No response from the seller, by the way.
Thanks! The BF crowd has been amazingly helpful and supportive during the crisis. I've also had no response from the last 3 potential CL finds. I think I need to use worse grammar or end with more prepositions. That unannounced 'sleeper' Roubaix in Richmond is probably just a cruel, bored, quarantine joke .

Also, since the hive is obviously operational, I'm looking for a 'sport touring' geometry setup, aluminum is possible with a steel fork of course (Cdale ST?), with a longer top tube relative to the seat tube. Likely candidates thus far: anything early Lemond, ST's, early Bianchi's, apparently some of the Centurions - although the 58cm Elite RS I just got is just a bit too big, rideable but not feeling sweet the way I expected. That could also however be b/c of the bent fork I discovered once home, total newb move there. Working on getting that fixed but not sure it'll work out in long run. I'm used to dirt bikes I can only climb on from a stump and can't actually kick start with my stub appendages (true story) so the crotch clearance ain't the issue, it's just that the frame honestly rides darn tall for how much reach I finally get out of the barely 57cm top tube. Only proper fitting I ever had was on my past life CX Kona Jake '11 which was a 53 for a competitive fit (still a 55 top tube though on that frame). So yea, 53-56 seat with somewhat relaxed angles and a 57+ top is what I'm in search of. There I ended with a preposition!

It is a '88 Giro with Columbus Formula 2 frame and came with a full Victory group.

Well, I was gunning for fit... rumour mill said that this would fit my ape-ish build better than the Centurion I'm on right now. I've got bottom barrel components (a swapped on 1st gen tourney combo) on there right now and it works just fine ;-). So you're thinking pass anyway, eh?

Univega Gran Rally. 56cm, $240. Judging by the chainrings I don't think this bike had much time on the pavement.
https://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/...129704201.html



​​​​​​Jamis Quest, 57cm, $210. This obviously was ridden a good amount and needs some work... but it's a nice 631 reynolds frame with a 105 groupset.

I suspect it actually has Maillard/Normandy hubs and Robergel spokes.

This is the bike I'm looking for (Imperial Stormtrooper's voice). Too bad there's no photo and 3,000 miles away.

Paramount in Wyoming

Somewhere around Laramie, I guess: https://boulder.craigslist.org/bik/d...124704888.html. Maybe the seller is willing to ship -- otherwise, chances are good you the buyer have a long drive.
Has an odd mix of Dura-Ace and Campy bits, but the paint job is pretty sweet:

especially when compared to the others... I guess it's all about the paint. Something seems mighty "iffy" about the CB, the steel surface under the paint does not look in "factory" condition to me. Respray over minimal prep, maybe? Seems a shame, if so. Lugs, and detailing look nice. The Alan Guerciotti is gorgeous, just what I'm looking for... at half the price, and not expecting NOS. Sweet project if the $$ was not an issue. Saronni at $800, seems a bit steep.

I hope this global pandemic doesn't develop to the point where I'm acquiring flips just to snag good gum hoods.

$150 for this Trek 400 with Deore only a train's ride from Seattle during the great bike boom/bat wing plague of 2020 seems like a really good deal.
