Agreed. I have the same bike and keep emailing this guy asking if I can buy the saddle since the OO of my Campione replaced it with an ugly black one. No response.

Aaah... I have no space for this, but if I did, I'd be looking for a facilitator. They do not come up very often at all.

Not necessarily top of the line.

But the price is good for the altitude challenged. Perhaps a mixed component group.

Miele Road Bike - $50



I can probably facilitate.

A beautiful 25" Maruishi RX-7 (isn't an RX-7 a car, though?.....) for a really nice price at $150. My size, but I have no room and just want to ride the bikes I have for a little bit. To someone else!



Gorgeous smaller Cannondale T700 Touring bike for $245 ready-to-ride (I believe it). Paint and decals...wow. Gearing is very good for hills.

I've been eyeballing that Maruishi, but need the spot in the garage for a Miyata 914 instead. I really just need a bigger garage.....

That really is a gem. Strapping the eagle eyes on, I noticed the rear rack. Is that a failure in the brazing?

[Looks up Miyata 914]

Oooooh, good choice. I will slot the idea of one of those in the back of my mind for later, haha. I just need a larger space as well.

Sure looks that way. But I wouldn't let it influence my decision to buy the bike, if I were in the position to meet whatever the reserve is to bid on the auction. My guess is $1,000.

But I'm not in that position, so I'll just look at the pretty pictures.

Neat bike, you don't see too many of these. Cyclone, Gran Compe, Sugino cranks, nice condition. I'd say this is a good deal at $300.

The only hitch is, local pickup only. And too tall for me.
