Wow people are just dumping stuff. I wonder if the crazy COVID pricing is officially over? Glad I didn't buy anything his year.

How are those not sold at those prices, kind of glad I don't live in the Montreal area or I'd go broke.

Specialized Sequoia 1984 I think. It looks very much like the one I had, same size around 56cm, which was too big for me so I let it go. Outstanding bike, if you ask me.

For Facehugger listings, would it be possible for those posting their finds in this thread to copy n paste the accompanying contact info (if provided in the listing) within this thread? I don't have the "hug" and have no way of contacting people who sell items on it.

It'd be a cryin' shame if something is listed there and not be able to contact the seller.

I grabbed the Gary Fisher in this pic on the weekend

How is the Fisher? Is that a 700 hybrid or just real skinny 26Ē tires?

I saw this one and was almost tempted. Nice looking bike, good shape and decent price. I think it's pretty big though if I remember reaching out to him.

It comes with 700c, 135mm rear spacing. looks like it would fit 47mm at most, but not sure yet. It was wearing 23mm tires. Pretty much a gravel bike before gravel bikes? Though with the long stem a shorter rider would be more stretched out. Weighs about 24lbs. Right bar end shifter is toast so won't be an ultra cheap build. Not sure whether to amp up that 80s green and flashy fisher decal with bright bar tape and pedals or try to tone down the bike with natural cork bar tape and silver pedals.

It's too bad that on most FB adverts there is no way to contact the lister unless the inquirer also has a FB account. I don't have one and never will. There are many ways to find bikes, thankfully. But, by all means post those Canadian FB finds here in this thread!
I donít have FB either. I find a Marketplace ad, copy the link to a friend that has FB, and have them reply on my behalf. Then a deal is made and pick-up arranged, and I go and get the item.

I'd ride that for a dollar!

I've seen the Caravan in person before. Looks decent. Can't recall if it is similar in mojo and design to a Fuji Saratoga but I think all these better sort of touring bikes of a similar time were comparable in terms of quality. I once saw an old Mikado Cycle Tourer which looked nice too. Interesting rack braze-ons, but not sure if they'd be practical for the racks nowadays.

Hi there, could I contact your pal and have them make contact on my behalf? I don't think I know anyone with the hug.

Iím not so sure they would like that idea, but maybe open an account just for marketplace activity.

Hi Wonk, that's ok. I didn't expect a stranger in a different city to go to all that trouble. More of a cry in the wilderness for assistance with the hug. Lived without it up until now and will manage without it.
