Longer trail and the bike feels like it's on a rail. Shorter trail, and it's a quicker steer. Some classic touring bikes have almost no trail and handle very nicely.

You'd have to look up modern Colnago's today, though I would think they are well within the norm. 73-74 HT angle, 56mm or so of trail. ....looked up the new C64, which is mega hot, and a "65cm" equivalent is right inside those numbers. Now I want one. If only I could convince myself to spend that much on a frameset....eh, my Impulse is essentially perfect. Nevermind.
Thanks. This is really helpful.

I'm tall, and I only have one bike, an Italian racer with a steep head tube, so that is the only kind of handling I know. Need more bikes...

It's crazy how much values can vary from market to market. Where I live, you have to pay an extra grand to get (an albeit much newer) one of those: boston.craigslist.org/gbs/bik/d/cambridge-colnago-master-olympic-decor/7120693540.html. If only I was willing to drive to Virginia this weekend...

Ahh. That makes sense. I have the chance to pick up an 88 SR500 but couldn't tell if it was any different from the other road/crit models offered that year (other than the 105 groupset). Looks like the answer is no except for the fork mangalloy fork. Thanks for calling my attention to that.

Didn't Cannondale switch to an aluminum fork at some point?

1996-7 USA Cycling Nation Team GT Road Frame/Fork
Southport, NC about a day ago
$4001996-7 USA Cycling Nation Team GT custom made in the Colorado GT factory of Renyolds 853 with Henry James dropouts Frame specs: Seat Tube: 53cm center to center (56 center to top) Top Tube: 56vm center to center Chainstay: 41cm center to center Head Tubes: 13cm Edge carbon fork (threaded) Comes with Dura Ace cartridge headset This bike was a spare for international team. It traveled all over the world, of course it was built up but it may have only been ridden a dozen times. It shows the travel scars but this frame is straight, no dents just the normal wear from shipping bikes around the world. This was a spare frame for the 1996 Olympic in Atlanta but was not put into service until the following year. A definite piece of cycling history

This bike has been sitting on that CL for about a year now. VA is going to start opening up some businesses in about a week. You might get a cheap hotel room and make a weekend out of it while picking it up.

If a buyer had to pass through Richmond on the way to purchase this bike, they could get a two-fer with this Masi Gran "Centurion." It's not far off the 95/64 corridor.

Hang around and put in some scouting time, great bikes turn up regularly in the area, and you have some A+ spotters/posters up there. (Lucky you, they don't ride bikes that big.)



I use going home to the Cape as an excuse to go joyriding. (Obviously s/b past tense at this point.)

Got my Ghibli in Brookline last summer. That's on the way to the Cape, right? I did get a Holdsworth in Wareham maybe 3 miles off Rte. 25. Score!

Very cool frame! That would be just fine... I would love to see how the ride compares with my 853 Zurich, being such different designs.
If it were $200 I'd be all in. (probably lots of folks would be. Not saying anything about the bike, but about me.)

That Colnago is beautiful. And crazy!

Cannondale had a 66cm criterium frameset that had a 74.75 HT angle, 56mm of trail, and had a wheelbase just a tick under 1m. Pretty wild. Easy handler though, and with wider-than-normal bars (for me), it was very calm in demeanor. Generally I've found that the longer a stem/handlebar/brake hood position reach gets, the calmer or 'slower' any bike steers. Conversely, the shorter all those elements are, the quicker it steers. The more weight over the front (via the rider's position), the slower it gets. And likewise, the less weight over the front aids in steering speed/response.

I wonder--and this is derived from something I read/heard--if to maintain as tight a wheelbase as possible (for criteriums that need a small, responsive bike) while also providing necessary top tube length for taller riders, steep HT angles were arrived at as it created a much longer top tube without much penalty in wheelbase length increase. Add a longer stem and bars, and there you go: instantly much larger bike than normal.

Yes, but not until the 90s. The 88 SR500 fork was a Tange.
Id jump on that SR500 if its in decent shape and fits you. My all time fave Cannondale SR.

Sure, not a Moots with di2, but you don't get many chances for a titanium bike for $300

Must be Schwinn Saturday. I'll take two please. Nice bikes. The Prelude is vintage which I would prefer. Have owned a similar era Circuit and still own a similar Tempo. The late 80's Schwinn's are awesome.

Not sure what makes this one "Terry inspired", since it has 700 front wheel. Maybe just the size. Anyway, it's "only" an Expert, and no DS pics, but still a sweet enough price, if it hasn't been robbed of any components.

(BTW, is it right to call a bike a "tribute" to someone who's still alive? )
