My wife saw that ^^^^^^ 360 earlier today. Dang, if it were my size (or hers), it would be in our living room right now. One of my best buddies is 6'4", a pretty avid cyclist, but has ZERO C&V leanings. Every bike he's had, he's bought brand new, marginally serviced only as things wear out, and eventually ridden into the ground. This bike would bore him to death.

classic touring bike - $200 (heron village)


I bought this bike from Somervelo a couple years ago. It took me from Boston to Montreal 2 summers ago without any issue. It has capacity for front and back racks, fenders and 3 water bottle cages. At this point it is stripped down and perfect for riding around the city without the extra weight of racks, etc. I've never crashed it. It's been kept inside. It does have some superficial rust. What I like about it is that it has a traditional frame, very simple and inexpensive to fix and classic looking. It also has great brakes and shifters that work well when fully loaded or riding around town in inclement weather.

I'm selling it because I'm not planning any long trips and have too many bikes. I'm 5'5" and it fits me well. The listed size is my best estimate based on what I usually ride. Let me know if you're interested or have any questions.

VINTAGE TREK 500 BICYCLE - $90 (MILTON)

VINTAGE TREK 500 BICYCLE. I don't know much about this bike, but it's extremely lightweight. In a garage for years, so needs some cleaning. Otherwise in very nice condition, with a few marks on the paint. Charcoal gray. The down-tube from the seat to the pedal crank measures roughly 24-25 inches. Matrix Strada wheels, which spin free and tires hold air fine. All components move freely. $90. Matt 617-828-2392

Handbuilt road bike - $1500 (Rehoboth, MA)







This is a 57cm handbuilt steel frame road racing bicycle. Frame builder is Custom A cycles from Providence RI. It is a lugged frame using Columbus Foco tubing (very light) and Richard Sachs lugs(see photos) The frame with wheels weighs just over 20 pounds. The components are a mix of Campy C-Record and Chorus. The geometry is classic road race: a beautiful balance between responsiveness and stability. The bike was occasionally raced for several years but never crashed. The frame was rust treated when it was first put together in 2004 and shows almost no rust now. The steerer tube is uncut to allow for max height adjustments. For those who are wondering about fit: I'm a little under 5'10" and weigh 155 with long arms and inseam . I'm stretched out with the 12.5 stem but it could go to 13 maybe a bit more without compromising the response. The recommended max weight probably shouldn't be more than 180-185 based on my conversations with the builder when we put it together. So the range could run 5'9 to 6' and up to 180 pounds. The bike is incredibly responsive and stable; I've changed jackets and vests more than a few times no hands as well as taken some sweeping downhills the same way. It almost steers itself. It is more of a climber's bike than a crit beast, and has that classic sweet steel feel. It has stayed in the attic for the past five years, so it really hasn't seen a great deal of wear and tear. I've tried to note some of the nicks in the photos. They have been touched up, but nothing has reached beyond the outer coat. Some additional specs:

Top tube: 57cm Seat tube:57 cm

Chainstay: 42cm Headset: Chorus

Crankset/BB: C-Record 53/39 172.5

Front derailleur: C-Record Rear Derailleur: Chorus 12-23

12.5 cm ITM stem

Wheelset: Cane Creek The rear has titanium spokes

The rest is a mix of aftermarket parts.

A lugged Schwinn with a tubular fork, front and rear derailleurs, upright handlebars, a Brooks saddle and what look to be Blumel fenders. It looks like it is from the '60's. Any ideas on what exactly this is? And was this made in Chicago? Was it imported?


I am scratching my head. I worked in a Schwinn dealership and never saw anything like this.

Anyone know more about this model?

Thanks Kactus. I never knew there was an Tourist Paramount.

I'm kind of, sort of interested in it, however it is a little small and the last thing that I need is one more bike!

Agree on the likelihood of the 1964 date. I contacted the seller and I am hoping to look at it. I am rationalizing that I will grow into it. As I get older, I will get shorter, therefore, this bike might be an Ok fit at some point.

Then, I need to sell at least one bike to make room. I have a Trek 1000, that has been lingering on Craigslist. That would help.

If the seller gets back to me, then I have to make a decision, if not, no worries but a few regrets. We'll see.
