    Oh God what have I done. Again.

    So As some of you know I just bought a Zunow Z-1 Site unseen not knowing what it was. I lucked out and got a great bike for very little money. I haven't woken up with a horse head in my bed yet so I am starting to feel safe I didn't piss off any C&Vers with my ignorance. But I just did the same thing "Buying a bike without putting hands on/sight unseen" for a Miyata and a goofy Tri frame made by some obscure bike maker named Yaqui. The Miyata is C&V but the tri frame is not. Pictures below are what I was sent. I might have messed up royally as I paid $100 for the Miyata and $375 for the Yaqui. They will both be here next week. Fingers crossed I haven't screwed the pooch. God this buying bikes like this is almost like gambling. Could get dangerous.

    Price wise I think you did OK on the Miyata but I do not know about that TT bike.

    I do see one thing that worries me... all there of these bikes look like different sizes. Your Zunow looks like a 55 or 56cm frame and this Miyata looks more like a 61 or 63. what size bike do you need? Did you get a fork with Yaq? that frame looks close to a 50 or 51 if it is intended to have 2 700c wheels.



    the more I look at this Miyata the more I wonder about that fork. Is it the angle? a trick with the size V the painted upper and chrome socks? or is it....

    Biachigirll - The Miyata I have no intention of keeping. A buddy is looking for a bike to ride around town and not really worry about getting stolen. He can't ride his Specialized roubaix Pro around town. The TT frame is my size. Or so the ad said. If it doesn't fit I am sure someone will take it off my hands. If it is at a loss I'll just figure I am now even because of the Zunow. The Yaqui comes with Reynolds Ouzo Pro Aero front fork. I don't know much about TT/Tri bikes but I am fairly confident I did well.
