Nice looking frame under all that flaking chromovelato (is there any other kind of chromovelato?). But should be priced under $200 IMO.

https://boston.craigslist.org/bmw/bo...039928209.html

58cm. Bimmezeta Cronostar road racing bicycle frame - $325 (Waltham, MA.





I have for sale a 58cm Biemmezeta Cronostar racing bicycle frame. The frame measures 58cm c-c at the seat tube (59cm c-t) and a top tube of 57+cm c-c (measurements are made from the intersections of the centerlines of the tubes).
The frame is constructed of Columbus SL steel alloy tubing. It is fully chromed with a transparent reddish orange coating over most of the frame. The coating is in fair to poor condition, with a fair amount having flaked off and more ready to do so. The decals also need a bit to be desired. The aero style seatstays, chainstays, top mount shifters, internally routed cables, and would be aero sloping fork crown and blades make for an attractive frameset.
With steep head tube and seat tube angles, chainstays that measure 15 1/4" to 15 1/2" (38.7cm to 39.4cm), and an indented seat tube giving a short wheelbase of 37 3/4" (96cm), this frame is well suited to short, tight courses of criterium racing. As seen in the specs (included) it should have a fork with 1 5/8" or 41.275mm rake. Typical fork rakes are 43mm and 40mm, and I would favor a 40mm rake.
All in all I consider this to be an excellent candidate to restore (they're making awesome transparent powder coat these days) or race it as-is. Expect the handling of this frame to be quick and responsive, climbing and sprinting well. Overall, a great example of the ride a steel frame gives.
STEEL IS REAL

$325.00

I am a big fan of BMZ frames and that bike is my size. Without a fork, that price seems very aggressive though. I would like to get one of those aero frames. Too bad it didn't have the original fork.

There has been a Ciocc in Massachusetts or New Hampshire for about 2 years now at the same local pickup only price of $450. If I were closer, I would have been on that, but it's interesting that the price is still the same as when I first saw it.

It's likely a 'convince me to sell' price. I'm sure we all have bikes we like too much to sell, except at the right price you'd be a fool not to accept.

This is where a clever seller would hold the bike for a month, take completely new pics, and write a completely new description and terms. I think that most people who dont sell their bikes are lazy. If one method does not work, try something else. I consider Craigslist and eBay like fishing. If I insist on using one type of fly, and never catch any fish, and I'm not willing to tie on a different fly, then I can't blame the fish.

Ha! I have a friend with 100+ bikes. He has had the same few for sale on Craigslist on and off for years at the same price, same pics. I think he just want's to be able to tell his wife he's trying.

And an equally-mint but slightly smaller (58?) same colored ST400 for $350 BIN in Apple, WI @ https://www.ebay.com/itm/124005766743

Francophile, I was in the shop that has that taller bike for sale today. Reputable guys and good mechanics. That one will be a safe buy for someone. Smiles, MH

This may be quite possibly the strangest bike Iíve ever seen. Popeye brakes, the strange downtube and seat tube thicknesses. The seat jammed absurdly far forward, the dinner plate sized front reflector, the wild rear spoke pattern, and of course the foam grips. Anyone have any idea what the heck this beauty is?

Can be yours for only $30!

Just looked it up and it looks like youíre right! Alas I have too many bikes (sure no one else around here has that problem). Might just have to remember this as the one that got away...

Stranger yet is the ladies' mixte version. Both are best kept some considerable distance from you so as to prevent contamination (of you).

^^^^^^^ Of course, Roger has one in the museum ... er... used showroom. https://budgetbicyclectr.com/huffy-a...d-bicycle.html . It's the price of the above CL-listed one, SQUARED.

OMG - found this in the "Details" section of the Budget Bike listing:
Features Shimano Adamas AX components this aerodynamic group set was designed to reduce the all around aerodynamic friction of your bike (although not quite as effectively as their nicer Dura-Ace and 600 AX groups).
Same author once reviewed Pabst Blue Ribbon, comparing it to New Glarus Spotted Cow.....

An awfully nice Le Tour on Chicago CL. Disclaimer: While I've no interest in this bike, I met the seller (Mike, I believe) on one of iab 's spring rides two or three years ago.

From the details "...and could use some minor tuning to the gears and such to get it running top notch again" as a former late '70s to early '80s bike mechanic, I think the word "again" is hilarious!
