More Raleighs!!! It's Raleigh day on CL, apparently.

Not sure about this one, I'd like to see a SN and those Reynolds stickers are 80s, but not impossible if it's a professional repaint as the description states.

Speaking of Itty bitty...

Bob Jackson 753 90s extra small size - $500 (West Olympia)image

https://seattle.craigslist.org/oly/b...192423654.html




Sizing wise, I measured the seat tube (Center of top tube to center of crank) as a hair over 18 so 46cm and the top tube is just over 20 inches center to center, so 51cm. Id call the stem an 80mm. Condition is used for sure. The worst spot is where the cable housing rubs on the top tube near the seatpost, there was surface rust there, I removed the rust and only waxed over the top. A more permanent fix may make sense for you or you could just ride it as is with the patina. The pink and grey paint I think is looking more faded than original due to the clear coat, so maybe some time buffing it would make it shine way more. Maybe something youre interested in. Also minor surface rust around the spoke holes, but like I said. Id still ride as is

I am not much of a fan of Raleighs, but if one of these (similar year) came cheaply in my size, I might have to jump. These were pretty bikes then. I am assuming this is circa 1970?

is is a strange-looking frame, and I'm pretty sure I've never seen anything quite like it before. Normally a seatpost is bent backwards that way to get the back wheel farther forward, but that clearly wasn't the goal here. Was it just for suspension? Also, since the base of a straight seatpost set in this manner would terminate inches forward of the bottom bracket, the "real" seatpost angle would change as you raised and lowered the saddle. Can anyone shed any light on this for me? Anything at all? I'm very curious.

This looks very similar to the Aegis Carbon bikes that where built out of Maine I think. I wonder if its made by them for Iron Horse.

Thanks! That's almost definitely what it is. The seller suggests that the decals may not be legit.


Anyway, anyone have any experience with a seatpost like that?

Are you concerned about fit or frame design?
If fit, effective seat (or seat tube) angle might be a better way to think about it.
This angle, formed at BBctr is formed at the intersection of a line drawn from a point on the saddle through BBctr and a horizontal line drawn through BB ctr.
The effective seat angle is variable with saddle, seat post, seat post attachment to the rails, and where you spend most time on the saddle irrespective of what kind of seat tube you have.
For me, what's important is how I fit on the bike with respect to the contact points (saddle, pedals, handlebars) and try to duplicate that position as best I can on all daily rider road bikes.

Nice to see a sensible bike at a sensible price. There are actually people up here making CL posts just to complain about sellers setting unreasonably-high prices on CL. Its been bad up here. I'm kind of saving my cash at the moment because I'm predicting that there will be a glut of bikes on the market soon. Seasonal markets are like the tide. There is an ebb and flow to it, and you got to be ready to strike when the tide comes in and brings all the fish in with it!

Think I've actually seen this one around town prior to it being listed. Regardless, 753 Merckx isn't the most common bird.


Also "brake/sh*t levers" is a very good typo

https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/b...195271303.html

Eddy Merckx 55cm Road Bike - $700 (Georgetown)






Hello, selling this Merckx steel road bike 55cm. 55cm seat tube 54cm top tube. Built with Reynolds 753 tubes. The bike is mostly Campy components but its a bit of a hodgepodge. 10 speed (rebuildable) Chorus brake/**** levers, Centaur 10 spd rear derailleur, Chorus CT front derail, Chorus CT carbon cranks 50/34, one inch Campy headset, Chorus carbon seatpost, Regal saddle (it's kinda beat), Record rear hub laced to Mavic rim, Front is an older Campy hub but its in good shape, Brake calipers are not Campy but tektro R539, I think I have the one functional Campy caliper that came on the bike if you want it. Drop bars are compact 42cm. I bought this bike on a lark while visiting friends in the Bay Area. I tore the whole thing down once I got home, cleaned everything, replaced all cables and housing, bar tape, and blasted the frame with frame saver to prevent corrosion. If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks for looking.

I was just mostly wondering why they made that bicycle that way in the first place--whether it had to do with helping a rider get their saddle in a certain position or something else.
