When I say it's in very good to excellent condition I mean both frame and components.

I bought a very beautiful frameset from @texaspandj so you can certainly take his word at how good this one is.

I'm willing to bet someone's getting a nice bike if they buy this.

Thanks for the bump.
For sure this frame is in the same Condition as the one you purchased from me. It's a year older and a size smaller. It would be very difficult to find one in this condition. What's really cool is the components are in the same condition.

Are the cranks 165 or 170?

I know crazy, but I have my eye on another 88 Ironman,and Bike Forum friendly price.
It's slow going here for this Ironman, probably for 3 good reasons.
Small frame,
Not spring,
Absolutely No rebuilding needed.

This should be sold already. Not sure what people are waiting on. Buyer is basically getting frame and fork free.

GLWTS!

People are probably not clicking on the thread because the title makes it seem like he's looking for a group for $400.

If I was OP I'd make a new thread with a title that actually describes what's being sold.

I agree with LA...I actually only checked the thread because I saw you mention you would be selling it in a different C&V thread. Could be the size also...I'd get it, but I'm broke lol. GLWS! It's in gorgeous condition.

I actually looked at the thread a couple times before I realized he was selling the bike. I have, like many others, learned the tendency to skim stuff on the web. It's dumb, I know, and I try to remember not to.

It's worth every penny.

$275.00 Any other 9-sp bike out there.
+$75.00 Cool wheels
$100.00 Cool factor, C&V factor, easy. It's a freakin' Ironman in good shape.
+$25.00 Market-wise (IMHO, $50-$75) for "ready to ride."
$475 total. I've spent plenty more and consider mine, like his, easily worth it.

You can buy cheaper bikes.
You can buy 9-sp.
You may find one with aero wheels.
Chances are, none of those will be ready to ride, and you'll have to put money in them.

And not a darn one will be a hot-rod ass-kickin' yellow Ironman, ready to rumble, with modern kit.

Can't believe it's still here. If it was 2 cm shorter I would have snatched it up for my son. This is a real good deal. Maybe someone will get their tax return in and go shopping soon!

Yup, that's a bargain and a beauty. Craigslist sellers up here are asking $300 or more for factory stock Ironmans that need work, some a *lot* of work.

For sure this is ready to ride, perhaps I'd be better off selling the frame separately.

Why hasn't this sold yet? Anyone on the fence needs to push the button and buy! GLWTS! With the wheels, you are talking $400 in parts or more.
