Looks to me like the seatpost may have taken a toll on the seatube.

Definitely looks like straight seatposts jammed together like tent poles with a bit of duct tape for good measure...

Depends on your values. When I sold them the Pathfinder was about $180 new. Hi-ten frame, steel wheels and bars, etc. The alloy crank has steel rings and they are not easily replaceable should you wish to change the front gearing. Basic bike with a front QR and Asian quality control (those are positives). I'd apply my money elsewhere.

Stuck on Page 1736 - WTF!?

I am still getting notification of new posts on my email, but when I click on the link, it always sends me to the top of page 1736. I can see pages 1737 and 1738 on the list, but it won't let me go there.

Anybody else have this issue?

Black Lightning 'Dale VT CL 56cm

I know this is a favorite of some. Claims to be original components.

Pricey IMHO, especially at this time of year

I'd pay close to that for the BL, maybe $300-350 if it's as good looking in person as it is in the photos.

Well, that got me to page 1737, but it still shows a page 1738 that I can't get to. Still, since I'm answering your latest message, this must be where we are, right?

Yeah we're on 1737. I have 1738 showing too but from the past months it always shows one page up and I just stay on the present page.
You're on the right spot.

Me too. I paid $200 for one close to that condition but sans the $$$ Volare saddle and with fading on the stem. That one is a beaut!

Very small Reynolds 853 Lemond Zurich, not quite C&V, but it's steel and looks like a steal!

https://up.craigslist.org/bik/d/road...326080876.html

"A beautiful 1997 Lemond Zurich, 853 Reynolds Steel frame Road Bike. Equipped with Mavic Aksium Race wheelset, Full Shimano Tiagra groupset, and lightly used tires. This Reynolds 853 double butted .7/.45/.7 gauge tig-welded frame is famous for it's ride quality. The LeMond responds instantly and reliably to hard efforts. Not quite sure on weight, if I had to guess I'd say around 18 lbs, feels light. Frame is Made in the USA, Waterloo, WI. The mechanic who built this bike put great care into keeping the cable routing very clean, using high quality jagwire cable housing. This bike is a size small and could potentially fit a wide range of users from an adult woman or small man to younger kids. Pedals can be included for additional $20, shimano road pedals, spd style pedals, or flat pedals, your choice."

Judging by the stem and seatpost height, it looks as if the bike was too small for its previous owner.

Schwinn PDG Series Mountain bike, apparently in mint condition, $140. If James Dak rode an MTB, it would probably look something like this.

The Atala is in Italy and doesn't loom too special. The Ciocc is pretty mismatched, even has 2 different shifters, for $900+ I think the best deal of the lot of the Vitus Framed Bertoni.
