My apologies if I got someone's hope up. I ended up buying the bike - came with full set of Karrimor panniers and handlebar bag, small goodies, original catalogue and owners manual, spare spokes, cables and chain. Got it for fair price and owner was happy it is going to a good home. Will post detailed thread at some point. Bike is exceptionally clean and well taken care of.

Actually, you don't. The smart folks at wikipedia created a page at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S****horpe_problem (note, I actually typed four asterisks), which redirects to the "real thng".

This sort of silliness is not limited to machines. I remember reading about an office worker who was nearly fired for using the word "pedagogical" in an Email. One of his superiors, who evidently couldn't be bothered to "look it up", immediately assumed it meant something it didn't, and before he knew it, the guy had building security in his office with his boss, ordering him to clean out his desk. The boss just assumed it was "obvious" why he was being fired. Finally, just before being escorted out of the building, he found out what it was about, and *HE* had to explain to *THEM* what a common English word means. He kept his job, but did he get an apology? No, he got a copy of a company-wide memo that no one should use "obscure" (or something like that) words in their office communications. So it was still all his fault, for daring to use a word that might, quite innocuously, increase someone else's vocabulary.

This looks like a repaint and may be a production model, but these are nice and this is a pretty good deal.

Bike Friday triplet with two samsonite cases

https://www.kijiji.ca/v-road-bike/da...ike/1518362648

ad only has two pics - best one:



I have no connection with the seller, and they don't know I am posting this. I do have a BF single & Samsonite and it does go as a regular checked bag on the airlines and it is a nice bit of kit otherwise.

I can facillitate.

Waterford RS-11 (late 90's?) - $750. Ad says "custom", but my understanding is that this was a standard production model (Rs-11 105). These have to be among the last production bikes made with 531, right? I'm tempted, but the price is too high for me.



https://cincinnati.craigslist.org/bi...178648923.html

like new custom built bike - $750 (Colerain Twp)

Think this popped up once before, but the one-year only Centurion Comp TA (before it was renamed the Ironman, due to BF Goodrich owning the trademark for "Comp T/A")

84' Centurion Road Bike- 53cm - $395








#2[/URL] 22222]1984 Centurion Comp TA 53cm road bike. The Comp TA was the #2 bike in Centurions impressive line-up in 84' with a great Tange Champion 2 double butted frame and Shimano 600/Ultegra derailleurs/shifters, 600/Ultegra brake set, 600/Ultegra crank and 600/Ultegra alloy headset, Deda 285 bars/stem- ding in top tube, but the bike rides great, handles fabulous, a really excellent quality vintage riding road bike in very clean condition.

That's a pretty big hole in the stem for the handlebar binder bolt. Also, the minimum insertion mark on t he stem is well out of the steerer tube.

You gotta know things are not right when the whole world is short on bikes and this doesn't sell for $475.

Well, this will go fast, even with the Exage parts.

https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/b...179232504.html

~1986 Bridgestone MB-2 Men's Mountain Bike (21"/53cm) - $65 (Greenwood)






Approximately 1986 Bridgestone MB-2 men's mountain bike, top tube ~21" (~53cm), standover height ~29.5", seat tube ~19". Straight handlebars, 15 speed, Shimano hardware. Araya rim in back, Ukai rim in front, Continental conti top touring tires on it, shrader valves. Included extras: triangle storage bag, 2x bottle cages, fenders, Blackburn Mammoth pump (mounted on frame/bottle cages).

Bicycle is in good condition, all 15 speeds work, frame is straight with an expected amount of wear for a 34 year old bike. The granny gear is pretty awesome; I think it might be under 1:1. Be aware that this bike has Shimano friction shifters (or whatever you call that); you do _not_ push a button to shift, but merely move the levers as far as you need to effect a shift (or to quiet a rattle if you shift too far or little).

I think it might be this: https://www.sheldonbrown.com/bridges...tone-mb-2.html. I am the second owner, so I do not know.

Desire cash payment, as-is (so no warranty), for you to test drive it around my neighborhood is fine if you show me an ID with your name and address beforehand, but the seat is tight and thus a little hard to move so it'd be ideal if you are either pretty serious if you want to move it, or just don't need to move it. I am 5' 8", so you likely won't have to move it if you are at least that tall (and if you are a great deal taller than that, a 53cm bike might not be your ticket anyway). I can write a short sentence or two bill of sale to protect us. I will wear a mask if I am within 8 feet of you while we talk.

Speaking of reasonably priced Bridgestones, the Mile 112 seems to consistently be a good value compared to RB2/1s.
