Panasonic's approach to the tiny frame. Unremarkable but for that, and only $75 in MA.

​​​​​​I'm not selling this as a Pinarello frameset. I don't know what company made this frame. It's had a professional repaint at some point in its history.

52 cm ctc Frameset
Comes with Campagnolo headset and down tube cable stops.
Internal cable routing for rear brake
Italian threaded bottom bracket
Takes a 27.0 mm seatpost
126mm rear spacing
Takes recessed brake bolts.

The fork tips are marked Bridgestone.

I'm open for trades. I'm looking for Brooks saddle; B67, Flyer, B17.

Please respond with a telephone number
​​​​​​

​​​​​​

​​​​​​
fork is a JP replacement (probably Tange-made for Bridgestone) but the rest of the frame looks to be "something Italian" just not any Pinarello. Given the chrome on the rear, but what may be a seamed BB shell, and those headlugs you find on dozens of marques, I'd say at least "midrange".
the 27.0 seatpost is odd: you'd expect 26.8 if it's Aelle, 27.2 if SL, and it's too small a frame for an SP seat tube.

I think your Mondia guess is very solid! If I were truly interested I would dive into researching this more but I am going to pass on it. Like many here my hands are full and I already have another one on the way next week!

It was FIXIE and the "lady" in front has contol of a front wheel hand brake! As one of the other riders looked at those features he commented "That has 'marriage breaker' written all over it!" It was owned a ridden by a fellow from the Twin Cities.

It was VERY disconcerting to be sitting in front and not be able to move the handlebars. After we rode a couple blocks, Julio and I traded places, steering from the back was just as weird as sitting in front.

Aren’t these designed for the woman to be in front with the hubby in the rear?

Many thanks to our very own @Reco Very for facilitating, and to the downtown branch of "TheBikeHub" for doing an excellent packing job and shipping promptly.
Not to mention @lorica for alerting me to a great find.

Below is the reason I HAD to have this bike -- clearly, these were separated at birth. Mine has a lot more miles and it shows.. it also has no original parts left except the crank. Some nice upgrades on the WA bike -- crank, derailer, brakes -- XT in front, Ritchey in back -- a nice seat post ("RT"?? never heard), Nitto Technomic stem, wide no-name bars and Shimano 7sp bar-end shifters. The wheels are in need of service and will probably go to a lesser bike.

Anyway, I am excited about this. Not great cycling weather, as you can see, so now is the time to get my bikes ready for spring.
cheers -mathias

3 days left on this Faggin... $135 starting bid, $99 shipping from GB. Looks brand new. 55cm. Probably really early, before the engraved Fs in the lugs...

EDIT: I am guessing, but the tubing is probably Columbus Zeta which usually carries a 26.4 seatpost size, while Aelle is .1mm thicker giving a 26.6 post size.

Lotus Touring bike (Eclair, Challenger???) seller calls it a "Lotus Bicycle Pro"
Looking at the photos (which are terrible) it looks like the cranks take an oversize pedal (IIRC Shimano tried an oversized 1 inch pedal thread??), if so I'd ask seller about a reduction as those are probably hard to find
seller is clearly a flipper

Vintage Cannondale Black Lightning, 56 cm, tuned - $199 (Anderson Township

This is a 56 cm 1988 Cannondale Black lightning. Originally equipped with Suntour Sprint component group, the brakes have been upgraded to Shimano 600 ultegra, and the chain upgraded to a Dura-Ace.
The bike has just been tuned, the drivetrain cleaned, and has new derailleur cables and handlebar tape. The wheels are in excellent condition with very true rims.

Price reduced to $199.

TEXTS AND PHONE CALLS ONLY!

I honestly wonder if this is the same one I saw at a pawnshop 15yrs ago when I lived in that area.

Here's one I like, another Dave Scott Ironman Centurion in nice shape, now with Mavic wheels, bar-ends, tall cogset and half-step w/granny triple.
It's got 25mm tires, and my guess is, that's the limit on this 23.5" frame.
Presented well. $230 ask.
