Now I'm going to have nightmares about the eight foot tall C&V enthusiast. Thanks.

whenever i see folks who ride above a 64cm i think "damn! some ebay competition"

gomango 11-02-12 02:22 AM

Thanks for the additional pics.

Both of these are obviously in great condition and have some nice frame details.

I assume they are both made from Columbus SL?

A fellow at the shop has a TS Isaac.

So very nice.

He really loves that bicycle.

This page must have set a record for the number of bikes over 62cm.. I wonder if more larger frames are made by American manufacturers than any other country, besides the Dutch of course because we all know how tall they can get.

The green Kelly of redxj's is my favorite. One of those bikes that can do everything.

that 74 romic is very cool. and that blue cannondale above is an awesome color

Smokinapankake 11-14-12 08:07 PM

Love Shimano Sante' stuff... So elegant and classy. I think it fell somewhere in the line around Ultegra. Maybe between Dura-Ace and Ultegra? Definitely nicer than 105 of the time.

auchencrow 11-14-12 08:18 PM

Really great looking 'dale there, richpool!

Here is my '87 in green.

wow, that font on the logo. Havnoonian must win the award for the most no-nonsense branding of any company. Another cool SS, steve!

Just be grateful that we aren't sharing photos of the ugly mugs that go with the bikes. :twitchy:
