Sorry about the crappy pix. If you'd like more, I can go back, just a couple blocks from my house. Price on the sticker was $159.99, but the sales guy said 20% off (don't know for how long).

60 CM Rivendell

Who doesn't need a big lavender bike?


This is Rivendell's top-of-the-line 650B lugged frameset made in Japan by Toyo Frame. The Saluki was later renamed as the A Homer Hilsen but is no longer available in the larger sizes for 650B. The AHH is still made by Toyo and sold only as made-to-order without cantilever brake mounts, selling for $2300 and complete for $3500 or more. The custom wheelset is handbuilt by Anthony King, proprietor of Longleaf Bicycles. The frame is custom finished in a stunning agapanthus purple color, simply dazzling in direct sunlight. Components and specifications are as follows:

Frame: fully lugged 60cm w. cantilever brake mounts and fender & F&R rack mounts
TT CC: 58.5cm
ETT: 59cm
ST CC: 58cm
ST CT: 60cm
Rear spacing: 132.5mm
Seatpost: Nitto Jaguar
Saddle: Regal
Headset: Shimano Ultrega
Stem: Nitto 9cm
Handlebar: Nitto Noodle 44cm
Handlebar tape: Newbaums plum
Crankset: Sugino Alpina 175mm double
Bottom Bracket:
Chainrings: Sugino 48-34
Pedals: MKS Touring
Front Rack: Nitto F32
Fenders: Honjo fluted 55mm
Brakeset: F - Paul Neo Retro; R - Paul Touring Canti; Paul F cable hanger; Paul Moon units
Brake levers: Tektro black
Shifters: Suntour Shimano Ultrega 8-speed bar-end index or friction
F Derailleur: Suntour Superbe
R Derailleur: Shimano Ultrega
Chain: KMC 8-speed
Front wheel: Pacenti PL21 32H rim on a Shutter Precision SV-8 dyno hub
Rear wheel: Pacenti PL21 32H rim on a Velo Orange 8-9-10 speed cassette hub
Cassette: Shimano 8-speed 13-14-15-17-19-21-23-26
Tires: Compass 650b 42-584 Babyshoe Pass extralight with tubes
Headlight: Busch & Muller Luxos B 70 lux
Taillight: Busch & Muller Secula

A few paint chips have been retouched but it otherwise has no dings, dents or drama. This size bike best fits someone of normal proportions from 5'11'' to 6'2'' in height. The bike is fully assembled, ready to comfortably ride, day or night.

Very good condition c.1983 Trek 760 racing bike, 58cm size.
This bike was hand assembled in WI when Trek was a 7 year old company, transitioning from a boutique frame builder to what it is today.
According to Sheldon Brown (RIP) and the catalog from vintage-trek.com, this bike is one of the world's finest examples of silver soldered Reynolds 531c (the c is for competition), with custom butted steel tubing throughout, including stays and fork, not just main tubes like cheaper bikes. The build quality and refinement put Italian bikes of the same era "to shame".
What I know is that it rides great and looks great, weighs in at 20.5 lbs as pictured complete with arty pedals and Brooks saddle, but is a size too large for me, so I am finally admitting to my 5'8"-ness and passing it on.
Currently setup as a single speed with a fixed / free flipflop hub, but easily converted back to the original 12 spd downtube shifters.
I purchased ~10 yrs ago and built the wheels, changed bars, and added saddle and copper shiny bits.
I assume the bike spent many years hanging in a garage as a spare bike, as I managed to put the first scratches on the brake levers by leaning it on a building for 1 minute for a pedestrian to brush against and knock it to the ground
always kept clean and out of the rain, primary use as sunny day commuter.
Original parts on bike:
-frame, fork, paint (except a few chips covered in Testors French Blue model paint to prevent rust) with NO dings or major scratches.
-Suntour Superbe crank
-Suntour Superbe brake levers (see scratches on one) with super cool lightening holes
-Suntour Superbe brakes w/ original pads (indication of limited miles!)
-Cinelli stem
New parts on bike:
-Aluminum hubs from Milwaukee Bicycle Co. laced to vintage Ambrosio tubular rims w/ new spokes and nipples.
-excellent Conti gatorskin tubular tires with little wear. If you haven't tried tubulars don't be afraid! They ride great, are durable, don't get pinch flats, and easy to change in the field.
-origin 8 moustache bars, shellaced cotton bar tape.
-Nitto crystal fellow seatpost
-Brooks B17 professional saddle just breaking in with a few hundred miles on it.
-Sogreni Danish art bike copper pedals with VO half clips
-Copper bell mounted to shifter boss, problem solver covers on bosses.
-new dura-ace brake cables
-copper plated bottle cage
This bike will come with a box of original and/or period appropriate parts in case you want to restore it or ride in a L'Eroica event:
-original Cinelli drop bars
-original Suntour Superbe shifters and derailleurs.
-original Avocet saddle (OK shape but not great)
-spare set of period appropriate wheels: front: early Dura-Ace hub,tubular Mavic rim, rear: Campagnolo low flange hub, clincher Rigida rim w/Regina corncob 6 spd freewheel.

2 cruiser bikes (his and hers)

Houston Galleria area.

not sure wth these are, but maybe worth a look? the paint colors looks 70s to me, and they both seem to be in good condition.

It's not a turd, with quality components and Ishiwata tubing. I can't see if it's 024 or 022 tubing, or what the model is. The frame quirks look similar to my Paragon (024) but the components are one step up (Shimano 600 which became Ultegra), so probably the frame is 022. It's big! Hope you are tall! I can see a few obvious problems (the left shifter, crusty saddle and tires, etc.) but nothing fundamentally wrong overall.

If you want it for a parts donor for a Schwinn Prelude, most of the drivetrain should work. But...
  • I'm guessing the brakes will be too long and the wheels & tires too big, depending on the Prelude year.
  • Prelude was a 6 speed and this is a 5 so the rear hub will be a big narrow.
  • It might look a little funny to have a late-80s bike with 1980-ish components, if that matters to you.

There were some early '80s American bikemakers that used Ishiwata and that includes Ross; not lame bikes.

I'd say they are about equivalent. The Prelude will probably have a few more braze-on's (shifter bosses, RD cable stop) so to me the biggest differences would be the geometry and fit, then color and condition, then everyhing else.

This is a pretty good bike for the price even though it needs some TLC and updating.

Maybe nicer but also older, and late 80s Schwinns are much beloved while Ross is kind of obscure, especially this vintage. So there's a lot of stuff we don't know about it. Maybe one of our catalog oracles will weigh in.

I was once reading a website of this fellow and he showed off (not being a show-off literally, his collection) his bikes and there was a Lang. Or was it Laing?

Here is a Colin Laing. UK has some great bike-makers, we know a handful right off the bat but they have had a number of makers.

Shorter chain stays definitely.

A jolly nice bike.

Walter Croll anyone?

Croll Road Bike Reynolds 853 105 5800 Mavic




Hi Selling one Walter Croll Reynolds 853 Team racing bike. Size 59. Well crafted frame with a mix of tig weld and fillet brazing. Frame is from 90s and other than some paint chips is in great shape.
Component group is a new Shimano 105 5800 11 speed group. It was put on new so a friend could ride pan mass. Group set has about 700 miles only.
Wheelset is a lightly used Mavic Ksyrium Equipe.
Stem, seat post and bars(Rivendell Mark bar)are all newer Nitto.
Saddle is Velo Orange that is brooks professional equivalent.
Pedals and cages negotiable if wanted.
This is a fast comfy racing bike.
Feel free to ask questions

------------------
Small, I love a bike in a nice forest green.
