Regardless that’s a pretty cool bike. Note sure I would want to hammer trails with that generation carbon fiber but would make a good utility bike. Kinda surprised it has LX; woulda thought they’d hang higher level on a avant- garde carbon fiber mtb.

Probably to keep the price down. I thought the same on their Team Titanium that spec'd with 105.

Spotted these on the big auction site for $20 each, stainless steel copies of the TA Ref 213 handlebar bottle cages. I grabbed the last one from a previous listing in December for $5 cheaper, looks pretty good though the supplied mounting rings are pretty useless for my purposes. But I haven't seen many of these in circulation and they're still cheaper than even pretty beat up real ones seem to go for.

It's coolness is among the reasons I posted it . I may not consider it (personally) C&V, but it is an interesting bicycle? My 1995 Trek 2120 is of similar construction, and it's my daily rider and beater bike. I don't consider it C&V. I had my trepidation at first, but it is a stiff and resilient rider: solid. Unfortunately the aluminum forks and stays seem to be transmitting too much road noise. (I will be switching over to my '72 Falcon San Remo to see if my joint issues might be ameliorated. The Falcon has 531DB stickers, but a 26.4 Zeus seatpost, which leads me to want to assume that the seat tube is plain gauge 531, to stiffen it, as it's 24" ctt.)

I wouldn't fret over the carbon fiber tubes failing too much as I've read they were significantly overbuilt, but the "lugging" might be of concern? I inspect the joints of my 2120 regularly.

If the bike was nearer to me, I'd take a look at it and document, as I haven't seen such before from Miyata. It would need to be a couple of centimeters taller to really arouse my acquiring interest. The price is certainly right?

Who knows what it is...pump pegs, no hanger, possibly drewed, chrome's gone. IMO the paint-resto is the value of the frame, maybe half of asking.

My '95 Giant CFM-2 carbon tube MTB was also an LX bike. Nice enough ride but if I keep it I'd put a rigid fork on it for the riding I do.

Its a couple of hours from me and looks my size. I might drop the seller a line and see if he’s willing to meet in Richmond. I have a lugged carbon cross bike (ALAN), about 10-15 yrs newer than this one that I really like.

Total money pit, but it's only the second one I've seen on southern California's Craigslist in the past 5 years so I thought I'd post it. It also has an ideale saddle.

Puch Bergmeister.

​​​​​​P.S. I still am having trouble posting images sometimes...it shows 99% uploaded and then stalls. So frustrating.

Happens to me pretty frequently, even with just one image. Fortunately, most of the time, I'm just referencing a URL out on the web, so I can just insert the IMG tags manually and paste in the image URL.

Don't know what a fair price is for this thing, but I have the Columbus tubed version in the 950 and it's such a great rider. These are really sharp looking frames too.
I'm tempted to buy it, even though I have the 950. It's probably a sickness.
