At $150 for two, that seems like a very good price for a Voyageur (ignoring tye pump and rack and bag) even if you gave away the other bike!

Usually being until you shift into big-big by accident.
I'll admit 8 was a bit of an exaggeration, the official max is apparently 26t which really means 24t because of freewheel availability.

Mine all go to 28t without much problem. I've read that some folks need to move the axle back in the drops, but I've never had much of an issue. I have had some problems with a Record shifter slipping when in the big cog, but I consider that a shifter issue. A few guys here can get 30t or 32t to work, but I've never tried.

And who shifts into big/big ever, even accidentally? Maybe I'm not riding hard enough. I mean, I thought I was going pretty f'n strong lately, but maybe not...

This is awesome and a bargain IMO.

If this was any closer in size, I would be turning things inside out to make it so.

I wonder if it belonged to Bill Walton or a Seattle Supersonic player? Then again, could also have belonged to a Seahawk too.

Oh, and the seller better check the brakes on his car......
Yeah, I was gonna say, those dual pot brake pads just sorta slipped out of their holders. Looks a little overkill for this bike.

To quote an early Andy Griffith routine, "I b'lieve I'll have me a Big Orange." This one's obviously been stored inside for decades; I've never seen one that was not badly faded, and they are usually found in this large size. Flexstem is a nice touch.

Fuji Finest 1970’s 10 speed - $150 (Batavia)

https://cincinnati.craigslist.org/bik/d/batavia-fuji-finest-1970s-10-speed/7167172374.html



"I bought this in the early 1970’s. Rides fine; I finally got a replacement. Sew-up tires. One leaks; one new spare included. Rims straight. Pretty engraved Cinelli bar; Campy front derailleur and air pump; Hi-E sealed bearing hubs front and rear; special Sugino drilled front cogs, 52/47 teeth - not for heavy hills! Malfac racer brakes. Frame was beautiful, chromed and painted with some chrome showing. It is now showing its age. Foes still
Pretty. I ride a size 54, so this is about that size. About 22 7/8” from crank to the top of the seat post lug. It has cheap pedals and the original, cruel Brooks saddle."

Such a tease! I really don't need this bike, and I'll tell myself that it's too large at 23". It is a very pretty bike, within reach even. With Tubulars!
I'm just going to have to borrow some tubular wheels to sate my curiosity.

League Fuji steel frame - $75

Posted 2020-07-23 06:11



"The bike is solid as a rock, it a steel frame which hard to find, the bike is road worthy with the exception to the tires, they will need to be replaced soon but ok for now
56 cm

bicycle frame material: steel

bicycle type: road
condition: fair
frame size: 56 cm
make / manufacturer: Fuji
wheel size: 700C"

https://charlotte.craigslist.org/bik...164351186.html

(Posting it here because it is $75 and ideal for the Clunker Challenge. I'm assuming it has 16" wheels, if it's a 56?)

sorry I can't post direct links, just fill it in with the parentheses. 50cm (smallest size they made) 1984 Miyata 1000/ One Thousand looks to be in pretty good condition, and the price isn't bad for the model's reputation

If they were still also available as frameset only in '83 (like the 950/750 were in 80-82) that could actually be the original build done by a shop.

I bought a 760 in 82(?). It was built by the shop (Livermore Cyclery) with mostly SunTour Superbe components. I expect the 970 (top level at that time I think) would have been available in bare frame form as well.
