Yeah, no doubt a good deal if it was his. I have my doubts though. I was interested in it, but from all the photos I've seen of Greg riding, it appears to be a size too large for him.

in his book, greg says he rode approx 54.8 cm bike(c to c, i think) also, someone noted that the colors on that bike didnt match the ones shown in the pic of lemond riding, the supposedly, same bike. i have my doubts as well but i guess the person that shelled out that much cash was confident.

For some reason forks can look bent in a photo or even in real life when, in fact, they're not. (And I'm not talking about "rake" - I'm talking about a bent fork from a collision.) From certain angles, when I look at my Trek from across the room, I could swear the fork is bent; get up closer and clearly it's not. So unless the damage is obvious, I find it hard to tell if a fork is bent from a photo.

It did have a c-record group...that alone is worth much of the cost.

I could be wrong but... I think whoever put the decals back on this or 'rebranded' it put them on wrong. I never saw alot of Rossins but I don't think the decals went this way

I'm fairly confident its an original Rossin. $800 is a fair asking price for a well used Italian Croce Delta brakes.

Assuming its NOT one of Greg LeMonds personal bikes $1375 is a very fair price for a well ridden C-Record Delta bike w/ Ergo levers. While you have to consider shipping charges into the final price its possible someone in France bought and picked it up localy. $350 shipping is to the U.S......we dont know where its going.

60cm Trek 330 Road Bicycle for sale- Beautiful! - $350 (cambridge)

Reply to: sale-hjntw-1678588968@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

Trek 330 road bicycle for sale.

60cm top tube, 63cm seat tube (c-t). Frame size would likely fit someone 6'+. I'm 5'10" and it's a little too big for me.

Fully lugged frame construction. Made out of quality true temper 4130 steel. Fantastic condition- very few paint chips/scratches are present.
Bicycle rides amazing. New handlebar tape. Well maintained. Rear Rack included.

12 speed.

Fantastic bike for commuting, road riding, or simply for fun.

i listed this as unisex because a lot of ladies like a mens bike for the frame strenth, and the cross bar is low enough for an average ladies hight. this is a high end italian made bike. it's in above average condition, (it looks new). call jay 1 781 344 3325 or marsha 1 774 719 2073

Very Tall Lotus Road Bike - $300 (Arlington)

Date: 2010-04-05, 10:52PM EDT
Reply to: sale-zy6ge-1678342840@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

Very Clean and perfectly tuned 27" Lotus Excelle Sport 12 speed. This bike is a 27" frame. Good for folks AT LEAST 6' 3" tall. Alloy wheels & components, light weight tripple butted Chome Moly frame (reynolds 4130 tubing). Shimano Tourney Crank set, & Shimano 600 deraileurs. Handle bar end shifters, nice foam handlebar grips, Selle San Marco Seat. Very clean, always stored in-doors and runs perfectly. Nice Rear alloy bike rack. Top tube is relatively short for frame height, so this is a great bike for folks with lower back pain/iseues. More pics availible. Bike measures 37.5" off ground so this is truly a basketball players bike (if you don't wear at least 36" inseem pants, this bike is too tall for you). Horizontal drop-outs with adjustable stops so bike could also be used for a great fixed/singlespeed conversion.
