I remember riding in a seat like that when I was four or so. My parents rented bikes and rode us around Central Park.

Those are HUGE sprockets... 16T for the smallest? 22T for the largest? And most of the wear is in that large sprocket.

This could be handy for certain vintage restorations, although I would imagine that it was used on a type of manually shifted single-speed.

Certainly not the freewheel for my inner masher.

https://www.amazon.com/EUROBIKE-XC70.../dp/B07917BSM1
https://www.amazon.com/EUROBIKE-EURX.../dp/B07BVH3QG2

It looks like that was an earlier (now discontinued model). $489? and free shipping?

I wonder if the owner left a review on Amazon about the horrendous proportions of the bike???
  • 14 Speed Shimano Shifter more easy for you shifting.
  • Aluminum fashion rims and perfect design.
  • Dual Aluminum caliper brake makes your cycling more safety.
  • Recommended for rider's height 5'5"-6'0". Max weight up to 220lbs
  • Multiple choices give you a colorful ride experience
    .
  • Bicycle weight: 36.5 LBS
  • Package weight: 43 LBS.
  • The max load weight: 330 LBS
  • Material of Frame: 6061 Aluminum
  • Material of Fork: 6061 Aluminum
  • Frame size: 50 cm and 54cm
  • Wheel size: 700C
  • Gear sets: 14 Speed Shimano gears
36 Pounds?

Not sure where the 110 pound weight discrepancy is from. Can one install a heavy duty rear rack?

Notice:
  1. This bicycle arrives with 85% assembled. You need to install the handlebar, front wheel, pedals, seat and pump up the tires.
    The Bicycle Installation instruction included in the package, please tuning the brake and speed system following the instructions.
    .
  2. Pedal threads are different from left side and right side. L / R signs are marked on the axle of the pedal, make sure they are assembled on the right side (when you ride on the bike, left pedal on your left hand, right pedal on your right hand). The right side pedal has a right-hand thread (removes counterclockwise, installs clockwise). The left side pedal has a left-hand thread (removes clockwise, installs counterclockwise). Thread both pedals into the crank arms as far as you can by hand. Then fully tighten them with the wrench. If the pedals are not fully tightened, it may get loose and damage the threads.
    .
  3. All tools are included in the package, no extra tools.

Yeah, in the interest of truth in branding, it should be called a "ThirdWorld-o-BSO", but I don't think that would get past their marketing folks....

The wheels are aluminum but say "carbon no 1" on them. That's so lame its just embarrassing. Somebody somewhere seemed to think that was a good idea.

Was watching this Dunelt when it was posted a month ago, interesting bike. After heavy bid activity it sold for a bit over $400 plus 160 shipping - seemed a bit high to me but I'm no Dunelt expert. The next day it was re-listed with a bin of $2000 and a 30 day period. Since then it's been dropping in stages, now at $1100 with 6 days to go. I'm guessing unrealistic expectations led to backing out on the original sale, seller might wind up rueing that decision (or more likely just cursing all the cheapskates).
