This seems like an interesting bike. If it's seriously got dura-ace components, I think it's worth the $130 asking price.

It's a 1982, in either 25" or 27". I have one and it rides nicely. $200 might be a bit high in this condition but if it's your size and you're looking for a vintage touring bike it would be a good catch.

I did email the guy. I think it's my size but I'll test ride it to make sure. If it's still available, I'm gonna get it.

At the very least it'll make a good commuter bike.

Thinking of offering $300 for this one...it's not my size, but it could be a decent part-out. If there's anyone it would fit, I'd be willing to facilitate.

Very Tall Lotus Road Bike - $275 (Arlington)

Date: 2010-05-07, 7:46PM EDT
Reply to: sale-yzamt-1729930572@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?]

Very Clean and perfectly tuned 27" Lotus Excelle Sport 12 speed. This bike is a 27" frame. Good for folks AT LEAST 6' 3" tall. Alloy wheels & components, light weight tripple butted Chome Moly frame (reynolds 4130 tubing). Shimano Tourney Crank set, & Shimano 600 deraileurs. Handle bar end shifters, nice foam handlebar grips, Selle San Marco Seat. Very clean, always stored in-doors and runs perfectly. Nice Rear alloy bike rack. Top tube is relatively short for frame height. As such, this is a great bike for folks with lower back pain/iseues. More pics availible. Bike measures 37.5" off ground so this is truly a basketball players bike (if you don't wear at least 36" inseem pants, this bike is too tall for you). Horizontal drop-outs with adjustable stops so bike could also be used for a great fixed/singlespeed conversion.

Schwinn Mixte... I didn't know they made 'em.
Schwinn LeTour VG/EX Condition - $85 (SW Durham)

This is a nice, large size (22" seat-tube) bike in excellent condition. I'm 6' and can ride this bike comfortably.
The step-through design is great for a taller woman or anyone who doesn't want to hassle with a too-tall top tube.
There is no rust on this bike, always kept in doors. Not ridden much in the past few years. It would be hard to find a better example.
Great Mother's Day gift!! Thanks for looking.

Robbie, I had a LeTour mixte IV last year (1979 vintage). That one you posted is a pretty good deal. Hard to find mixtes in larger sizes. Mine below was a 19 inch.

With your college town market, a mixte should sell well.

Maybe it's personal preference but I was somewhat surprised to see a Continental in the "looking for one of these" threads.

Not trying to start an argument with any Continental owners, just trying to explain my apparently cryptic post.
