I agree, Deore DX and a chrome fork. looks like a great deal for a funky late '80s MTB.

Nice lugged Schwinn Paramount 90 PGD series bike for the smaller rider.

Other than the cross-chaining, it looks pretty nice. Not sure if I believe the "only ridden 25 miles" as it has Deore XT brake pads on a full Suntour XC Pro group. But then again that large chainring looks pretty mint.

This looks like a very nice bike at fair pricing:

Dx-4000 for $285

https://philadelphia.craigslist.org/bik/4975594320.html




[FONT=Arial][FONT=inherit][FONT=Helvetica Neue][FONT=inherit][FONT=inherit]

[LIST[/LIST]


For sale is a super nice red 85' Panasonic DX4000. It's a 56cm good for riders in the 5-9" - 6-0" range. Unlike the lower end DX1000/2000 models the 4000 is very hard to find and was the top DX model in 1985. This one is in very nice condition and is all original except for the tires and tape.

The bike comes with a complete Shimano 600 group including the F/R derailleurs, headset, crank, hubs, shifters, brake calipers and levers, and even the pedals. All of the equipment is in very nice condition. The Wheelset is the original Araya red label 700cc and the cassette is a close ratio 7-speed (14 total). The saddle is the original Italia Turbo Bernard Hinault in very well kept condition with just a small scuff on the drive side corner.

Cosmetically the bike looks great and is super clean. A handful of very small nicks here and there but nothing that detracts from the overall appearance. The paint shines nice, the logos are in good shape and there is not a speck of rust. The frame is made of high end Tange 2 steel and rides smooth. The bike is very light as well.

Overall a really cool vintage road bike that's ready to ride and really doesn't need anything. Happy to meet you to check it out and purchase for cash only. Thanks for looking.

Seems a a little steep for 105. Nice frame, though.

Posting some $50 mountain bikes and a road bike with a tiny thumbnail pic. Where were all these inexpensive bikes when the Velo-Cheapo thing was still going? Winter CL sucks in Minneapolis.

The coolest mtb I've ever seen. Head tube angle, color, bars, short wheelbase. That thing is sweet.

Time Trial Eddy Merckx Caloi Branded Motorola Team Bicycle | eBay



Here is a once in a lifetime opportunity for the most ardent Merckx collector. Up for auction a very special bicycle, a custom Eddy Merckx MX Leader rebadged to promote Caloi, a Motorola sponsor for the 1995/1996 season. The Eddy Merckx MX Leader is considered by many to be the finest steel racing bicycle ever made, period. But if you're looking at this auction, you most likely know this already. This bike was built specifically for one event. The team time trial for the 1995 Tour de France. It was built for Wiebren Veenstra. He was on the Motorola team for only the 1995 season. Sadly he did not make the cut for the TDF squad, therefore this bike was only used for training purposes. The overall condition is very good considering it was put in a cargo container with hundreds of other bikes when it was shipped to the states from Belgium. The most notable flaw is a dent (see picture) in the top tube caused by the cow horn bars. Some specifics on parts, 8 speed Dura Ace 7410 series components throughout with a few SRP bits to lighten the load. A pantograghed Cinelli stem, with Cinelli handlebars and prototype Profile aero bars. The front wheel is a Mavic Carbone 650c tubular for cross wind stability, the rear wheel is a 700c Specialized Tri-Spoke tubular. The saddle is a Selle Italia Flite Max. Note the STI shifters, (and the blue Motorola cable housings) these were used specifically for the team time trial bikes since the only time a rider needed to be in the aero position was when the rider was at the head of the train. Once a rider did his pull, he peeled off to drift to the back of the train. The bike is much safer and better handling to be on the cow horn instead of the temptation to ride in the aero position while navigating the corners in such a tightly knit group of riders. The bike as it stands is in its original form right down to the tires as the day it was picked up from the Motorola Team headquarters in Waukesha WI in the late fall of 1996 when the team disbanded. Sizing: seatpost from the center of the bottom bracket to the center of the top tube is 48 cm from the center of the bottom bracket to the top of the seat post clamp is 54cm. The top tube measures 53cm center to center, the stem length is 90mm. The crank arm length is 172.5mm. 73 cm stand over.
