Klein Quantum II race bike
- $350 (Athens, GA)











In EXCELLENT shape, this is a classic bike that still keeps up with the new ones. 53.5 cm frame, all aluminum, brand new tires, perfect shifting. Estimated to be mid 90s. Comes with computer, pump, and 2 seats. This was almost $2000 when brand new, and the paint still shines like the day it was built

I'm working on it. Seller says Bridgestone is an RB-2 but that color for '88 is on a RB-1. Trying to clarify. He's 110 miles from me and refused to meet part way and a full price offer. I have a friend passing through his area shortly though. Please no sniping ; )

I'd guess for a couple of reasons:
1st, I believe these Cinelli MTBs are made in the usual Asian factories (specifically, Taiwan, I think) rather than hand-crafted in Italy
2nd, Has someone riding a Cinelli MTB actually ever won anything noteworthy? Certainly nothing like their historical records in road races.

That being said, that MTB posted here looks to be a pretty nice MTB for that silly low price. So much so that I may check it out.

The Manitou 4 fork is squished all the way down. I used the word "squished" for a reason. You would have to clean elastomer goo out of the inside of both legs, then find a pair of springs. It might be worth the effort... it was a nice fork BITD.

Go for it. It looks like you're not too far from where the seller is. I might be checking it out myself if it were closer. I'm in North Los Angeles. I wouldn't mind an occasional dirt grinder.

if its your size go buy that! i'd be on it in a second up here- older mtb have great frames that are overlooked. even my dime-a-dozen rockhopper has double butted cro-mo and is very light and responsive.

[h=2]VINTAGE ITALIAN- TORELLI MENS ROAD BIKE- 58 CM - COLUMBUS TUBE FRAME -$375 (WILMINGTON) [/h]



















safety tips


Up for sale is a beautiful, light weight vintage early-90's Torelli mens 12 spd. bicycle (58 cm frame). This classic road bike was made in Italy using high quality, light weight Columbus steel tubing. The bike is in very nice used condition for its age with no dings or mechanical imperfections. This bike has been off the road and stored indoors for the past 15 years, so, a full tune up is needed. The paint and graphics are in nice condition with the only significant scratch being on the top tube near the headset. Mavic MA-40 wheelset with Sach's Rival group and Modolo brakes. ITM stem and bars. Really nice Selle vintage saddle. It is definitely a great stylish, vintage ride.

The price is $375...

The bike can be seen / picked up in Wilmington most any night after 6:00 p.m. I can also meet the buyer to deliver the bike weekday afternoons in the parking lot of the Riverside Green Line stop or evenings / weekends at the Wellington Orange Line station.

PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR PHONE # IN YOUR RESPONSE... NO PHONE NUMBER, NO REPLY. Please also include the model or description of the bike that you're interested in... I usually have more than one listed and don't always know which one you're referring to. CASH ONLY.

Thank you!

Their road bikes lead, their mountain bikes follow?

I'm being glib, but I believe that's more or less (roughly) accurate.

What's wrong with the vintage bike market? I see too many bikes languishing on Ebay and Craigslist. It seems that the only bikes moving are the ones that are, in my opinion, substantially undervalued?

Well, in some markets, like Southern California, many bikes that are not made of Carbon Fiber ARE substantially undervalued - I've found that anyone who knows what they're doing can easily find a nice steel frame roadie, or steel or aluminum frame MTB or hybrid, at VERY low prices

I just bought a perfectly well maintained 853-based Lemond Zurich for $225 that was ready to ride with good bar tape and new tires and needed zero tuning. I just passed on a very nice Cannondale aluminum frame 21 speed hybrid because it was too big for me that's fully working, for $50 that was incorrectly being sold as a MTB.

There are even several Ti roadies for sale at good prices with top shelf (Ultegra, DuraAce, or good Campy groups) componentry right now in SoCal.

There are also a lot of folks who over-value their bikes, as well as a lot of folks who under-value them. I just facilitated a nice 853-based Schwinn Peloton that I bought for an East Coast forum member for $400 plus the cost to ship it, while two other very similar Pelotons are being offered for $850 and $900 at the same time around here. I would have actually kept that Peloton for myself, except it's too similar to the Lemond Zurich I bought the week before for even less that I did keep.
