    I live in probably the hottest bike market in the US. I've seen bikes like that languish for months to years at that price. the ads only ever dissapear after the seller drops the listing price (and...

    mostly agree with oddjob. i just skimmed comments, but the $400 someone quoted is dreamland- even if fully overhauled. this is a mid tier, generic straight gauge cromo frame.

    That crappy saddle,...

    to me, the frameset looks like a dime-a-dozen 70's grand prix. the shifters, rear derailleur, crankset and other parts were added after repaint.

    I think it's classified as a sports tourer. a little more agile and "fast" than true tourers, but a lot more forgiving and utilitarian compared to racers. I built mine up as a randonneur with fenders...

    Thanks for the advice folks.

    Didn't realize the spin doctor wasn't threaded, so I'll research the minoura. You all saved me from some headache there.

    Reviews for the Spin doctor are much higher and its about $20 cheaper on sale.

    Just saw that Performance has a weekend sale. I'm looking to buy the spin doctor truing stand (30% off) and some consummables. they're not necessarily urgent purchases, but it would be nice to have...

    You can tell there was a lot of care put into this bike. Everything was very tastefully done. Gorgeous.

    Honestly, at that kind of size does it really matter?

    The sport had generic 4130 and nearer the bottom of the line. It's a solid bike at a great price.

    Feel free not to post in these sorts of threads then. As b dub mentioned, i rather enjoy these threads where people are identifying CL bikes with crappy pictures.

    Not possible. Not my bike and seller apparently can't use a camera.

    I'm primarily interested just for the brooks and barcons anyway, just would be helpful to know anyone's thoughts.

    Oh wow! That's a stunning bike!

    An external bearing bb/crankset option would make complete sense to me. You can find lightly used FSAs quite reasonably off ebay.

    Those adaptors are your only option if you want modern threading on a DA AX crankset.

    What bike is it if I may ask? Having mismatched cranks are quite common on both vintage and modern bikes. You...

    Guess What Bike This Is: Extreme Edition

    That's a real good deal for a blaze gruppo. If I wasn't trying to downsize a bit on all the extra parts I have, I'd totally be all over that.

    looks like a nice mid-level bike to me. i would guess circa the 1950's. i would think these were limited to the italian market, as only a handful of times have i seen them pop up here in the states....

    never seen a specialissima without chromed driveside chainstay before.

    100% agree the frame is from a later era than what the decals represent.
