    Shogun 800 @ $85

    A shame it was treated so badly :(

    If there was a RD, I'd consider it solely for parts.

    I had a car chase me once in a beat-up 80's piece of junk (80's cars aren't like 80's bikes). He was mad at me for slowing him down on a backroad with cars parked on both sides, so he decided to make...

    The reason I suggested the saddle is I was surprised at how high your bars were in comparison. It could also be you need to lower the bars. This would change the direction of your pelvic bone to more...

    I'd be willing to bet your saddle is too low. You get nervous when the RPM get higher because this is awkward when riding and pedaling. But with other bikes, you either can coast through it or shift...

    I've studied bike fitting and lead cliniques on it. I've ridden many SMP saddles as well, working in the industry and testing products. Trust me, I have the padless saddle buttocks too. I rode the...

    More important to consider than the aerodynamics or frame weight, there's a slightly different approach on geometry between the Orbea and BH. Orbea is a bit more aggressive on position and will be...

    Funny I read this right now. I JUST put it online to see what I'd get. (Listing $450)

    Thanks for the input. I was really just looking for a conformation on the incorrect size. I'm sure a 61cm...

    I know my bike fits. It's nothing to do with hand positions, but spandex "orthopedic" insert ;) positioning, and how hard I'm motivated. (Being racier in a sprint makes you shift slightly on saddle)....

    From what I can see, it's not all original components. Dura-Ace headset with a style that's not in-line with the shifters age. Based on the shifters, braze-ons, and crown/lug styling, I'm going to...

    Selle SMP

    I was wondering if anyone else had experience with Selle SMP saddles. I own one, and used it for about 2 months at the end of last year and found it either luxurious or horrifying on rides. Seems...

    I hate it when someone rides fixed on platform pedals with no straps. (Always due to wanting to be a 'legit' hipster)

    Two questions: What bike do you have that's been fixed? (Fitting/position...

    Seller obviously has no concept of bicycle maintenance (or spell-check). "tired are a little old but hold air" Tires usually have tubes in them, and I doubt this one has tubeless tires or rims. Also,...

    That told me a lot about the bike's history. Poor thing :(, probably got rarely ridden after the owner found a performance bike doesn't make a performance engine. I've seen this concept many times in...

    I know you already bought it, but from what you describe and picture I'd go as high as $400 if it were my size. Partially because of my nostalgic preference for Raleigh. But the first thing I'd...

    Are you making the transaction in the Netherlands? Vintage road bikes seem to have less value in Europe. (Probably more of them than North America)

    Even the retail price is high! I'd say in perfect condition; $300 in-store, $200 Craigslist. Haggle? He might've been trying to sell it for years.

    I'd definately pass. Carbon bike construction/design back then wasn't phenomenal. Not that it would break under you, just it's not going to preform under you. (There's a reason they look so different...

    I'm a bit of fit OCD on my bikes, but I suppose I'll have to try a century with threadless stems in my jersey pocket.
