It's not at all uncommon to sell a road bike with "test ride" pedals, since the buyer may opt for pedals to match her/his shoe/cleat preference. Ugly bike, anyway.

Ross My Hood, PDX

Saw this at Cornell Goodwill. Older model with roller cam brakes. $50 price tag. Saddle as big as Texas.

^^^^ And those yummy thumbies, and all that chrome, and the oh-so-'80s Sugino/Sakae chainring design -- at that price it should be GONE.

It is around 9Kgs in total(with tires). It has an excellent material and especially if you are willing to put some work in this bike, you can make miracles out of it. Or later if you decide that you are not interested in using this bike, you can just sell the pieces separately and I am sure sure can make more money out of it. Currently I am using this bike as a fixie, just because I was too lazy to put the rest of the parts. But it is very possible to turn this bike into a regular speed bike.

So you don't find that stem/hbar combo overly much for that frame? Maybe I'm the only one who remembers the early Trek carbon frames being.....not great.

I bet the farm that is not a real Colnago bar/stem, but a Chinese knockoff...

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:

Please buy it before I do!

1987 Schwinn High Sierra, 19" frame, $140 @ Portland OR area, CraigsList


here is a nice vintage 87 schwinn high sierra ATB / MTB in lemon yellow, seat tube measures 19". in good shape, has misc. scratches and scrapes but pretty normal wear for its age. has almost all its original equipment, shimano deore shifting components, suntour roll cam brakes, shimano levers all work perfectly. It did have the odd ball bio-pace chainrings that are egg shaped so i switched them out with reg. chainrings. all chromoly frame and lots of mounts for fenders, racks etc. The bike has been serviced and regreased and is ready to roll. come by for a test ride. If the ad is up, it is still Available.

^^^^^ 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.
