Shorter humans raced (I mean, aerodynamic advantage, anyone???) and tall guys were left to....tour?
To be honest I am jelly of all these beautiful bikes that are too big. Sucks...

All good though. I think it is God telling me I need to stop buying bikes LOL.

They all seem taller to me too, though I am 4-5" shorter than you lol...
And not only are nicer 19" bikes harder to find, they are often more expensive than the larger bikes

Vintage Fuji Delray Road bike Bicycle 20" 50cm 12spd - $100 (Marshfield)


condition: like new
make / manufacturer: Fuji
model name / number: delRey
size / dimensions: 20
Vintage Fuji delRay
20" frame 50cm (32" standover height)
12 speed
Drop tube shifters (lightweight simple )
27 1 1 /4 quick release wheels
aero brake levers
avocet touring saddle
Suntour sugino shifters
adjustable horizontal rear drop outs

Nice looker for sure. It really appears to be a 54cm frame as is evident by the picture showing it being measured incorrectly for height Also, the dropouts are NOT adjustable, but only one of those lock-in spacers per the picture. Still the seller presents a ton of nice pictures and the price is reasonable for the condition.

Dunno. Not familiar with Motobecane facilities but I once rode up to Peugeot's factory in Valentigny and asked for a tour, which they graciously provided.

Big bikes also have the added benefit of looking positively regal when done right. They can also look massively awkward when not done right. It's a fine line.

I second your second paragraph. My small 500 sq. ft. apartment is home to just over half a dozen steeds, with more framesets and components. I do not need more space--I am truly rich and more than blessed to have even one bike that I really like and get to use! Some days it hits me really hard--every bike I have is really good in some or many ways. All ringers, no 'slackers' or low end bikes. How did I get here from a gifted '85 Schwinn World Sport? I am very thankful.

I would guess that the majority of male riders ride frames that are 54-58cm. While probably having the most frames in this size, they also seem to be the most in demand as reflected by prices.

Anyone looking for a Trek?



https://merced.craigslist.org/bik/d/...308727193.html

$75. Been sitting there unsold for quite a while. I thought the market for 80's Trek road bikes was a little hotter than this.

I'm gonna withhold judgment on the aluminum Lemonds until I ride one, but after owning and riding a Cannondale for the past 30 years, I'm not a huge fan of the metal myself. They're supposed to be really fast light bikes, but part of me thinks they switched to aluminum on some models mainly as a cost-saving measure. And since they're out of business now, it apparently didn't work.

Would love to hear Greg's unvarnished opinion on aluminum now that he no longer has a dog in this fight, but I doubt we'll ever hear it.

Love the 853 Lemonds though, one of those will be my next bike.

If anyone likes (small) Sekais there is one on DC CL for $20. Truly hideous saddle, but that can be replaced, right?
This poor bike needs some TLC but it looks like it is actually somewhat decent. Those pedals alone have to be worth somewhere near $20.

Price certainly reflects condition but if you're looking for one of these, you won't find one in better shape. And for the rest of us, it's nice eye candy

I have a 1988 Davis Phinney-designed Criterium model. Sprints well, but the bike only climbs as well as I do (not that good). They were about the lightest production bikes of the era, so they probably out-climbed most steel bikes of the day.

I like mine, but I know better than to attempt any long rides on it.

Yeah, there's $20 in there for someone.

Could be a good starter bike if it fits!

I have one of those and I never thought of it as a road racing build.

Edit: "This bike is located in East Casper, Wyoming, 300 miles South of Denver, CO". I guess I don't know my geography like I thought I did.
