eBay / CraigsList finds - "Are you looking for one of these!?"

The classic - vintage forum has a eBay / CraigsList finds - "Are you looking for one of these!? thread and in that spirit, when I saw this ad I thought I would post it here... and when I didn't see you had one of those threads of your own I thought I'd start one... I live 18 miles from the northern end of the Natchez Trace parkway and I'd like to bike it some day, and with that in mind I keep an eye out for touring stuff in the area. In reference to the Bianchi, too bad I'm 6' and broke.

Vintage Univega Gran Touring - $295 (Scottsdale)

Reply to: sale-kmfac-1665466338@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

I have for sale a 1988 Univega Gran Touring bike. This is an excellent full fledged loaded touring bike from the great age of touring bikes and is comparable to other great touring bikes, such as Miyata and Trek.. The bike has been stripped down to nubs, completely overhauled, rebuilt, and literally ready to hit the highway. In addition to being an excellent tourer, the bike could also serve well as a commuter or "old school" cyclocross/canal bike.
Frame: Triple butted Tange chromoly. 54cm seat tube, 54cm top tube. Full touring brazeons for loaded touring -- front and rear racks and fenders.
Drive Train: Shimano Deore. 48-38-28 treking crank. 14-32 6-speed Shimano freewheel.
Vittoria tires. Puncture resistant tubes.
Thanks for looking.

...any tips on searching for racks? other than searching for specific models, putting something like "bike rack" or "bike rear rack" in the search bar gives me 98% of results like thule racks for cars that i then have to sift through. is there a better term to use when searching on craigslist/ebay?..

try searching for the rack manufacturer, like blackburn.

Also, if you want to expand your search to other areas, try craiglook.com - it's a craigslist search engine that can search all ads.

...ooh, good idea, i didn't think of searching by manufacturer. and i never knew of craiglook, i always wondered why there wasn't an option to search everywhere on the site. thanks for the tips/info!..

Novara Randonee Like New! - $650 (Carrollton IL)

Novara Randonee Touring Bike – Like New!


I purchased this bike new last year, but I travel so much for work I haven't had time to ride it – I've probably only been on it 5 times! (It' so new the tires still have the little nubbies on them!) Bike is a 52cm frame, has wide range 27-speed gearing with STI brake/shift levers, and comes as shown with the saddle God made Himself, the Brooks Champion Flyer.
Save $$$ off the price of a new bike in the store by buying this like-new bike! Price is $650 firm, cash (Or, if you're a leather saddle hater, $600 without a saddle.)
