​​Giant Kronos - $60 (Bothell)20+years old. Still rolls great. Rear derailed may need replacing. I canít figure it out. Shifts into 3 gears. Worth fixing! I am moving or 8 would keep and fix.

It's probably not the RD. The brifter pawls stuck in old grease are more likely.

daverupIt's probably not the RD. The brighter pawls stuck in old grease are more likely.

Wouldn't care if it was the RD needing to be replaced, still nice bike for that money - but I agree most probably it's a minor issue

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

TimbyMaTombo $5 says that seatpost is stuck, saying as the voice of bitter experience. It's probably why it's cheap. jdawginsc is correct, that's a great price for parts, even if the bike is a fraud.

Yep---Don't think another second, buy it! If you don't (and I knew where it was) then I would!
sure it's rough and needs work but a Neuron frame with some Record for $100? I don't care whose name is on it! BTW if that had a "restoration" the guy should get a refund!

Thanks for the heads up, WGB! It was about five minutes away. Couldn't pass it up.

It's not that hard -- I've done it a couple times. You have to take a chance, because you can't inspect. You reach out to the seller, and ask politely if they'll take the bike to a local shop if you can find one that will break down, box and ship. If they agree, then you find the local shop that will do this, and arrange with ShipBike (seems to be the cheapest aggregator going these days). Sure, things can go wrong, but my luck has been worse when my own relatives shipped bikes to me.

Glad it worked out. Looked like great bike at the price and worse case, lots of very good parts.

Anyway great score.

Miyata Six Ten Touring Bicycle - $120

image 6 of 6







© craigslist - Map data © OpenStreetMap(google map)

bicycle frame material: steel
bicycle type: road
frame size: 51 cm
wheel size: 700C
I have a really neat 1980s Miyata Six Ten. Derailleur was damaged, so it’s been set up as a single speed with bull bars and a front brake. Saddle is a take off from a newer Giant mountain bike. It has a nice luggage rack.

Certainly not a mint bike, but it does everything it’s supposed to with a funky, urban look.

120 obo. Message me for any questions!

Post Your Old Bike Shop Stickers
I have a Japanese market Centurion Dave Scott Ironman(with shop sticker) that was originally purchased(not by me) at this shop in Zushi, Japan.
https://www.hirako.com/

The sticker is fading and has some nicks, but the phone # is still somewhat legible. I will post it in that thread. After taking a look at my bikes, I have 3 or 4 that have stickers I can add to that thread.

I also have a 72 Condor that I bought from a guy who lives close to the Carpenter Center. He bought it from their store when he was working in London. He sent it back to them in the mid 80s to have the frame respaced and some bosses added along with a repaint. No shop sticker, though. It's a 58 frame. I think that's close to your size. If you haven't ridden a Condor and want to, I might be able to drop it off with you for a week or two. MTT will start back up in June. I will be on your side of town on Saturdays up until the marathon.

Here is a question for the thread/forum.

So, the blue De Rosa above is my size and around 10 minutes from me.
https://richmond.craigslist.org/bik/...320638384.html

About 10 minutes in the other direction is this Bottecchia Professional.
https://richmond.craigslist.org/bik/...316888644.html

Both are in somewhat rough shape and have their flaws. The Bottecchia has some rusty areas. Both are just riders at this point. I've never had an Italian bike. Given their prices and conditions which bike is the better deal?

Thanks. It didn't sell on the seller's last attempt. It stayed up for a whil as I remember. He/she might be more motivated this time around. I'll keep an eye on the Bottecchia as well. With the rusty areas it has, It might be had for cheap.

I would also take De Rosa. Boy that Acera RD looks out of place on the Bottecchia.

This being BF, the correct anwser is buy the De Rosa, turn around and drive 20 minutes and buy the Bottecchia (at a deal, of course).
