$35 Panasonic DX3000 in SC. Looks like an American Classic hub on the spare.

It's just that the add and the pics don't jibe. The chain is way to long but it shifts well? I see nothing on the frame that screams bob Jackson but then I only own one bob Jackson. It may be a nice deal but caution is warranted.

I bought this one earlier today. Alas, the spare wheelset is currently in the seller's rented storage facility, as the movers took the wheels when they shouldn't have. On the bright side, the seller is moving to my county, so at some point I will get a text to come collect them. I wound up paying $40 as a gesture of good will. I think I'll have fun with this one, but again - why I am finding so many lovely 1988 bikes this year?

Kinda hard to find and for 60.00 if there is not damage it would be a great deal. Sorry that is the only picture i could get.

Because no sane person sells a Team Miyata. If that was 56/58cm it would list for $900+

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.

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!
