CL Fuji ID help
 
Fuji Road bike in perfect shape. Everything works great. 700 wheels are straight paint is in great shape shifts good brakes great.

I really hate information-free ads like this. Can anyone ID the model/year from these crappy thumbnails, and take a guess at frame size? Looks like a Dynamic 10 from the 70's and 61cm+ to me but I don't really know Fujis that well. Any fair-price-range estimates are also welcome of course. I have emailed the guy with questions and for more pics but no response yet.

I'd say you're spot on with the model and sizing .. You're right, it's hard to tell with those small photos. I saw that ad, def. not worth the asking price, maybe a third of that at best. I think the seller is off on the wheel size, the should be 27"s, not 700's. Although they could be upgrades.

$300 was definitely high, but if it's the right size, and in as good condition as he says, I might try to reason him down to $150 or so... or wait a few weeks and see if it relists cheaper. I wouldn't mind overpaying a slight bit, been looking for a old, tall Japanese ride to do a SS conversion on for a while now, and it'd be nice to start with a well-kept one. Do you happen to know anything about the dropouts on that model? Hard to tell exactly how horizontal/long they are from any pics I can find of that model. They're probably fine though.

I love information-free ads personally. The sketchier the info, the better the deal, and the better chance it has of lingering around for a while. A well described bike, with awesome details and pictures either sells immediately at less than market (someone pounces on it), or sells for full market.

Sure looks like a Dynamic 10 to me, if so, that is a really low end bike: high ten steel frame, steel rims, heavy. $100.
