[h=2]Nashbar Road Bike - $250 (Cambridge or Worcester)[/h]
Blue Nashbar road bike. Very good quality. Light weight. Has alloy wheels. New 700 C road tires and tubes. New handlebar tape. Great bike for entry level training or try up on use. 21 inch frame. 31 inch standover height. Best for someone 5 foot 7to 6 foot. I travel between Worcester and Cambridge frequently so I could likely meet anywhere in between. $250.00.

I have been trying ti get in touch with this seller since I saw this posting, but he will not get back tome!

+1 Typical. About a third of the time, I get no response. C/L is the wild wild west, no restrictions on buyers or sellers. Flakes on both sides of it.

Also if you are not going for a local pickup, how do you esnure that the user will send the item?

You don't, unless you have a friend pick the bike or parts up for you. See earlier wild wild west comment. The beauty of C/L is that it is easy and free. The bad news is that there are no protections for buyers or sellers, except doing deals in a public place in person, if you want ebay type protections, then you have to step up to all the fees and usually higher prices.

Thanks George!

This could be an alternative (not such good value I guess).

CLASSIC SHIMANO 600EX (PRE ULTEGRA) GROUP SET (NEAR COMPLETE)SERVICED / POLISHED

What does the group think??

Will the braking effectiveness be a considerable step up from my weinmann 750 centre pulls??
Also will the derailleurs work with later 8 speed break/shifter levers (say the Dura Ace ones?)

Does any member of the group have a spare group of similar vintage (including wheels, headset, bb) for sale??

Not sure whether the phrase "promotional tool" is meant to describe the bike or the seller.

Dear sir,

It is with great sorrow that I inform you that the old curmudgeon, known as retyred in these parts, swooped in for a quick CL score this morning.

The postage shows $52 from the other side of the state to me. Seems about right.

I don't blame the previous owner for scraping off the Marlboro sticker even if it hurts the value. I don't want to be a rolling billboard for lung cancer.

Somebody recently suggested that the Marlboro bikes fold so they're easier to fit into a coffin. Dark, but funny...

That is funny.

Replace the sticker with one that says, "Cancer cures smoking."
