Maybe you need to be that high above the snow in Alaska. Does look like it's nicely done.

Some tall person, please buy this De Rosa. It has been on my local CL for over 6 years now. No price change, no updated pics. Just the same grubby bike, poorly photographed, relisted over and over and over...

That would probably fit me and I'll be visiting my parents about 45 minutes south of there in a couple weeks, but I just don't have room in the budget for another. Even if I didn't think it was a bit overpriced.

This Huffy "Titanium" was so light they had to weigh down the handlebars so it didn't float away! I wonder if they made a Huffy "Carbon"

Vintage Benito Road bike. Recently tuned up with new gears, brakes, tape. Needs a new seat as it a a bit worn but useable. Tire tubes need replacing. Tires themselves recently replaced. Great bike, just don’t have room for it anymore.

"Ride as is". the seller says - look at the top tube 😱. I don't think so, especially at 80 quid!

A very nice bike however neither rare nor worth anything close to $650, funnier still I recently saw this at the Local Deserett Industries (Mormon Salvation Army) with a ‘sold’ tag. Also listed in a market where equally pristine high end mountain bikes of the same era often sell for as little as $50.

With round chainstays, no bend, indent or oval, plus vertical DOs, probably means 21 mm tires, maybe 23 mm max. People were dumb back then!
