You should go by their store and use their blue book guide as a bargaining tool.

I haven't checked, but I'm guessing it's gone. That was a lightening-deal.. It wasn't my size(or smaller) or I'd have to have given it some brief-thought. I really don't need it, but..pretty good deal.. It could be converted to (triple) Poprad without too much work or cost.

i probably just would have resold it at the swap- but trying to grab a few last minute deals just to have more stuff to everyone's viewing and buying pleasure. on the other hand, its was my size and pretty dang sweet. I would just leave as is- great city bike.

Thread is definitely in need of a refresh.

Deleted posts cause problems with indexing, which leads to mispagination (is that a word?). It's much worse on an iOS device than Firefox for me.

As the owner of a 64cm example from a couple years newer ('88/89), this is a "budget" in price only because the ride and handling of these is absolutely sublime--truly magic! People can have their Gran Criteriums and 3Vs, very good bikes in their own right. But man, these Nuova Stradas are not to be discounted. At all!

Did you post this in the Facilitators Thread yet? I did that for a Schwinn Prologue and it was 1000% worth it. Thankfully, I got to return the favor to another BF member shortly thereafter.

Congrats!

For shipping, have you researched any bike shops near Cocoa?

This looks like quite a deal:

Club Fuji Bike - $75



Lousy photos, as these deals often are. Someone might want to jump on this. I would, but I'm out of room and budget right now.

I found Village Cycle Shoppe but I don't know anything about them. I was hoping someone from BF is in the area that would know where to go. I haven't asked, but I think the seller might be willing to drop the bike off there. If I can't find a facilitator, then that's my plan B.

The shop looks good. Might suggest to contact them, inquire the cost to breakdown and carton the bike (reusing new bike packaging). Then if the seller willing, have them bring it to the bike shop. Use Bike Flights and have it shipped to your local bike shop. Routine B2B.

Guessing the overall cost will be half what the bike was. Still an awesome score.

Not much to go by but this appears to be a decent condition and early Zunow. Zero feedback seller in Houston. Starting at $400
