Schwinn Circuits are cool, Suntour Sprint is also cool. Seller says he will also re-equip the original quill stem on request.

1987 Schwinn Circuit 58cm $250 OBO (includes original Cinelli cockpit) - $250 (Bryant)

https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/b...161938030.html




This has been my commuting and around town bike, along with backup training bike for the last 4 years here in Seattle. Columbus tube set and traditional race geometry (short rear end and steep head tube angle) make it a fun bike to ride and relatively light considering its a steel frame. I have changed out the cockpit with a threadless stem adapter to some Brewer compact bars and brake levers to make it a bit more comfortable to ride than the original set up of full drops and Grand Compe aero levers. I do have the original Cinelli quill stem and bars to go with the sale if you would like them. Along with switching the bars around I put on a set of Fulcrum Racing 5 wheels which were a take-off set from a new bike. It has new cables, housing, brake pads, tubes, and tires as of this year. Rear tire is a Continental Gator Skin with about 3 months of riding on it, and the front is a never ridden Continental Ultra Sport. Shifts good and wheels are true! Thanks for looking!

I've never heard of KIA bikes, but it's the same company as the automaker:

The guy got lucky with the color match.

How much do you suppose it would add to the price to get a bike shop to pack and ship it to the other side of the country?

This is worth double the asking price. I'd pounce on it if my truck didnt just cost me $2k.

The chain guard is not original to that frame either.

I think most shops will box/assemble for $50-100, depending on the shop. Doesn't include the actual shipping cost. Cheaper if you can assemble it yourself, of course

some entirely decent Seattle prices this morning, $200 for a Miyata 710 isn't bad either.

Vintage Japanese road bike - $200 (Seattle)



Vintage Miyata Seven Ten for sale. Large size Japanese road bike fits people 5"10 to 6"2. Good condition, freshly tuned with new front Shimano breaks and cassette, new chain. Old school with downtube shifters and CroMo frame. Rides great. Moving in a few days so I need to sell quickly.

I think the two large chainrings are Sugino mighty drillium? Likely 144BCD not 130 as described? Seller says local only, but they've been up for awhile, so you might be able to talk him into putting them in a padded envelope and mailing.

https://cincinnati.craigslist.org/bo...157107095.html

Chain Rings - $7 (Kings Island)

"Black ring is 54 tooth, believe 130mm bolt circle. Other ring is 49 tooth and believed to be 130mm bolt circle. The smallest ring is 30 tooth and off a mid 90's Cannondale. Each ring is $7. 513-4six2-3one3nine. Cash, text, and local only"

Is it the angle or does that silver ring look like a Biopace?

I think it's just angle, as the distance from the bolt holes to the edge doesn't seem to be different, but I'm not positive.

Nice looking Randonneurer but the seller fails to mention that while it is double butt tubing it is Mangalloy not ChroMo. I am pretty sure the RD wasn't stock neither is that nice triple shipmano crankset. The catalog doesn't say anything about sealed hubs

Interesting hybrid conversion, I've seen Falcons here but usually from the 70s or earlier, not a later one like this.

There's a place here in Los Angeles that always labels their bikes " Lightweight". Yeah a gaspipe Schwinn is all what weight weenies want.

Re: the Vitus frame: sorry, I can't facilitate. Honestly I'd ask the seller if he's willing to ship, those frames are light enough that the cost can't be that bad.

"A little"? Yeah, it's definitely victim to a crash. Replacement fork looks out of place.
