$600 including the Colnago panto stem. 53 cm. Great price and if repainted, it's a good one. Nice price for a grail bike for someone.

Obviously a seller who doesn't care. No one is going to pedal away as its shown. Might be a great opp for additional discount. 'Bike no worky'

It's been lingering on ebay too, but local pickup only and zero feedback seller. The zip tie on the down tube gives me pause.

Tempting. In my area too.

53cm c-c. I usually ride a 56 (5'11") and think that is a c-t 56? Can't figure out if this would fit or not

After your comment, I now notice two zip ties. What might they be for?

Odometer wire? Wasn't there a bike computer thing that read a magnet on the crank? Maybe to measure watts?
I've bought bikes with old computers and wires held on bybzip ties, I'd bet something like that.

Yup, it's for a cadence sensor. If you look at the pictures you can see a magnet on the inner side of the left crank and the sensor on the left chainstay.

For those of us tall guys that also want a literal charity project: a team Saeco Cannondale frame with more graphics and perhaps a race entry decal/sticker on the down tube. 66cm so it's wonderfully tall. So here's the down side: This thing is damaged in multiple ways. BB threads don't look good (look at that cup!), but I don't know what's truly going on with it. A bottle cage riv-nut (or whatever they're called) is missing. The worst of all is the doubly cracked NDS seat stay below the rear brake bridge. Oh, and the replaceable RD hanger is missing, but they made a bunch of those. Any lesser frame is likely a complete write-off if you're in it for any monetary recuperation. But if, like I've read one BF member here (forget who!), you're looking for one of these to keep, and you're in for a Lazarus-level resurrection effort, then this is your frame. These would have had carbon forks, and perhaps finding an original one is a forgone conclusion, but a more modern replacement could be installed in its place.

60 cm Gios Deda steel

I have a Gios Compact, cousin to this frame and it’s very nice. I have a feeling this will be a single bid auction.

Sorry if posted before, but here's a Pinarello Veneto in San Antonio: https://sanantonio.craigslist.org/bi...815531112.html

I've heard the seller won't go under $600. (Although they bought it for $29, so don't let that stop you.)
