Red 20" Trek 330. Great commuting/road bike. Love this bike and if I weren't moving wouldn't be selling it! Needs a quick tune up, all parts in working order, just hasn't been ridden over the winter (stored in a dry heated basement). U-Lock, cord, and front LED light included if you want.

condition: like new
make / manufacturer: Trek
model name / number: 670
size / dimensions: 56cm
Trek 650b conversion. It's a 670 model from 1985 with Reynolds 531cs tubing. It's modeled after the "Frek" featured in Bicycle Quarterly. The bike is mix of NOS Deore XT and new bits, including the sunXCD rims, Phill BB, White Industries crank, Compass Loup Loup tires, Tektro long reach, and nitto stem. Bike is a blast. Perfect for D2R2!

Looks like a very nice 650B conversion. If anyone here buys this bike I'll gladly reimburse you half the purchase price if you send me the crankset, bottom bracket, and rear derailleur!

^ That Miyata looks like it's in great condition. If it was my size I would grab it in a heartbeat.

Maybe he can be talked down?


Redcay touring bike, light on details, and those presented are likely wrong.

Brent,

Just buy the whole thing.

The tires and the crank are worth the asking price.

It would be very difficult to pass on this bike if it were local.

That's a lot of bike for the money. Can't imagine it not already been spoken for.

1957 Cinelli Super Corsa

Any guesses on where the bidding will end up? In today's market, it may be quite palatable. Just a bit small for me.

If that bike was in St. Louis I would have bought it. Too small for me.

Seems like close to a $1000.00 package if you had to start from scratch.

If sent the seller a message telling him that it was a very tasteful bike.

I've heard these being referred to as a Rainbow Traut (play on Trout & Eisentraut), supposedly because the fish decals would change color at different angles. Master framebuilder who also taught many current American framebuilders.

I'm thinking two large. (Though it's too small for me, and my wallet is filled with moths, so I won't be bidding.)
