First time poster to this thread but I've been lurking on here for a while. I just started riding last year and I am looking for a road bike to compliment my cross bike. The bike below has been on craigslist for a month originally was $875. Thoughts?

If it fits you, it seems a reasonable deal. Serottas get high marks around here. Dura Ace too.

+1, a lugged Serotta with Dur-ace for $750 is a good deal. You should be in the 6' range to ride it.

I think the top one is for a lamp. The bottom one is for the wheel carriers.

I see two things that bother me, one could be a show stopper. At least the drive side screw for adjusting the wheel position is missing. If it is broken off in the frame it is very difficult, if not impossible to repair.

It looks very dirty to me, especially the cassette and chain. IF the chain was left unchanged for too long and has stretched it could mean you need not just a new chain but a cassette too.

Also the bike being dirty means the first thing you need to do is strip all the parts off, clean them and the frame and regrease the bearing and reassemble.

I think maybe a $100 less might make this more appealing if that dropout adjuster is just missing.

The Raleigh 753 seems over-priced by a lot. You can get a new, custom-sized 853 frame from Mercian or Bob Jackson for less. It's priced for Raleigh and old bike fetishists, IMO ... I assume the folks here are riders or flippers.

Also, if you want to go beyond 7 cogs, IIRC 75s was not meant to be cold-set. Mercian and JRJ will be happy to space your rear triangle according to your wishes.

I'm surprised this hasn't already been scooped up, 1970s RRB custom. It needs a bit of work, and has an eclectice mix of (good quality) parts. Even with a "small dent in the top tube," this seems like a good price.

It's on the high end, and it's no bargain, but it wouldn't shock me if there was a buyer. These often go high.

I'm assuming it's original paint.

Edit - opened page. Seems high to me, but obviously more than one person thought otherwise.

Hand Made Albuch Kotter 56.5cm Touring/Utility Road Bicycle - $599 hide this posting


condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Albuch Kotter
size / dimensions: 56.5cm
more ads by this user

Albuch Kotter 56.5cm Touring/Utility Road Bicycle
Made in Böhmenkirch, Germany
A-PRO C-5 chromoly steel
Bigger, better pics here!: https://imgur.com/a/SAyzg

Top Tube: 57.5cm C-C
Seat Tube: 56.5cm C-T

XTR 9sp rear derailer, Shimano V-brakes, Ultegra BS-50 bar end shifter (friction only).
Deore LX FC-M570 crankset, single Salsa 36T chainring, chromoly fork, SRAM 11-34T cassette
Nearly new cables and housing, SRAM chain, Panaracer 28c tires, Koolstop pads,
and Lizardskin 3.2 bar tape (<100 miles).
Ultegra/Mavic wheelset, Nitto stem, Origin8 zero setback seatpost, SKS fenders
Saddle and pedals are NOT included.

This bike is awesome, just too big for me. Frame was hand made by Albuch Kotter in Germany. Tubing is made by A-PRO, chromoly. I *think* the frame is fully chromed, but don't hold me to that. The chainstay definitely is. Dual eyelets on rear dropouts for rack and fenders. I built this bike as a beefy commuter/ultilitarian bike. 1x9sp drivetrain with bashguard. Shifter is friction only. V-brakes for easy maintenance/adjustment. I also did some quirky things, because why not; brakes are "moto'd" aka left hand is rear, right hand is front. Levers are the Tektro long pull drop bar levers. Stem is a "dirt drop" style with the positive angle, which makes the riding position comfortable (no saddle to bar drop), but the steering is heavy.

Got some wear and tear/paint scrapes/scratches/etc., but fully functional, mechanic owned and maintained. No cracks or dents, frame is straight, wheels are true. Nearly new(<100mi) cables/housing, bar tape, chain, tires, brake pads, seatpost, stem. Saddle and pedals are NOT included.

Nope. That is the awesome seat cover playing tricks on your eyes.

In all honesty that looks bent. The other picture looking at the seatstay from the side you can see a change in light reflection and a dent consistent with the bent portion.

PERFECT Steel Fuji Touring Bike, Shimano, Mavic, ALL NEW!, 58cm XL - $550 (Cambridge/ Somerville/ Medford)







© craigslist - Map data © OpenStreetMap
Mass Ave at White St
(google map)

condition: like new
make / manufacturer: Fuji
model name / number: Touring 4130 Series
size / dimensions: 58cm, XL

Looking for the most reliable long-mile bike you can find? Looking for a comfortable, fast, and easy to hand bike thats versatile and functional? Planning a bike tour with your crew? How about commuting through the fall and beyond? Need a bike that doesn't need you to be fixing it all the time? Finally, are you seeking a true, no-joke touring bike that is more serious than you are about crushing road, dirt, grass, and gravel?

Take a look at this Fuji Touring bike, in LIKE NEW condition, with an entirely new build! Already equipped with a rear rack, this bike is ready for anything from serious commuting to light/ heavy duty touring!

DURABLE, RELIABLE, PRACTICAL, VERSATILE. This is a bike you will keep and ride for long expeditions and for years to come.

___________________________________________

Size 58cm, XL. Fits a rider between 5'11-6'-2". Very Important! I will help with a basic bike fitting where we will set up your saddle height and setback, as well reach and drop of the bars.

