Whew, good. That one had me scratching my head, a bit worried about our Teutonic compatriots.

Something looks off here.....Vintage Bianchi Campione D'Italia Lugged Dedaccai Steel Frameset Size XL 700c $209 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Bia...4AAOSwgb1cWOst

For some reason this Dedacci steel frame has a Tange sticker on it.

Well, that is where they put the shifters on the new pinion gearbox bikes.

Sure, this corroded piece of crap must be one of the models named, and it could not possibly be overpriced for its condition. I bet the name is on that chainguard.

I debated whether to post this in the "looking" thread. This is a Cannondale Bugger kid trailer. That's really what it's called. Rear facing, plastic tub chassis.

There have been one, or maybe a couple for sale locally... for quite some time. Cute...

Cannondale Bicycle Trailer - $130 (Washburne)

It looks like the kids either sit backwards, or lay down rocket ship style.

Presumably if you attach it to the seatpost, it lifts them up a bit.

That is to keep fingers out of spokes. These are pretty neat for little ones. We had one for a while. I saved the axle and wheels for a future trailer build. I have to get to that someday.

The ad's not wacky, but look at the drive side pedal eye. Do my eyes deceive me, or is it off-center?

Might as well post a size large enough for some of us to see.



I don't think the hole actually is off-center.

What appears to be off-center is the polishing/finishing of the edge of the crank.

Sorry. I linked to the ebay image. I didn't think it would be any larger than that.

So this is an example of a single forging used for multiple lengths? The Compass/Rene Herse peeps make a point of telling you each length gets its own forging.

There are a couple things wrong here. Can you guess what they are?

https://sanantonio.craigslist.org/bo...843031855.html

4 kids bikes - $30

I have 4 kids bikes that are all missing something they are flat mostly. I'm asking $7 each or $30 for all 4.
