Whats up guys, so I've been lurking around these forums for about a month or so.. and since I just bought my first road bike 2 days ago I figured I would share. Thanks to all the info on here I was confidant in knowing what to look for and what to avoid. The result: I snagged this beauty off craigslist for $275.
Correct me if I'm wrong w/ the terminology.. Still pretty new to it all.
1980's Faggin Road bike 55cm. Beautiful lugged Frame, Columbus tubing, Gipiemme dropouts
All Shimano 600 components
Sunrim wheels w/ Competition hubs
Shimano SPD m959 pedals
Cinelli stem + Mavic Bars
and a Lame-ass-Saddle.
I'm planning on swapping out the wheels and saddle for a classier look in the future but right now, it gets me around.
