Thanks for the correction. I thought that the previous owner put it in there to enable him to ride it since the seat tube is 56 and he looks like he is 5'7". The cockpit sure is a lot shorter than my comparatively sized bikes.

Any reason that I shouldn't replace it?

Only reason I can think of is if you're going to run aero bars.

It looks like an old style Profile Fast Forward seatpost, BTW.

CLphiladelphiaall for sale / wantedbicycles - by owner




[h=2] Redcay Frame/Fork/HS - Beautiful/Rare/60CM - $450 (Yardley, PA)[/h]
I am selling a beautiful Jim Redcay frame/fork with Campagnola headset. Redcay was one of the finest custom framebuilders in the US in the late 70's. He only built his own frames for about 3 years after building for Tom Kellog and then went work for Ross building the cult class Ross Signature model. There are very few Redcay frames available and few owners part with them. I am the second owner of this frame and am forced to sell because I am downsizing and this frame is a tad too large for my shrinking body. It has a 60CM seat tube center to center and a 58CM top tube, also center to center. The paing is in excellent shape considering it's age (about 35 years). There was some slight surface rust under the bottom bracket and about the rear dropouts which I sanded and touched up. I would prefer to sell it locally to someone who can inspect it before purchase but if it doesn't sell in a week, I will put it on that auction site and ship it. I am asking $450. for the frame/fork and headset and don't have a lot of room on that. I'm not sure of the tubing but I'm very confident that it is at least Reynolds 531DB quality. Please email any questions. Thanks. Pat

It's been in a front-ender (bent fork), the drive side rear dropout is a mess, and it's a cheap frame in the first place. Pass at ANY price

hope this is okaty to post this here coz it's niether on CL or eBay, but rather at our local coop - Recycle-a-Bycicle (https://www.recycleabicycle.org/shop/...lage-manhattan)

$450 doesn't seem to be priced for flipping, but fair nonetheless (I think? I know diddly.) Anyways, it's a well loved 56cm Vitus in rose pink, with a complete overhaul by the shop, which is run by seasoned roadies & good solid wrenches. You'll be supporting a good cause at the very least.
Like I said, I know squat. But there's a complete Shimano 600 group and some kind of Mavic wheelset. Didn't get a good look at the hubs.
212-475-1655 to see what they have to say about it.

much love for R.A.B., i'm a mechanic at Time's Up and we also refer people to R.A.B. as our shop of choice. that said, the rules of Bikeforums are that if you're the seller, you have to put the post up in the Classic & Vintage Sales thread.

Haha I love Craiglist. Everyone knows that every stock 1988 Cannondale SR model weighs between 20-22 lbs every time. I thought this was common knowledge?

I don't know if that's ambitious, I have three Jim Redcay's & paid between $7-800 each for two of the framesets. I would have bought that one but it's way to big for me. Jim was easily one of the best custom frame builders in his time. Ask Tom Kellogg what he thinks. If that frame is your size You'd be hard pressed to do better. Of course this is all just my opinion

I think it's ambitious for a smaller name on CL, even if it is beautiful (and it is). I've heard from someone who worked with both that there is some bad blood between Redcay and Kellogg, but I have no idea if that's true. I absolutely agree that redcay is among the best I've seen, and if it fit me, I'd buy it.

Hey - I would be happy to check it out for you! I have a new baby in the house and limited free time, so I can't get in to packing and shipping it, myself. But I could probably help with the transaction and bring it to an LBS for shipping, if the seller wasn't interested in doing so. PM me if you want to discuss further.
