Quite true. I'm going to have to watch myself though - 99% of my 1,725 posts are from the SS/FG forum so excuse me if I post random gifs while I'm getting acclimated.
I knocked the guy down to $140 since I have to drive an hour to pick it up but I'm going to go get it today. (leaving in half an hour)
I'll have to see what it needs maintenance-wise. It's owned by a mechanic and he said he's been over it with a fine-tooth comb. Wheels have been trued and tensioned and most adjustments have been made.
If everything is in good shape my first changes in order of priority would be
1. Panaracer Pasellas - He says tires need to be replaced
2. Temporary saddle - going to put my Charge Spoon on. Will probably buy a tan one and tan tape later.
3. Good dual-pivot brakes
4. Aero brake levers and new cables. With internal cable routing, why use old style levers?
