Specifically, what the other side of it looks like

Probably too big for me anyways, but I still wish they would have included at least the top-tube measurement.

I know that Waterfords aren't exactly rare bikes, but they're definitely relatively uncommon and are nice enough to demand a premium price. And people that buy Waterfords are typically people that know a lot about and care about what bike they ride, so it's likely that it is or was a special bike to someone.

So maybe the implied special bike + good deal gives off a vibe of someone making a sacrifice for something more important. Especially when there are a lot of folks tightening their belts right now.

Or maybe they're doing great, just bought themselves a custom Firefly Ti tourer and don't need that old hunk of steel anymore

One of those annoying ads with 3 bikes, and no prices for each. "Starting at $200." Still, the frames are wild enough that I thought I'd share. Maybe RobbieTunes needs more Ironman branded stuff?

Denver CL: Univega Gran Premio Frame 57cm - $40 (link)

Frame is in good condition, although missing some paint here and there. Tange champion tubing. Would be a good single speed/fixie candidate. Too small for me, yet too big for the person I was going to build it up for.


Looks a bit rough, but I recall that the Gran Premio was a nice frameset

Colnago Super - someone save it!

Kind of a hot mess Super singlespeed, 76/77 era it appears? Doesn’t look like any braze-ons were filed off thank goodness. Asked the seller, measured 57 st c/t and 57tt c/c, or thereabouts. Looks like the top tube was repainted so plan on a paint job! Too much work and $$ for me right now I think.

Edit: just found out it’s also on ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/274322190623

Ok it’s rough, but it comes with everything but wheels. Someone needs to save this frame!

I would buy that for the shifters alone, but I am 3000 miles away.

If the brakes are long reach and would accommodate a narrow fender I'd be interested in them and the RD
