Pretty sure its a '91, but funny enough I havent looked up the year to confirm.

Its totally refurbished.
- new tires
- new cables and housing(cables are capped)
- hubs and headset have new grease
- Microshift 2x7 shifters
- frame, brake pads, and chain cleaned
- brakes and shifting adjusted
- changed the cassette to a 14-32 one with more range and better gear options for recreational rider compared to the stock cassette

Its a small frame- 49.5cm CtoT. So it would be 48cm CtoC. Standover is 30" .
paint is very good, just some nicks on the seat and chain stays near the dropouts- typical 30 year old use.


So whaddaya think for value?

$250 isn't bad for that bike. I was thinking it would be $300 to $400 or so.

The Schwalbe-Something tires likely indicate that the bike wasn't just built for resale with the cheapest possible components.

It is an awfully small frame, so make sure it fits.

The 14/32 cassette wouldn't be my choice.

Id start that on CL at $350 and, drop the price about $10 or $15 once a week until someone called. It would be hard to take less than about $250 for it.
