Has anybody here checked out this bike yet? I wonder why it still has not sold.
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.)

What would be a bad reason for zip tie on a frame tube?

The most likely reason is wires from a computer with a cadence sensor like a CatEye Micro.

Does anyone really think a small zip tie on a frame is a sign of frame damage?

That's what I meant. BUT, you can fill a big hole with what I don't know. I, like may others here, buy used bikes. If there's a good reason to be suspect of zip ties around the frame, I'm always interested in learning.

1900 Pierce Arrow $1650

https://buffalo.craigslist.org/bik/d...817060364.html
Don't own it and wouldn't have a place to safely store it if I did and not sure I'd have a bike not to rid, but.....

Per ad: "Since photos were taken wheels were taken off bike and hub-bearings cleaned and greased and a broken spoke replaced on rear wheel, not put back on yet because thinking of getting new tires. Cranks and fork taken off in preparation to clean and grease their bearings. Bike can be put back together as-is in 30 minutes, it is a very simple bicycle.
Probably best for static display, but new tires are available and it could be ridden in a limited way for shows or up and down your street a bit. Original paint and finish, from an old local estate. A fixed-gear bike with no coaster-hub and no brakes, as simple as you can get. Price is $1650 firm."
Ps in 1899 these were $50 new which was lot of money back then, roughly what seller is asking now
