I thought the monocoque carbon Treks were good, and the glued frames were the not-so-great ones.

Anyway, that bike would be a good candidate for a GCN-style superbike makeover...

Good call on the knock-off. Also good call on the glued frames being blech. At a quick glance that bike looked older than '92 and I didn't notice the OCLV.

It's a little-known made-up fact that Fausto Copi's favorite bike was a Ross.

Just ran into this minty 60's Super Sport on Minneapolis craigslist for $125.
https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/a...888670905.html


I say 60s because I know they switched to 3-piece cranks in 72, and this one's rear derailleur is on a claw hanger... I think I've seen a couple with the one-piece crank and forged rear dropouts, but wouldn't swear to it.

Looks 70s to me. The Super Sport of the 70s always had stamped dropouts with a claw and always had 1-piece cranks with an unthreaded American bottom bracket shell. The next level up Sports Tourer got forged Huret dropouts and European threaded bottom bracket shell with 3-piece Nervar or TA cranks.

I believe there were Super Sport models in the 60s with forged dropouts with integrated hanger, so you might have the timing backwards.

1986 Raleigh Alyeska - $220 Portland, OR

Mismatched wheelset (24 spoke on the front?!), but otherwise a sweet deal on what appears to be a 1986 model:

^^^^^ Hint to seller - yes, it's a "High" Sierra, and yes, it's a tall frame, but that doesn't mean you shoot EVERY photo vertically. Feels like you're looking through a slatted fence.

That yellow one with the roller cams is sweeeeet. But why oh why did they insist on those riser handlebars? Seen 'em on every HS I've come across. So many factors point the cool/dork needle toward cool -- color-keyed stem, nice thumbies, cool color options, and of course the roller-cams. Then the handlebar moves the needle back toward dork. First thing that came off mine.

tall people problem

The owner, if tall like me, would have to kneel to take a regular picture.

Not the best-priced Tempo I've seen, and the pics and text are.... er.... spartan. But given there's another Tempo a bit further down the page going for three times more, this one probably won't last.

It was the orientation I was referring to, not the angle. But cf. the angle, one can shoot from waist or chest level.

Gorgeous vintage road bike (modern rebuild) - $169


I had this beautiful vintage frame (from the '80s) custom built into a modern road bike (with all new parts) in 2015. I've been lovingly riding it around Boston while I've lived here but sadly can't take it with me on this next move. I've since added a rear wheel rack for groceries and such.

Super fresh white and purple coloring!

I'm not too sure about the specific size stuff, but I'm 5'11" and the bike fits me perfectly. It could probably work for someone a few inches shorter or taller.
