Thanks, but to call that frame a 20 inch flies in the face of everything I thought I knew about frame sizing?

Small Univega (50cm) with Cycle Art paint job, $75

No drive side photos, and I don’t know the model, but $75 for a Cycle Art painted bike that looks to be in decent condition, I think it is worth the gamble. At 50cm it’s far too small for me, and located
in Irvine, CA, so too far for me to facilitate. It’s also been on FB Marketplace for over a week, so they may be willing to deal

It looks like an Exage group. That repaint cost more than the Univega did

The frame looks like a '89 Krono time trial bike that came with a 105 group and cool Ambrosio disc rear wheel.

I know I've seen these in a catalog, but for some reason I'm not finding it this morning.

Thank Bianchigirl, that’s exactly what I was thinking! Why dump that kind of $$$ into repainting a low-end Univega? At least the price is on point

On the other hand, why screw up the paint job on a high end bike, when a middle of the road (pricewise) bike is so much less money?

May be a Specialissima, Superlight, Superstrada or Ultraleggera? All are very high-end bikes, Univega didn't just produce pedestrian garbage. Specialissima looks amazing in pearl white.

Would you paint a top o the lone Univega and put a Exage Sport group on it?

I live in the wrong area for bargains...

$100 for that Specialized is a steal. The non-wheel tri-color stuff alone is worth probably $120 if it is in great condition.

$100 for this? I wish I hadn't just....well I wish I had the money and room for this. Looks bigger than 56 though

I like the touch of compost. May have set out side a bit assuming by the mud line on tires. Not good with a fluted seatpost.

No, but the owner who had it painted may've removed what was on it before selling it to this person. Or this person may've picked it to swap parts before selling off. You never know!

(meanwhile, I'm cursing the lack of drive side pic!!)

This seems like a very reasonable price for this Pinarello, given the never-ridden appearance. No drive side shot.
