This thread is worthless without pictures, I know, but I don't have a picture!

I volunteer at the Trenton Bike Exchange, which is similar to a bike coop... they receive donations of bicycles, fix 'em up and sell them pretty cheap, and give the profits to the Boys and Girls Club of Trenton. Good cause.

Anyway, they have a Rossin frame and fork, including BB and headset. Very nicely made, Columbus tubing, no damage, smallish size (53 cm, maybe?) and a pantographed stem. Chainstays and fork are chromed. It's in excellent shape.

They would rather sell it out of their storefront than put it on ebay. What price tag should be on it?

Dunno. The label is not very specific, and I don't know anything about Columbus stickers anyway.
