These Cyclocross frames have a reduced bottom bracket drop. The frame may have a 58cm c-t-t seat-tube length but probably fits like a 60cm c-t-t seat-tube length road bike frame. I'd ignore the seat-tube length and focus on the 58cm top-tube length.

My finger is twitching..........

Problem is I am downsizing atm.

This would qualify as a backslide and require me to sell the Merckx AluCross and the Croll rando to show commitment here at the hacienda.

Hmmmmmm.

Congrats, it was a very pretty bike, I liked it but that is a heavy bike.

By the way there is a brake pad you can use that will stop wet chrome wheels better than any other pad, in fact other pads barely stop you if the chrome is wet; anyways see: Search results for raincheater If you're going to ride stay as safe as possible in all conditions and get a set of those pads...just make sure you get the right one and that they'll fit your calipers before you buy.

No pad, not even those Fibrax pads will stop you well, see this for a demonstration of 3 different type of pads being used on a wet steel chrome rims:
After you watch that video if you get caught in the rain be REAL careful and ride slow to try to prevent panic stops. I almost think you could stop faster by dragging your feet on the ground like I had to do as kid to stop my bike with those damn chrome wheels.

Of course the best thing to do is buy a set of aluminum rims which will end those long distances to stop thing going on with the chrome wheels, not to mention probably save you close to about 20 pounds in rotating weight! Then just save those chrome wheels for when you want to show off the bikes gleaming chrome attributes when it's sunny, dry, with no chance of rain or fog.

Go for it - I'll bet you could get 38's in there.
All-roader is right - I picked up a cheap Trek XO-1 last year and it has become my go-to ride - it can do anything and go anywhere. Skinny tires, fat tires, fenders - it don't care.

So- talk to me about the Merckx AluCross <G>

Nobilette Road Bike Hand Built in Ann Arbor

$500
Thinning the herd! Late 1980s Nobilette 57cm road bike hand built in Ann Arbor by Mark Nobilette. White with red accents. Vintage Campagnolo Record gruppo and wheel set. Needs new rear sew-up tire (included) glued on. Classic Scott Drop-In handlebars as used by Greg Lemond. Saddle and pedals not included. Frame was built for a local racer who never built it up. I bought it as new from Mark around 1990 and have put thousands of pleasurable miles on it.

57cm Seat Tube - center of Top Tube to center of Bottom Bracket.
56.5cm Top Tube - center of Seat Tube to center of Head Tube.
do NOT contact me with unsolicited services or offers

Sadly parted out. Frame's now on Facebook.

Looks scammy...picture obviously not theirs, way undervalued if that actually is the bike for sale.

Hope you either didn't give them a phone# or gave them a Google Voice or forwarded one.

1981 Univega Super Strada, the brand's number two bike in the lineup at the time I believe (in the 'pro' category no less), for $250 obo.
'81 Univega Super Strada -12 Speed - 56cm


I think most of the components are original and while it isn't pristine, it looks like it's in good riding shape

VINTAGE Specialized frame&fork&more-- singlespeed/commuting/touring



This is a late80's or very early90's Specialized Stumpjumper (17"). I bought this not too long ago to have done up for my gf into a 26" single speed commuter but i never got it done. High quality chromo direct drive frame/fork. Has had the xtra rack/fender mounts added needed for touring or commuting. It was powdercoated greyish purple by the previous owner and hasnt been on the road since, it was stored in packing blankets and looks brand new, no scratches. The pics dont do it justice by any means. The color sort of goes from a sparkle grey to light purple depending on the light. Comes with a bunch of neat stuff: super nice japan tange headset with the inner rubber seals, shimano cartridge bottom bracket, really cool vintage japanese "strong" brand seatpost, vintage Specialized quick release seat lever, and all the good oldschool stainless waterbottle/rack/fender bolts installed. The buyer will have to come pick up, cant ship it. Cash only. WIll remove ad when sold, so no need to ask if its still for sale.

We exchanged a couple of emails, they sent me their number, and here's about how the conversation went down:

Me: "I'm interested in checking out your bike, but I'm kinda confused by the disconnect between your description and the photo. Do you have a Peugeot for sale?"

Him: "Yeah, I just grabbed that photo because it looked about the same year and color. We haven't taken any pics yet. But we did just put a fresh coat of white paint on it." ("Oh good lord, no!" I'm thinking to myself)

Me: "So, do you know what year of a Peugeot it is?"

Him: "It's a 1972."

So I arrange to go look at it, with visions and hopes in my head that it's something like this:

https://www.bikeforums.net/13149579-post377.html

I get there, and he has the bike out in front of the garage. YIKES! With the exception of the wheels and tires, everything has been rattle-canned white. And I mean even the downtube shifters and derailleurs. But even so, I can tell that this is CLEARLY not a 1972 Peugeot anything. More like maybe a 70s Sears Free Spirit, if even that.

Even still, I gently explain to him that you shouldn't paint over any bike, as someone like me, who is a collector/restorer, is looking for certain defining headbadges, tubing stickers, etc. He turns the bike over and shows me the serial number, asking if he might be able to find any info on the internet based on that. I explain that you need more than a number for that, such as the make and model.

Long story short, I left without the bike. He asked if there was somewhere he might be able to donate it, and I pointed him to the local recycle/refurbish bike shop here in town.

Like they say, if it's too good to be true, it probably isn't. Oh well, it was only a 5 minute drive from home.

Fuji Street Bike - $150 (Brookline)










Up for sale is my old Fuji Street bike. It's been a while since I've ridden it, so there are some things that will need to be fixed up. The brakes will probably need to be tightened, the chain replaced. However, it seems to be in pretty good shape and works well.

Make me an offer.
