Here's the question I should have asked - Is that data base (bikehistory.org) known to be unreliable?
I'm seeing some skepticism about bikehistory analysis here: https://vintageamericanbicycles.com/index.php/schwinn/
"A few words regarding the online lists. The bikehistory.org site has a place where you enter your serial and supposedly it gives you the year. About half the time this is wrong."

This one has been there awhile. Assuming it's still for sale as price dropped to $125 from $150

Seller can't do math (I see a double crank) and uses the usual internet copy "Comparible to a Trek or Fuji".
Someone should speak to management at Touring Cyclist in St Louis and confirm who actually made these?

I've seen the better Terranauts described as very good bikes and the examples of this model I've seen usually had Cyclone shifters/RD/FD/cranks and brakes so it might be a good bike to have, assuming it has a front wheel.


​​​​​​15 speed racing bike with wind trainer

$125
Listed 8 weeks ago in Lake St Louis, MO
  • Condition
    Used – good
Made by Touring Cyclist for triathlons. Comparible to a Trek or Fuji. Various custom parts and pedals (shimano).

​​​​​​Vintage Racing Bicycle (Circa 1952 Hermes)

$475$500
Listed 2 days ago in Roseburg, OR
  • Condition
    Used – good
Vintage (circa 1954 Hermes) racing road bicycle. All original parts except rims and tires. Shifters and derailleur are made in France by Huret. From ground to top bar is 31 inches. Comes with pedals and seat stem not shown. Needs new brake pads. My father bought the bike in Golden Colorado and road and raced it there, so single owner and original paint. Brakes work just need adjusted and new cables.

Right on, like it or not, that is a great deal all day long barring any unforeseen major flaws.

1960's and earlier most likely had eyelets. Then there appears to be a period where they were by order preference. By 1974, I would call it without unless by special order.
Geometry changes around 1970? 1971? then again post Cino.

I read a post on the CR List (I get the digest so always missing pix and links) this AM from the new owner, was that you Bianchigirll?
I did not recognize the handle but newowner said they paid the full boat and got a pair of Phil-hub wheels plus TI-spindle SR pedals thrown in, also they doubted this frame was a legit Cinelli, but was planning to harvest all the parts and not keep the frame set.
So...maybe this will be back on the market, hopefully with better details, better pix and with actual ID verified.

Are those Victory/Triomphe cranks with brifters and Shimano 105 train? Wonder what brakes...? The look somewhat Campy...

Originally all Triomphe, so that's probably what the brakes are. Looks like they wanted Shimano RD and brifters though. I guess you could always ask if they kept the original parts.

That's an amazing old bike but Sweden would be unhappy to know that they just lost one of their cities, especially since it's only 40 miles, 65 km north of Stockholm!


NYMANS

UPSALA (UPPASALA SWEDEN)

At first I thought that they were Thun brand cranks.... Crescent used them on their GAS PIPE Sport 305 model. Astabula style cranks - we used to call them Ash-Tabula - sign of a true POC bike... Ah the bike snob comes out!
