Looking to swap for something in a 57-58cm.
Shogun 1000 Double Butted Tange Chromoly. Paint in good condition, no dents, dings. I lifted the Shimano Arabesque group from this frame.
Time to fire up a 3D printer
This spring, I have sold 6 road bikes at asking prices between $250-$365. Only one single buyer asked for a discount, so she got $20 off. I have also sold a hybrid and MTB at 100% of...
Just picked up a purple 13" BB-1 for three Hamilton portraits last week as a refurb and resell candidate. Clean as a whistle. :)
Most of the bikes I work on average about 30 years of age, and for the most part are fairly clean as far as oxidation. Sometimes the bb shell interior shows some rust but a spritz of WD40 and a wipe...
I am curious why you think the Miyata @ $250 is a worthwhile buy and not so much at $300?
Is this based on actual experience in selling or buying the same bike, or comparable bike (SWAG) or just...
I like Zaffiros, a sportier ride, but my experience is they are a PITA to mount. No experience with the Pro II.
The operative words here are large, step thru, mixte, CHEAP!
My large derrière seems to be brand agnostic, as long as it is not a cheaply made vinyl covered saddle.
If I have to buy a new saddle, it is usually a Brooks B-17. I like the Avocet Touring a...
Not made in Chicago, been on the market ten days, too high priced. IMHO, $100-$120. Logistically, have them meet you half way.
That Nishiki is one size too small. Looks like a 56cm and you need a 58cm.
What the hell is a three day redirect?
Anyway does the OP know what size bike he needs? How tall is he?
Congratulations on the sale! I'll bet there is a happy new Miyata rider out there.
bikemig will be thrilled to know the Oracle got it right. :D
Probably using a scrap yard or dump as his main source of inventory.
Ridden hard and put away wet! Fuggedaboutit.
Wheels don't match either. I love vintage Treks, I have six road bikes, but would pass this one up.
As of this moment, using your above searches, the red/white Univega happens to be the best deal IMHO.
I think there are some posers here trying to show they're a knowledgeable insider by slinging buzzwords around. It happens in business speak as well and is such a turnoff.

Donate it and get a tax receipt.
IMHO, it's nicely done and is good value for a clean ready to ride mid level chromoly bike. I just sold refurbished and at full asking price a Lotus Challenger $250 and a Panasonic DX3000...
Go to the supermarket or hardware and get a $2 can of Barkeeper's Friend. It is non abrasive cleanser with oxalyic acid in it. Applied with a wet sponge, it is a great way to take care of spot...
Or use a cartridge bb

As extremely low cost transportation = treasure
As a collectible = junk
Nevertheless, enjoy your project!
Since it is the same seller for all 3, go try to lift the two Varsity bikes, then the TRAVELER.
You definitely want the largest Trek Shift frame available, which is 21". A lockout suspension is highly recommended because it will bottom out immediately.
However my first recommendation is to...
