I actually fold the top of the leg warmers down so the gripper is towards the short and then pull my bibs down over them so the two grippers kind of interlock (not face to...

I don't think the symetry or lack there of has anything to do with what I was finding. It simply gives a little room and takes the pressure off.

I have only done short rides of around 15 miles...

To each their own but I would not commute on skinny tires. Adverse weather, comfort and the increased possibility for flats, no thanks. I would also want the Ultegra rear derailleur and would forgo...

Chrome Paramount

It makes me a little weak in the knees just seeing it in what appears to be my size. What do you all think? I am having trouble being objective.

I think its a bit over priced too, but I might look at it and try to do some negotiating if it fits. The seller says "600 brakes" in the add. Not sure why take the pics before finishing the bike but...

Interesting, I am 6' and ride a 56cm all the way to a 60cm depending on the bike.

Need better pics of the drive side for a good estimate. The bar tape looks newish. Did the cables get replaced before it got taped? I wouldn't go as high as $300 mostly because the Suntour is so hard...

I am still waiting for the story.

I agree way over $300. I would buy it today for $400 and I am pretty cheap. I would guess, marketed correctly, $600.

I am no expert but appears to be late 70s early 80s. $250 doesn't seem too bad if she really wants it. The neglected bar tape would lead me to believe it needs a full tune up. I would want it for...
