    "Binky? OK whatever I almost didn't even bother with this post as I thought you talking about one those Bilinky or bikes from those snobs in Philly. "

    I agree with Bianchigirll, way too many signs pointing to 1970s or thereabouts. Definitely was made for 27" rims. And since when does a repaint cover up serial numbers? If it did, the original...

    Might work with existing BB, might not. Requires 122.5mm, yours is likely close.

    Shimano Deore is a good start. Although you might also find a mountain compact double easier to deal with as you probably don't need a really small ring. Or, you could also go with one chainring up...

    Nice frame, components are so-so. Cranks in particular are low end. Condition is good. Would make a good gravel grinder. As a mountain bike in 2014, technologically obsolete. I question whether...

    Thanks for the pics. Agree it is probably mid range, but I love chrome lugs, so they always have huge appeal to me. I don't think you got hosed, but not a screaming deal. If you ride it enough to...

    Yes, post pictures! Main thing regarding value is does it fit you and will you enjoy riding it. If both are affirmative, what does our opinion matter? So some will say you got a deal, some will...

    Size matters! Need to know frame size, standover height or something as a reference. You can google how to measure a frame. Take photos of all major components and the whole bike from the drive...

    I remember seeing them in late 80s. Not a very rare or special bike. Had aluminum main triangle and steel stays. Also a cromo fork. I had a technium road bike and liked it, had no issues with the...

    BTW, I only chimed in about the cheap tires because the poster apparently was unaware they exist. I saw Continental Ultras the other day advertised for $12.00 each. Cheng Shin, Kenda and CST are...

    First, although it doesn't matter to this discussion, I am not a flipper. I buy bikes that I want, fix them up and sometimes end up selling them when I decide they don't warrant keeping or when I...

    Flippers buy tires at around $9.00 each and tubes around $3.50 or less. If you can't find deals on consummables you aren't looking in the right place.

    Obviously pics would help, but I will offer some thoughts. First of all, is the RD a LePree with the triple pulley? some 1985s came with Suntour's cycloid crank sets. Is that the case here? ...

    Not outrageous, but probably close to high end value. Sew-ups are a negative to some people. Superbe Pro is top notch. Maybe you can bargain a little, using the sew-ups as a negotiating point. ...

    Specialized is a quality mfg and the Sirrus is a solid bike. I'd be hard pressed to pay $300 for it though. I'm thinking $200-$225 is realistic. However, it is clearly in nice shape and if it...

    $200 is too high IMHO. Although it is clean, the components are lower end and cottered cranks aren't a big plus. $290 is dreamland.

    Agree. Tange 2 is great tubing and not a lot heavier than Tange 1. Check out various threads discussing this. The Centurion essay by Ashley Wright on Sheldon Brown's website is awesome.

    Depends on what you want it for. Paint looks decent. Has long point lugs and fancy head tube lugs, a plus. I see decent cranks and a Shimano 600 FD. Wonder what the RD is?

    Just pointing out that the "set" in the ebay link above was misrepresented. The seller knew from his earlier posts that it was not a 1973 group, the RD being the most obvious example.

    That's what I would expect. Some will pay a premium for condition and comparative rarity and some won't. But it all begins with a need or want. Value is commensurate with the strength of either.
