What makes auto-correct so frustrating (at least on my Android phone) is that it will change correctly spelled words. I use SWYPE, so there is going to be some measure of path inaccuracy, but sometimes, I will type a work key-by-key, only to discover the word I want (spelled correctly) isn't in the phone's dictionary, so I have to add it.

It would be one thing if I was a horrible speller, but I am the walking dictionary of my family.

DWIM, dammit!

Vintage Celeste Bianchi Steel Bike Campagnolo - $375 (Concord)





craigslist - Map data OpenStreetMap
(google map)

make / manufacturer: bianchi
This classic Bianchi steel road bike was hand crafted in Italy in the 1980's with original iconic 'Celeste' paintwork & decals showing its authenticity.

Frame measures 58 cm c-c with a 56 cm top tube and still has the original Campagnola shifting/crank/derailleur plus Equipe Mondolo brakes.

Looking for an authentic Bianchi to tune into your daily ride, look no further this is your bicycle. These vintage bicycles are getting rarer and their hand craftsmanship makes them timeless. Serious inquires only.
do NOT contact me with unsolicited services or offers

Vintage Bianchi limited bike - $199 (Haverhill)





condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Bianchi
model name / number: Limited
Vintage bianchi bike in good shape. Shimano 600 components. All original. Pretty tall bike, stand over height is just over 32inches. I rode it around after pulling it out of the garage and it worked as expected, tires hold air, but rear leaks slowly. I wouldn't take it out on a busy street without going over it yourself, but it seems to be in great shape. Delivery to public transportation available with deposit.

199 text or email.

Trek 650b Conversion 56cm - $400 (Harvard)


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!
Nifty!

Do the 650 wheels make it fit like a smaller frame? Maybe the fatter tires make up the difference?

1984 MASI on eBay Los Angeles area! ends today

This is a pretty nice looking MASI, and I'd guess from ser# it might be a Rob Roberson MASI which is pretty cool.
Could be a really good deal for someone!

Both like need an oherhaul to get fresh grease in the bearing.

Although it is Japanese built or Taiwanese(?) it looks little used and at $200 for a full Chromo frame and very low miler 600 group it is a great deal.

That '85 Campione looks nice too with a mix of Nuovo Record derailleurs and chainrings, S.R. crank arms with G.S. BB Victory seatpin, headset and hubs with Modolo brakes looks like a good deal too. the only obvious downside I see is the torn brake hoods. I think replacements are still around but I would likely swap them out for the late '90s Campagnol levers. The Campione was 2nd from the top that year with only the Mondiale on top. {I excluded the Centenario because it is a special model and not something in the 'normal' lineup** most all of the Italian bikes used the Columbus Special frame set.

Checking the pics again I noticed the Campione's wheels are swapped out. If they are just no name generic or lowend shimano hubs I'd try and haggle down to $300ish.

Does anyone know if the rear wheel set/ Campy cassette noted above would fit on a '74 Paramount P13-9 (I'd likely ditch the rims)?

The PO on my bike left the original rear wheel at the bike shop when he equipped the bike with a wheelset better suited to hills. Needless to say, when he went back to get the wheelset sometime after he took delivery of the now customized bike, the original wheelset had vanished.

I'd like to get something close to original back on the bike.

Thanks! Really appreciate the response.
I have emailed the owner of the Campione, asking about the wheels. They will let me know in the evening.
The Limited seems more to my size though. I am 6'2" with abnormally long arms

The outside diameter of a 700x23 tire and a 650x42 is about the same. A 38mm tire might make the bike 4mm lower than a 42mm tire would.

The fit of the frame shouldn't change, but the standover height and bottom bracket height will probably be lower with 650B rims and tires than the same frame with 700x32 wheels and tires.

I'm just persistently irritated at how much of a fetish autocorrect thinks I have with waterfowl. As if any human on the planet really spends all day long talking about how many ducks they give, the duck is happening, or thinks people run around constantly ducking around as if things are being thrown at them left and right.

Somewhat unusual mix of parts (but good parts), probably a 600-series Trek, given the 531 tubing:

It sure looks like one. I was kind of hoping someone here would buy it but put the wheels up for sale/trade.
