    Daccordi with Columbus Air tubing?

    Hi everyone, in my daily browsing of the local ads I came across this:

    Dacordi - Cikloberza Mali Oglasi - 2Bike.rs

    It looks pretty battered (I'm not sure about the dents on the fork, is that...

    I did the same thing when I saw a Colnago Super for only a 100 and had to buy it: 5'8'' and the bike is 58 cm too.

    I thought I'd sell it on since the typical advice on here suggests its too big,...

    Light clothes, taking it slowly, a water bottle filled with cold water every morning, and if you can, ditching the backpack for a bag that doesn't hug so tight like a messenger bag or bike pannier.

    Sounds like a great idea; easier than you'd think, and well worth it. On an old bike you may discover problems that you never knew you had, though. Stuck posts or brackets, internal rust, etc, so be...

    The BMX rider was ahead of the roadie, obviously looking to merge. There was space for one line. In that situation you let the guy merge in front of you. Squeezing the guy out while going at a...

    It would be great to see your previous builds if you have any pics. I'm still quite new myself but thinking of doing a simple fixie build.

    Oh, I missed that. I was just trying to write it down as simply as possible. I still remember when I was too scared to touch such basic things myself. I have no idea about disc brakes though.

    I would suggest maybe the following to help isolate the problem.

    On your brakes there should be a latch, or hook, that lets you loosen them. If not, you might have to unscrew them. Do that so they...

    I'm relatively new here too and I can sort of see where the OP is coming from. I don't think it's snobbery so much, but it can be intimidating as a basic cyclist to come on here and see people...

    After doing a bit more research it seems like this is a Moser Junior, made from CSS 52 Oria tubing, which is on the heavier side according to this chart.

    How much is this Moser worth?

    I recently saw this posting and was looking for more information. It seems similar to Moser Leader bikes I've seen in online catalogues from the late 80s, though being lugged I guess it's not a...

    Update:

    It arrived today, and feels really great. A tad on the big side I think, though that might be because I ride an MTB usually. Here are some pics. I'm pretty sure it's been repainted, and...

    Identify this Colnago?

    Hi everyone, I recently picked up this Colnago (I hope!) off a site for 100 euro. It seems to me to have been repainted, and there aren't many photos either, but the imprints, lugs, nice-looking...

    Is this fork bent?

    There are few pictures on this ad, and to me it seems like the fork has an angle that is different on the left side to the right: Bicikli : Drumski Trkac Biemmezeta - ID 11245101 - Kupujem Prodajem

    What about the pics?! I imagine the best bikes are the ones that people have snagged already, so it would be great to see those.
