    Vintage Schwinn Madison frame on ebay? Any forum member here buy it? *cough* Scrod?

    $321 seems pretty pretty fair for a vintage Madison frame. The condition looks pretty excellent for its age too. Any lucky forum member pick it up?

    You guys are funny. I was eyeballing it - and even threw a bid or two at it - but it got up a little higher than I can spend right now.

    Don't let the Columbus Tenax tubing deter you. Vintage Madisons are sweet bikes. You won't be able to fit fat tires on them but otherwise they're value fixies with a strong and light steel frame!

    I picked up a repainted one locally for 100 bucks plus a kashimax saddle and flat bar!

    I know but I don't care; I'm coming from the stand point of: as long as it's any columbus VS say for example, today's madison's no name tubing...I'm taking the columbus. The profit motive kills quality.

    I get what you're saying but sometimes labels are just labels.I like that the schwinn has columbus tubing but it was a freebie.If i was shoping for a frame and the choices where obscure columbus,obscure reynolds and double butted 4130 , I'd go with the lightest.When i looked up tenax the range went from "production grade"sl to blemished sl to straight gauge cromo,from seamless drawn to rolled and welded.

    As a columbus fanboy; I'm inclined to disagree with you on that point.
