Really Really cool.


I love the style on those. Despite the name, it's not as heavy duty "tour" as other bikes- but quite cool in its utlility.

I'd love to get my dirty paws on one of those.

I might have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for these blasted kids and their dog.

I just happen to look on CL on Saturday afternoon on the 4th July and everyone was out town.
I must say that i'm pretty lucky to pay $30 for it and spend $35 repair it!

Let me know if you want to double your money- it's my size.


When my Trek 720 appeared on CL- I just happened to search "trek 720" actually thinking of looking for one of the early 90s hybrids- and then there was that one... I did a little math in my head to see if I could come up with the money... and texted the guy.

I got lucky- but I spent a lot more than $65 on it.

As well it should be.

If you look to the left, you'll see I really, really like old touring bikes. There's the whole thing about the ride- it's just that much more plush- and there's an... ambiance to a touring bike. It's business with ATB components, it's graceful with a level top tube and slender tubes and and leisurely in the semi-upright position, long wheelbase and less a concern about weight.

I'm looking forward to you posting many, many pix of that bike!

Criminy!! I thought I got a good deal when I paid $300 for a well worn RB-1. Go post in the "official bridgestone" thread, you'll see there is a bit of a cult following. How could anyone pass that up?? The right brifter alone is worth more than what you paid.

The whole bike is in excellent shape. Just a few scratches here and there. No rust on the frame and parts
