Interesting Cinelli-esque lugs on a Trek. My '78 Columbus-framed 930 has nothing of the sort.

What do folks think of that last one? I'm actually moderately tempted (been looking for my first brifter'd bike) -- but it might be slightly too big for me.

Agreed. The first thought that came to my mind was, 'That's pretty nice for a Trek'. (Yes, I'm prejudiced.)

IMO the late 70's and early 80's Treks are really very nice.

If memory serves, the Cassnova was the budget version of the Primato. Essentially the same bike, including the really cool BB shell fins, but with Brain tubing instead of EL OS. It goes by another name as well, maybe san remo (can't remember). It's probably a great riding bike.

There was a pretty red one on Serotta/paceline forums for the longest time...I don't think it sold. You may want to check that out.

Price seems pretty reasonable for an OS tubed De Rosa. A Primato would go double.

My 1979 Columbus SP frame TX900 has the same lugs as in the picture. I'm more surprised by the braze on shifters and top-tube cable guides.

That paint color is spot on too. Absolutely beautiful with the silver campy bits.

I was under the impression that these were semi-built-to-order so maybe that explains what that frame has them?

The early Trek price lists have costs per braze-on listed. $10 for TT cable guides. No mention of lug options though. Did all TX900s come with Cinelli-style lugs?

$380 seems fairly reasonable. I'd like to know more about wheels, cranks, shifters, etc.

Seems like someone's mad at the dude asking $380 just because he bought it for $100, then fixed it up a little. Pffft.

Found the actual ad for the bike. I'd say a little rough for that price. Blaze is kinda low end parts.

maybe $250

My Casanova was a great rider.

The one I had was a wild purpleish blue with yellow.

I would recommend it.

The price may be a bit high, but it is a unique bike, and the right color.

SLX in this size, SPX in the two largest sizes. The earlier Nova was SL or SP, the "Special X" denotes, SLX or SPX. A very good bike.

Very cool bike. Personally, I'd say the price is very compelling, but I know others here would disagree with me

The price is outrageous but this is pretty rare, a Masi 3V with the Russian team graphics

1990 MASI 3V Volumetrica CCCP





This is also hard to find, especially in such good condition and it is cheap too!

Pinarello cyclocross





And another rarity, a cheap Rossin Prestige that looks to be in great condition.

Vintage Italian 90's Rossin 55/56 great shape, box of extra parts.
