I had emailed the Centurion seller and it is a 64CM. You can contact the other sellers directly.

This bike has been on Craigslist for a while. I thought that this is a great price for a Litespeed titanium. Are older TT bikes that unpopular?



https://orangecounty.craigslist.org/bik/3953130060.html
61cm Litespeed Titanium frame / Dura Ace - $700


1999ish Litespeed Tachyon triathlon bike. Custom paint by CycleArt. 61cm/24" titanium frame with a 82.5cm/32.5" standover ht (best for 6ft+ tall rider). Time carbon fork, Dura Ace 7700 9 speed crank, derailers, brake calipers, and bar end shifters. Crank has some rub and light superficial salt corrosion on it which I'm guessing can probably be polished off. Ultegra hubs on 700c Mavic SUP Open wheels. If you don't like the paint you can have it stripped for about $60, repaint it or just go with the raw Ti look.
Frame and paint are in excellent condition, no dents or gouges just a few scratches as to be expected on a used bike. Rides, shifts, and brakes smooth.

Bike less the wheelset, cassette, derailers, brake calipers, and seat $500

Complete bike $700

I think it may be a combination of the color and the stays looking bent. Plus people who actually use these bikes to compete always want the latest and greatest and anything else isn't worth bothering with. It looks small to me but with a 32.5 standover height I would at least look at it and try haggle a bit if it was local. But then again who knows how funky the geometry is on this.

As has been discussed a number of times here and in other similar threads, that particular seller seems to like listing his bikes at 10 times their value for no particular reason. Seems to make them inflate the perceived value of their holdings and they might eventually sell 1 or 2 to a complete sucker. Not trying to be harsh as I know you're new, but yeah, those guys are insane.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. We need a sticky in huge bright red letters right on the main page.

This is likely one of the few bikes BBC has that are close to worth the asking price

Landsharks are all unique performance bikes and works of art, this seems pretty good if you just make an offer on the frame set
