Sprick Road Bike

The same seller of the XB3 has also a bike called Sprick, does anyone knows about this bike as well ?

Thank you so much about the information and help.

Low end. If the seller is trying to pass off the Russian bike as undamaged, I wouldn't trust this one either.

Very low end 80's era South Korean bike interesting but not worth much. The only thing of value is likely the head badge which one might get $10-15 for from a serious collector at a swap meet.

I am using a phone but it looks like shifters are XB-3 like first bike and so probably Russian as well and not Korean suggesting seller is putting parts on from anything he or she can find. That may work and XB-3 might be the Shimano of Russia but who knows. We have BF members in Russia who may offer info.

Since very few people on BF know anything about (or have ever heard of) XB-3 bikes or components we'd be hard-pressed to advise if this bike will even function because all we see are photos. Bike maybe fully functional but hard for us to guess. If you buy you may not get a good bike. We don't want you to buy junk. I believe you are in Turkey? If you aren't near a city you may not see bikes we can advise you on. Very few ex-soviet/Russian bikes made it to North America and Europe (Czech bikes did) so we're not familiar with them. What you are showing look like wrecks and I wouldn't want to suggest anyone buy one let alone ride it. If you have no real selection where you at you can get one from Germany, Greece or Italy. You should be reasonably close for shipping. You might need a friend to assist with shipping.

I'd be inclined to pass on that one, unless you need a couple of parts for another project.

The brake calipers are the cheapest you can get.

The top tube shifter appears odd. The appears to have downtube cable stops, so it probably had a stem shifter that was replaced.

Steel rims?
The pedals and crankset look incredibly cheap.

Need some closeup photos to see hubs, dropouts, derailleurs, etc. But nothing is very inspiring about that bike.

Not worth the time it takes to say not worth it. I would pass!
