Too bad most of his collection are 60cm rides. If only they were 55-56cm. That Bianchi is calling out to me! It would be a nice consolation for the lost of my 'small' collection of bikes.

60cm = yummy. Since I don't follow CR, please keep us posted. Assuming SoCal, at least it's left coast.

I got into a conversion with the owner of a bike shop a few miles away. After a while, he invited me into the basement of his shop to look at his bikes. Must have been over 100 hanging up down there, some in pretty reasonable shape, but most of them needed work. I need to get back there soon and see if he might be willing to let something in my size go.

LOL, you, of all people; I thought were trying to thin the collection, not add to it. BTW, I rode your old Trek 600 up to Hurricane Ridge the other day, it damn near killed me (The mountain; not the Trek.)

Let's just say I did not set any records:
