cinelli super corsa: $750 bling bling

That Cinelli is sweet. I used to have one and loved it. Prolly has horizontal drop-outs as well. $750 for what is on it is very reasonable. OP? you watching? That has Operator written all over it.
$450 for a 2002 bike? Save up another $100 and buy a brand new one.

it's a group ride, but i think i lit a fire in some people when i suggested we bring beer along to quaff mid ride or after or whatever. i just like beer is all.

looks like rain from where i am; if there is water coming from the sky, i'll probably stay home otherwise it's H.E. parking lot at 10 for me.

Yeah cavernmech is setting me up with a kickass deal on a tube replace. Then i'm not sure, probably rebuild it as a geared roadie and then either getting a fixed rear wheel or getting a totally new build for a beater fixie. I wasn't sure if I wanted to go with a repair given the initial purchase price of the frame but I just liked it too much.

It was fun as hell kicking $5k full carbon bikes up DVP on a fixie.

Frame size wise anywhere I think 54-55cm is about right for me. Or whatever size goki was running on his Nishiki beater (yeah teh beater with NJS stuff).

P.S No cv for me guys

hey, it was the only bar/stem i had lying around! and it's yours until you get your ride back. i'm pretty sure it's a 54. cam would know how big cam is.

Royal Blue?....Oh right...the saddle/bike position trouble. right right. Thanks for the offer but I only go for normal skin colour ass, and I have sampled many colours of the rainbow, but I draw the line at blue.
"Steeker?"
"Yes Mom?"
"Have you done your stinky a$$ laundry yet?"
"No Mom"
"Well no fun C.V. rides until you do all your chores and laundry!"
"Yes Mom"
