The DX2000 is actually a 28" frame, not a 27", so you get more for your money. You would not believe how many of these sold to guys about 5'6" to 5'8" tall determined to have the biggest (and therefore the baddest) bike around.

It's not very often a 3Rensho bike comes up for sale, I hope a shorter person here will see that and run to go get it, those were nice bikes built by the foremost master frame builder in Japan, this would be the equivalent to buying a Richard Sachs bike built in America! The guy selling it doesn't know what he has, he thinks the frame is made of aluminum instead of steel.

Very early in the morning, a few weeks ago, I saw a very small Centurion Ironman on the Portland, OR CL. Looked to be around 45cm size, had a smaller, 24?" front wheel and asking price was very low, maybe $85? Didn't even click to read the ad, but decided to get the info and check it out that afternoon as 1 of my grand daughters is very petite, of course by then the ad was down. You snooze you lose. Don

Wow, the racks, fenders, saddle, and bag retail for more than half the bike's cost.

It's looks to be just your size too. Why are you posting it instead of buying it?

The seller has been posting this for about a year now and I have been tempted several times because of the LeMond connection and unique colors.

I know you didn't write the listing; you're just the messenger.

I don't get 'touring' bikes that don't have rack mounts. What makes it a touring bike?

It does look nice, aside from the rusty chain.

Here is another very nice bike that won't seem to sell. It has been listed over and over for a long time. The price, IIRC, started at $1000. It is a very nice frame with a smart functional build.

At this price, I am pretty tempted as it is nearly my exact size. If it were black, it would be with me now

https://boston.craigslist.org/nos/bik/5674356951.html



1980 Serotta Club Special 57cm - $500 (NH)







condition: good
make / manufacturer: Serotta
model name / number: Club Special


Price is firm, bike is packed up and ready to move as it is listed in other online forums and eBay.

Additional photos: cmpbay's Library | Photobucket

Good condition Serotta Club Special lugged steel road frame & fork with Dura-Ace headset, 60cm ctc seat tube and 57cm ctc top tube. It is from the early 1980s, Columbus SL tubing, Cinelli BB shell and Campagnolo drop outs. It has a Serotta factory repaint from some time in the 90s. It is rust free, has no dents and the paint is in fair shape - it has plenty of character and would love another factory repaint someday. A really high quality classic road racing frame from a Premier builder at that time. Looks great and rides even better. 126mm rear spacing, English threaded BB, 27.2 diameter seatpost.

Bike is spec'd with an assortment of parts to make it rideable and enjoyable, not just an attempt at slapping period parts together. I bought the bare frame and built it last year, putting 300 fair weather miles on it before putting it away. I have way too many bikes and it's on the small side for me (I'm 6'2") so off to a deserving new owner.

Wheels/Tires: Mavic MA40 CD. 32h Shimano 600 tricolor hubset. Tires are Specialized All Condition 25mm. Wheelset and tires are in excellent condition and straight.

Saddle: Black/white Specialized Romin 143mm, steel rails

Bar/Stem: Period appropriate Scott branded TTT 130mm quill stem and 42cm handlebars

Bar tape: Fizik white 2mm Superlight Microtex bar tape

Seatpost: Dura Ace 7400

Brakes and Derailleurs: Ultegra 6500

Shifters: Dura Ace SL-7700

Levers: SRAM S500

Crank: Ultegra 6650 50x34 Compact 175mm, ice grey

Chain/Cassette: Dura Ace/Ultegra 12-25

This was a higher level than my Black Lightning, which is surprisingly not teeth-rattling. But the difference between mine and the higher level 3.0 here is mine has a steel fork. Cannondale started going to aluminum forks in '89 I think.
