    Boy, he wants it gone bad, for $500

    I'm stalking that Series Paramount at Flythe...

    Wow! Hard to imagine that is not a scam at that price, but who knows?

    If I had the cash I'd get it - the frame's my size, and the Shimano stuff is easily replaced

    I checked the paramount out yesterday, very nice, in almost minty condition, pdg 2 OS, full 600 group, needs a new saddle. ST was 21.5", TT was 22", both c-c. I asked if they would come down in price, they said "hey, it's craigslist bike", so it's worth a try...

    What you need, sir, is an enabler/facilitator.

    Pay the $500, have the seller drop it at a reputable bike shop, pay $40 to $60 to get it boxed and $100 or less to get it shipped and you've got a DeRosa Professional on the way to you for around $650 to $675 max. What's the problem!

    No pm, jp? heh.... I'm never in here and just happened to see this. All I need is another red De Rosa... Yet here I go. Think I might be getting this beast as I'm liking a 61 vs the 59.. This will be another rider. Strangeness on a Spring day.

    This is how to play the game folks.

    You won't even break a sweat after the fifth or sixth transaction.

    this.
    When something speaks out to me, I automatically include P&S in my calculations, then decide. Communication with the seller is key.

    Maybe I can get it picked up. I've done some bike favors, big time, for a student at UNC-Wilmington. His parents live a mile down the road. If a person made the deal, and paid via PayPal, I could lilkely get Justin to bring it here, where I could ship. Something to think about. PM me if anyone wants to go down that road.

    I've got to stalk it for a while, as it's not a necessity. I have one just like it, but would really enjoy building an evil twin....

    Hey, I'm trying to get this thing and it's a whopping five miles away. Looks like I'm going to get it. A big thanks to jp because I was not even perusing my own CL as I have more bikes then brains in my little place. This is insanity as I was looking for a mid 70s and back sample but it's too close to pass up. The woman is selling for a friend and only dealing local. And now I'm getting ready to be glued to ole Norksagent's VS page! heh.... You have my curiosity up.

    With a score like that, you need to name a kid after JP. I think "climbing goat" would be appropriate. He can climb with/without a bike.

    haha! I learned recently that my climbing abilities are directly related to the bike I'm riding. '78 Raleigh Pro = bog down and muddle up the hill. '89 Paramount = remain seated and smile!

    SWEET! I was hoping that a C&Ver would snag it. The SLX frame alone is probably worth the asking price if it is in good condition (which it looks to be from the pic).

    GOOD LUCK!
