I don't have any interest either, I have too many bikes now. I was just saying, "IF" you, or someone else, had an interest in the bike they should offer what they feel would be a reasonable price and not just assume that the listed price is what you should pay unless you have all the money in the world and the price of the bike is just chump change and you just have to have it. I never pay asking price on CL, or in dealer lots etc, 99% of the time the person putting an item on CL in this example knows the price is high and knows he is going to get offers, of which he can either accept, decline, or counter offer. It's not wasting if you want the item in question because on CL it only takes about 5 minutes, if that, to come to terms. Car dealers are a lot different, you could spend a good part of day try to get the best price, but car dealers do that on purpose to wear you down.

Great deal on a Cannondale touring bike. Not sure if it's a T1000 or T700, pic isn't great. Either way, a smoking deal. https://worcester.craigslist.org/bik/3984410307.html

There have been several shaft-drive bicycles available over the years, particularly in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. They fell out of favor for a variety of reasons: weight, lack of versatility in gearing, inefficient power transmission compared to chain drive, etc. No sure how this one has addressed the historical concerns, if at all.

Should I save it?

[h=2]Centurion IronMan Fixed Gear w Velocity Deep Vs - $150 (Largo)[/h]
This is a 54cm Centurion Ironman that has been made into a fixie. It has Velocity Deep V rims. The front rim is radial laced. The cranks are Shimano 105. The headset is also Shimano 105. The bars are no names that have been sawed off and have Oury grips. It has a front brake. It has a cheap but comfortable seat and Truaviv seat post. The tires are good, the rear one was bought at the 66th Fixed in downtown St. Pete and is supposed to be good for fixies, more rubber for skidding. I never got into stunting and what not, so it's like new.

It originally had different cranks. When I changed to the 105, I couldn't line up the chain and so it is not running right now. The frame has some scuffs from prior crashes. It doesn't come with pedals. The rear light is also included.

I bought this bike 6 years ago, but I lost interest pretty quickly when I got into other sports and it just sits in my garage. So I'm clearing the clutter. Come pick it up!

This is one of the early ones, probably late 1970s. It doesn't have the braze-ons or the high quality frame tubing as the later ones.

For $410, you can do better.

I had a Centurion Elite Gt that was a true 26" c-t-c(26"). It looked identical to this Pro Tour15, including the internal cable routing. Very nice bikes and worth the asking price.

Italian Guerciotti "Strada" road bicycle; 60 cm. Columbus tube frame. Top of the line components include: Campagnolo Nuovo Record hubs, brakes, front & rear derailleurs, headset, & seat post; Avocet cranks,bottom bracket & pedals; Cinelli stem and bars; Concor seat; Mavic wheels; Bullseye pulleys; extras. Original champagne color paint finish and decals. Beautifully maintained/ perfect condition.

Saw this in person while buying some tools, handlebar&stem from the fellow. Nice looking bike but way too big for me. Stored indoors and not ridden in quite some time. From what I can tell it just needs some tlc (front-to-back, top-to-bottom lubing and bearing repacking). Otherwise in awesome condition.

The 50th Paramount framesets are trading in the $1500 range for nice examples, if the group is of NOS quality add another $1500 to that plus another another $500 so for a 'complete bike' and your in the $3500 range...max top dollar for a bike like that.

[h=2]1985 Miyata Two Ten (210) Touring Bicycle - 23" Excellent Condition - $250 (albany / el cerrito)[/h]

This bike is in excellent condition. It is the 1985 model which features Triple-butted chromoly tubing. I had it checked out by two bike shops who confirmed the frame has no dings, dents, or structural issues. The foam on the drops will need to be replaced. This bike can be well used as a city bike, commuter, or for light to medium touring.

$250 obo

Features
- Frame is 23" (58 cm)
- Sandstone Color
- Brazed on fittings to mount racks and fenders
- All original components (including seat, rear rack etc)
- 27" Miyata Grand Touring Tires
- Suntour Hub
- Randonneur Alloy Handlebar
- 15 Speeds (Shimano Z-204 GS/ L-513- GS Deraileurs)
- Triple-butted chromoly tubing in the frame
- Mangalight fork
- Campy brakes (Dia-Compe Cantilever with hooded levers)
- Made in Japan

Carbon Fiber bike, awesome frame and accessories - $200 (Echo Park)

Fantastic EMS Tetra-Tri carbon frame bike, made in the USA, designed by Craig Calfee.
Super light, all carbon fiber frame, with shifter/brake lever combo worth the price of the bike in itself.
Great for long rides or commutes, triathlon, or just to show off.
I removed the shifting cables (was going to turn the thing into a fixie!)
Update it or use it for parts. Come and ride it!
