I have two of those bottles and even though they are cracked, I just don't have the heart to trash them. I'm not sure why???

Clearly needs a cleaning, doubt it's an 18 inch (46cm frame). Seller says it has 26 inch wheels and that both seller and previous rider are about 6' tall. I suspect it's someone who bought to flip or was given it.

Classic CIOCC road bike - $300 (BOULDER)


This classic Italian road bike has been very well loved. It is sold as is. The tires are flat but they have very little mileage on them. All the components work just fine. $300 OBO! Im not sure of the size but it fits me and the previous rider. Both of us are about 6' tall.

Seller says the seatpost is stuck. Buried like that it will be a problem.

As I said I would, here's the follow-up (I'll try to be brief): went there Thurs AM (the poster chose that as best for him) and since I could not get a Gig car rental that day/time I went via BART, he was about midway between 2 stations so I was either going to find a cab (nope) or walk it (yep).
Rather than a creepy axe murderer I found a perfect kindly gentleman, he offered to pick me up at the station (I thanked but waved that off) but he did drive me back!

His hobby is mainly fixing up juvenile (kiddie) bikes so the wheels he has are almost all 16" and 20" (NO GP4s, nothing but a single 26" rim, everything else is small fry), he had boxes and bins of parts gleaned off these kid's bikes: saddles, Ashtabula cranks, brakes...not exactly the kind of stuff that excites us C&Vers.

But he left me to comb over all of it at my speed while he ate breakfast and I filled a small bag, mainly canti brake parts.
A super nice guy who would not take any $ so I will try to come back when my car is back on the road and give him something in return.

And I am learning a lot (more than ever) about our local public transit! So varied, so well established yet still so fraught with glaring deficiencies!

Yikes!

They often go for big $$$ on efbay but you gotta keep them together, one isn't much good without the other but the bottles are probably harder to come by as they often don't last and the cages do. yours could be paired with orphan cages for display.

My bet is that's the 24". If it weren't on the other side of the country, and I hadn't just bought two 90's Treks I'd be very tempted... more tempted than I currently am. Perfect color too!

The link says the listing is expired or the item sold, so either it was real or the seller recognized the missing zero and fixed the error.
