Not only does it fit the criteria of blue but itís fits the height requirements as well (actually 2Ē short). We donít own this one anymore.

DSCN0573 by Stuart Black, on Flickr

It was replaced with a less vintage tiny bike. 650C wheels and tipping the scales at 20 lb...even with a rack! On the plus side, itís a bit less squirrely than the other Terry.


Equally less vintage but still tiny.



And, for the vintage crowd. Although this one wasnít vintage when this picture was taken...1985



It also no longer exists. It died a mountain bike death...breaking in battle as all mountain bikes should...and now enjoys being ridden in Valhalla.

Another blue Trek - 1980 Trek 412 that's been morphed into a sporty and versatile city bike courtesy of some Jitensha flat bars and a pair of 38mm Soma shikoro tires.

I have these two. The Turbo is a good match for the Lemans above. The Iris color is hard to beat.

I have a few.

$40 CL find.



Micheal Bornstien built while he was at Strawberry.



Very cool bottom of the barrel Bianchi.



Very tall Bottecchia, repainted, no livery.



Too small Merz edition Allez, it and the taller replacement frame still languishing.



Fantastic Merckx 10th tribute, also still languishing and likely to have its parts moved to another project and get a much more correct group that came from the too small frame that was traded for it.
