    Get your size dialed in first, THEN shop. A deal on a bike that does not fit is not so great of a deal.

    There are endless guides on google as to proper bike sizing. Its not about your height, a...

    On modern bikes, half life is about five years, six years max. So use the half life formula. Not kidding.

    Except for something unique and special, the higher end the bike, the shorter the half...

    Value without drive side pictures and more details, no idea. Kleins are desirable, the more flamboyant the paint the better. Klein had some beautiful fade paint jobs in particular. Wikepedia has a...

    As far as local purchases, every town/area has their limit on vintage bikes, anything over that price ceiling gets ignored, which can be great for buyers, lousy for sellers. I picked up a very nice...

    Here in Hooterville, absolutely no way you would get near the prices above. Only shot is ebay, and that takes a pristine record as a seller, and the willingness and ability to pack and ship at a...

    Does it have Dura Ace (7400) bits, or 600 (6400) bits? With 7400, yes, worth it. With 6400, No.

    Bike did not originally come with Suntour Edge. Still, price above is OK. Need to turn up the marketing skills with a lot better pictures, drive side. This is not an exceptional frame. Its middle of...

    Uniglide is a bad idea. Check out what NOS Uniglide cassettes are bringing on ebay.

    Interesting your efforts to embrace modern standards: 700c, 130mm spacing, etc., then for a common wear item...

    Flipper here and I never have been tempted to reuse bearing balls. If the margin is that close, I bought the wrong bike (or paid too much for it).

    Make sure your allen wrench is not worn. I get this problem with worn allen wrenches. Best to use a fresh allen socket. Tap it in to improve the seating of it. In the end, you will probably need to...

    No, just the opposite, you only have to match them when you want them to index.

    7400 series is my favorite group, I like it better than any newer Dura Ace. The "big" question is what model shift levers do you have? If you have 6 speed Dura Ace shifters, then you will need a 7400...

    Just look on the backside of the crank arms, it will tell you what series Dura Ace you have: 7100, 7200 or 7400. Then pick the appropriate model derailleur. If your bike is truly 1984, and the Dura...

    Need to check your trade stock and offer up a trade on the for sale forum. Just offer "value for value". I've sold several on ebay to replenish my bike "fund", I have several left.
