Holiday bicycles aren't rare generally but this one appears to be, vintage 1950s I'd say or earlier?, balloon tires, nice.

Free air at Holiday, maybe they were more like a department store at one time.

[h=2]Bianchi lugged steel 55cm with SRAM build - or best offer - $899 (NH/MA) [/h]









make / manufacturer: Bianchi
model name / number: Campione d'Italia
size / dimensions: 55 cm



Bike located in Manchester NH but I'm willing to meet up in southern NH or northern Mass.

Price drop!

Steel is real. Unfortunately, this steel is just a little too small for me. I loved it for awhile (it actually wasn't too bad for me at 6-1) but I got the itch for a new steel bike. Great bike and a really great and comfortable ride.

55 cm lugged Bianchi steel. SRAM build, 10 speed.

RD - Force
FD - Rival
Crank - Red, 52/36 gearing
Shifters - one Red and one Force
Brakes - Rival
Cassette - 11-28 1070 (force level)
Handlebar - Zipp 42 cm c-c Alloy
Stem - cannondale (I got it for the silver color) in 110
Saddle - not a great one, saddles are so personal it's not worth trying to sell a bike with a nice one
Wheels - Neuvation clinchers (can be run tubeless if you set them up)
Tires - Michelin Pro4 23s (can swap to some 25s of another model if you'd like)

The fork is threaded but it's running an adapter to use a threadless stem (works great and is easier to use than a threaded stem).

This is my last 10 speed bike and I have an extra chain and some cassettes that I can include for the right price.

Tons of 700s and 900s on ATL CL right now. I think only one has suspension forks

EDIT: Damn, looks like half of them sold in the last 48 hours. Crazy. Many in the $60-130 range. All that's left is mostly $200+

Claim this is a 1989 Miyata team bike, so yes, quite expensive:

Speaking of Miyata.

Lotus Unique bicycle
Claim is this is a unique Lotus bike, it's not that expensive but smallish.

Plenty of $20 tires are better (more supple for sure) than Gatorskins. I personally find the Vittoria Rubino III and Forte Pro+ tires to be superior to Gatorskins at half the price.

First-gen Shimano 105, eh?

I believe they got the date wrong on this one, pretty sure it's late 50's, the RD/FD are roughly 20 years older, the stamped rear DO has me questioning the suggested model, and the shipping is a deal-killer IMO, but here's a pre-70s Peugeot with a TT ding for $50 + $70 ship: Vintage 1962 Peugeot PX 10 Road Bike Parts | eBay

I asked this guy for the size this morning and he replied just now that a guy contacted him about the bike, came out to see it, and stole it. Terrible. (Now THAT's gotta be the biggest seller's peeve). Be aware, sell and buy only in public places, and have someone with you during the transaction.

That is terrible. Maybe the thief took a test ride and never came back. And of course, the famous movie called "The bicycle thief" comes to mind.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bicycle_Thieves

One time, I was on my bike near a semi-busy street but near a fairly good neighborhood; and this guy was in a hurry on a specialized, he didn't fit the image of a bike rider and at first, he rode against traffic a few feet, seeing how he might get clobbered, he picked up the bike on got on the sidewalk. I thought at the time, something didn't look right and I've come to the conclusion a little later, he was probably stealing that bike but what is one going to do?

I use to work where we had a big underground parking lot with a bike parking area; and one of the cyclists to work had one of those tiny cable combo lock chains for his Pinarello; my cable wire cutters could cut that lock and I told him, like "Dude!" And not too long after, he got a better lock though, it was probably somewhat secure there. One shouldn't take too many chances. I got a bike stolen because I loaned it out, it wasn't the greatest bike so it was not a terrible loss but I know how it goes.

Fun fact: 9 out of 10 Px10's are not PX10s.

Cool little bike there, though. Love the lugs.

I may be overlooking something, but it seems as if a bike could still be ridden away on a test ride, or ridden to a vehicle and then taken away, even from a public place, and even if someone were with you.

How can you make these transactions more secure?

Perhaps insist on buyer leaving car keys or something of value with you during test ride?

Use one of your other bikes to tag along on the test-ride. Or have them leave their driver's license with you while they ride.

Buyer wants a test ride, the seller gets to hold the buyer's money for the bike.
