    Option 2) Something of similar quality, 53-56cm. To build a commuter for the better half. Vintage high-end rigid MTBs cool too.

    I reread this today and the geometry of this Miyata is favorable to a less aggressive bike. Before you trade it away, I would highly suggest swapping the stem out with a Nitto high rise road stem with 70 to 80mm of reach and a Nitto noodle bar for good measure, you may find it changes the ride dramatically for the better. A 56.5 cm TT on a 60 cm frame is about as non aggressive as you can get.

    All truth. However, an unexpected project came to me that fits this build idea better since the frame is closer to the right size. So really I'm now looking to swap for something of similar quality but in 54/55cm for the better half.

    ^ one size bigger and we could have worked out a deal,

    Also, it looks like the fork is bent in that pic. Could just be the angle.

    Huh, I thought the stumpjumper was designed for big curb drops? On my 20 foot test ride to confirm it was too small I did hop one massive curb. All kidding aside it's just the bike is leaned against the wall by left drop + shot angle. Every vintage bike I own seems like it has bent forks when I take pictures. Next nice sunny day I plan to take much better pictures and upload to another site for better viewing.

    i have one, pristine 1968 eroba, decals/paint/og bar wrap in excellent condition. I purchased this from the original owner who said it was ridden a handfull of times new then parked. it appears to be a 57cm i'm 6'1 & lanky and prefer a 60 cm, shipping would kinda be a pain if your not local (but hey why not). so which ever way if someones interested i can take parts off or leave them on for a fair trade, hope it finds a nice home.

    the good:
    altenburger levers & centrepulle brakes, simplex shifters & derailleurs (rear derailleur has 1 bad cog), ranger hard plastic saddle stamped "made in german"
    the bad:
    bad bb & bad bearings on og steel wheels


    (photo'd not og rear wheel, front is, both have "light" oxi but will return with light polish imho)

    Bought this 1985 Miyata 610 last fall hoping I could make it fit. I rode it just enough this spring to realize it's too big. It's a 58cm. I would like to trade, frameset or entire bike, for same or equal quality 56cm (willing to kick in a bit extra for a 1000). All original except for the tektro brake cable hangers, no foam on the handlebars, and saddle (the Brooks pictured will stay with me). Presently has 1 1/4 Paselas. When I got the bike it was in very good shape, with original tires that looked to have less than 500 miles on them. I took it completely apart, repacked everything, greased everything with threads, etc. Sorry about the non drive side pic. I can send more pics to anyone who is interested.

    Hi, Simply
    No, no interest in a Trek 400. I'm looking for a dedicated touring bike. A 620 or 720 would fit the bill, but not a 400.

    I have 1987 Trek 520 60cm in 9 out of 10 condition, all original minus the cinelli stem that I swapped out for nitto technomic. The frame is just a tad too small. Looking to build out a dedicated touring frame size 63cm (25.5in). Would also trade my 1981 Schwinn Super Sport 63cm (Japan) with all original parts, swapped out the old Cyclone Suntour for a new period correct Cyclone Suntour I found at open shop.

    Looking to trade either for something similar to the following:

    Want: 1985 Trek 620 or 720 in 63cm (25.5in) frame, Miyata 1000, or similar era steel lugged touring frame/bike.

    Here's the Trek 520-

    Bridgestone xo-2 16" frameset+

    So I am mostly a lurker but do occasionally post and have decided to put this out there. I have a Bridgestone xo-2 frameset that measures seat tube- "16 c-t, top tube "20 c-c. It is in rough shape with many scratches and some surface rust. To me this is the perfect candidate for a sandblast and powdercoat or a decent quality beater if left as is. Powder coating was my plan before I realized exactly how small this frame was. I will also throw in the original fork, complete cockpit, super short seatpost and headset.

    What I would like to get in exchange is an 18" mountain bike frameset. This could be any brand but with a few limitations- Must have clearance for 2.25 or larger tires, and be made of steel. Preferably rigid fork too.

    i live in Leesburg, Fl and would prefer to just swap with some one local within 30miles or so. I would ship if necessary but I think it would take most of the value out of the deal. If there are any other questions let me know.
