Front impact was so hard on this one, it also bent the bars and spun the levers around!

It's a little spendy for that bike. Despite its history, it's a little uncomfortable and heavy.

I sold one for $260 (listed @$280) recently. I picked it up for $175 on eBay, arrived with some issues, seller refunded a little. I refurb'd it, took it on a couple summer trips to take on short 10-30 mile rides. It's this one, actually: Post Your Bridgestones -- The Unofficial Bridgestone Thread

The longer wheelbase helps dampen the road nicely, but regardless what stem or seat config I tried, my back would jam up, ass or hands would go numb. It just wasn't that pleasant. It's absolutely gorgeous, one of my favorite Bridgestone paint schemes, ever. The geometry didn't seem to agree with my body.

YMMV, all I'd say is that pricetag is roughly double what it should be for a triathlon bike. If this had been the better-equipped mile112 "SE" model, supposedly the same model used in the Olympics, maybe $300-350 would be justifiable? Dunno.

I paid $50 for this one a few years ago. I never rode it because it was way too small.

Not following you on the RJ and Canned Soda.

Regarding the printer paper boxes: those are the perfect size to fit every part required on a bike minus wheels and bars. Each box you see there is labeled with a year/make/model (and color if pertinent) and all the parts to rebuild the bike. Frame is either off for prep, in process of correction, in queue on the wall, in the attic for deep storage, or trashed and off for recycle.

I do this because itís storage friendly and far easier for me to work on a frame disassembled, or on a box of parts individually, thus making everything a bit sized chunk. Sometimes I donít have all the parts I need so Iíll leave the box there and add to it as I collect the bits and pieces Iím missing, until everything is available. I usually have a rotation of 12-15ish boxes at any given time, for whatever itís worth.

Probably TMI, but a couple other BFíers whoíve been in the shop have seen it and adopted similar. Works exceptionally well for rotating large volume of bikes with limited space.

I've been looking for one, but I ride 50cm-54cm. All the ones turning up in my searches are way too tall for me.

If you watch a few of RJ's videos, eventually you encounter one where it's zoomed out enough to show some background of his workspace. There are always copious cases of canned soda stacked in one corner or another. Fella must be addicted to the stuff. It's a sort of signature, along with the "Hey viewers....".

AH! Now I re-read it online vs. mobile, I more clearly see : and :: used to make comparison. Where's the slap-forehead emoticon when you need it?!

Just in case there's someone out there who keeps saying "Too small again!" to all those 63cm frame bikes for sale.
70cm Bertin (1978) -- complete with Flick Stand and tire savers.

I was surprised by how much I liked the white on silver in person. Posting in Holdsworth thread if I can post someone else's pics for now... My thanks to jeirvine for the repost, where I first saw it, and to Rocketsauce for the original post!

That is beyond the price my husband would tolerate, especially for a bike I can't see for myself before purchasing. *sigh* Thank you for the heads up, though!