___________________________________________

If you are planning to take a tour OR commit to commuting long-term on a brand new rig, consider saving a BUNCH of money for the things that you will really need, like nicer lights, better waterproof panniers, wicking layers, more serious rain gear, etc. Considering the fact that true touring bikes have not taken a leap in evolution*, purchasing this bike is a great way to get the same sort of geometry, material quality, reliability, serviceability, and general industry compatibility at a fraction of the cost of 2017/18 Surly or Trek or Salsa. Get out there on a budget!
(*granted, disc brakes have benefited touring bikes in the last decade, but the fact is that rim brake pads/ service are the most ubiquitous and standard part/ services in any shop, in all cities, on your tour, in bum-**** middle of nowhere, and in the places where you actually want to find yourself on your bike...)

This bike also weighs 3lbs LESS than the equivalent sized Surly Long Haul Trucker, and 2lbs LESS than the same Trek 520, the current year most popular touring bikes, retailing +/- $1400.

Made of a fine 4130 Cro-moly steel tubeset, this bike exemplifies the qualities one needs in true touring or randonneur bike. Strength, smoothness, resilience, compliance, and a material you can keep for years if you treat it right. If you're looking at aluminum bikes for the longer rides, especially with gear, you're barking up the wrong tree. Test ride steel bikes instead! Lastly and this frameset lived in dry storage for the last 20 years, and is almost unridden, showroom shape.

___________________________________________

Specs:

-Fuji Touring Series 4130 Cromoly frame/ fork, early- mid 90's in UNRIDDEN condition.
Eyelets and mounts for both racks and fenders, front a and rear. 130mm rear spacing with semi-horizontal dropouts, set-screws. Frame even sports two replacement spokes, pre-cut and supplied for the current wheelset!

-NEW Shimano RSX drivetrain with Shimano bar-end shifters (ALL NOS!) 3x7s-- perhaps the most reliable drivetrain ever made... and BRAND NEW Jagwire CABLES/ HOUSING, treated with Teflon for a long and smooth!
-NEW Specialized (by Sugino) triple crankset, 175mm, BRAND NEW Chainrings! 28, 42, 52t, full-sized, super wide range.
-BRAND NEW/ never ridden Shimano nickel-plated cassette, 11-32t.
-BRAND NEW/ never ridden Sram PC-850 nickel-plated chain.

-HANDMADE wheelset, Mavic double-wall rims laced to Shimano 105 hubs. All spokes are the same length-- drive/ non-drive, front and rear! That makes having backups super easy, and this bike comes with 2 pre-measured extras, loaded, ready to go on the non-drive chain stay!

-NEW SunRace brake levers, Like-New Shimano cantilever touring brakes with BRAND NEW Kool-Stop all-condition (salmon) brake pads and BRAND NEW Shimano Dura-Ace cable and housing!

-BRAND NEW/ never ridden Bontrager All-Weather AW1 Hard Case tires, 700x32c! Fast rolling and super tough with long service life.

-1" Japanese (Sugino) threaded headset w/ 1 1/8" treadless adaptor, EASY stem swaps and super wide range of vertical adjustment, best of both worlds. Just overhauled.

-BRAND NEW Velo Orange alloy drop-bars, 26.0mm diameter, 44cm wide, short/ shallow reach/ drop. Oh, and BRAND NEW synthetic cork tape, professionally wrapped.

-Saddle: I have many options, pick one! Selle Italia Flite Gel, Terry Men's Gellismo Titanium, Specialized Dolce 155 Gel, (currently seen with a classic) Avocet Flex Touring saddle, see images, I will install for test rides...

-BRAND NEW/ never used Bontrager Delux rear rack! Ready to roll with almost any type of pannier or bag or truck system, this is one of the best rear racks on the market.

-Pedals: Options including Shimano SPD clipless pedals, standard aluminum flats, or toe-clip cages, your choice. One pair included with bike, I have new cleats in package for the SPD, all you need is shoes (and a little experience).

-I have a bunch of pairs of matching bottle cages you can choose from, for FREE if you want...

-I have NEW Planet Bike Hardcore fenders ready to roll for this thing, let me know if you want those and for an extra $40 they're yours! Thats retail, the deal here is that I'll professionally INSTALL them (trust me, that's worth your money, regardless if you're an "engineer" or have a friend who "works on their' own bikes").

___________________________________________

I ride a size 54cm. I have no use for this thing however nice it is, and believe me, if it were my size I'd be a keeper. I have lots of project bikes, and enough personal bikes than I really know what to do with. This bike happens to be one of the nicer project in the works, and its about time to let it run wild out there. As a professional mechanic, I can assure you that this bike is in perfect working order, and seeing as all the wearable parts are BRAND NEW with ZERO miles, this bike is singing.

The bike will remain unridden in solid mechanical shape through any ridding and until sold. This bike is wonderful and needs adventure and a new home.

Let me know if you have any questions about the frame or about the build.

Take a test ride around Porter or Magoun Square after I take a look at your fit and you'll be throughly impress. Please reference the bike specifically in your response, this is not the only bike I'm releasing.

Thanks for looking!
