Stiff harsh ride IMHO. I actually bought one in the ADK for $15 in 2014. BB cups were tough, but time and PB Blaster prevailed.

Nice Package!

Lots of cycling gear - $75 (Raleigh





"Fuji time trial
cycle ops trainer w / block
Cat eye heart rate monitor
Size 12 cycling shoes with lock in pedals.

Has been sitting for a while. I could not get the rear tire to seal and take air. Possibly it will need new tire
Cycle computer will need batteries.

First $75 takes all."

You're not missing anything...the auction had a few things working against it:

Large size. Larger bikes usually go lower in auction format.
Thanksgiving/holiday auction end.
No photos...video not very good
High shipping

Perfect storm. Congrats!

Thank you, Aaron. I was beginning to get worried. Now storage is getting to be an issue. I gotta sell some bikes.

Thank you guys. This is the second time that I put in a low bid and actually won. First one was the Merckx Professional from July that I also mentioned in this forum. That one was $500 shipped.

Maybe I can get the seller of this Colnago to ship via BikeFlights. That shipping quote in the auction is excessive.

The unfortunate part is that I also picked up two other bikes locally yesterday.

If I hadn't acquired a PX-10 and a Bottecchia Professional in the last month I might have been in on the bid - but with those I'm already treading into 'crazy cat lady' territory on bikes so you were in the clear from my end.

I'm treading in that territory too right now. Maybe we'd run into each other.

Note, I'm worse than most here...but I'd try to narrow your focus. Maybe only bikes pre-1975, or only one of these 10 brands..

Try to limit things where you only keep the tippy top and you sell the good deals you aren't that in love with.

I'm happy to give advice, but what you're talking about is personal. What do you most like? What most moves you? I like rarer, weirder stuff that's top quality.

An Even Less Expensive Ironman?

Bicycles (road) - $50





"One Centurion Iron Man road bicycle (circa 2010)

One Motobecane road bicycle (circa 1980)

$50 for each, good condition; see photos"

https://richmond.craigslist.org/bik/...402067098.html

(Ugh. Were they my size, I'd see about shipping or long road tripping. If they were nearer, I'd be all over them already. Grrr. Moto appears to be a Super Mirage.)

For those of you who may not know, this is a nice little bike. I built and sold a bunch of these in the '80s, and may have done so with this one. Has the Shimano Front Freewheel System (FFS) with Positron that is easy and user-friendly for new riders and the best steel rims ever on a bike; straight and tough with good chrome. This one does not have the original saddle. I built one of these with a baby seat on it and gave it to my sister when her kid was born.

It is called a tadpole, I think. @rhm had one for a while. I rode his once, maybe all of 100 feet. It was squirrelly as hell.
