Something caught Ruth's attention long enough for me to get a non blurry picture of her. She was born to a feral mama who was unfortunately killed by coyotes. I gave her siblings to tame barn cat of...

For 50 bucks, why not? I've got three vintage C'dales and love them all, but it really depends on the person. I have a '93 H series which makes a very nice canal trail bike. As for the weird drop...

I went to the address given, and the guy home had no idea what I was talking about. Contacted the seller, thinking maybe auto correct had changed it on him, was given a new address across town, got...

Just from the couple texts I've gotten from this guy, this might be a little sketchy. We'll see what happens.

Huh. Alright then, I'll see what I can do when the seller hopefully gets back to me, it's only about an hour drive to it. I guess I'll let you know what happens then.

1990s? Bianchi Equinox

I'm guessing at it being an Equinox, the images are not great quality, but I can see "nox" somewhat clearly. Looks like Suntour something or others front and rear derailleur, Araya VX400 rims. Here's...

If price is less of a concern, and you do like the Domane, Trek does offer custom built bikes called Project One where you can pick the size, colour, components, etcetera. It doesn't seem to be a...

Yeah, the front is also Shimano, FD-AX55 which I can't seem to find information on. The rear is RD-M531, which should make it Deore but that doesn't seem right. Brakes are also Shimano BR-AT50, and...

Actually, on closer inspection now that I'm home, the shifters are Shimano SL-MS40, date code KK on both. The rear shifter is missing whatever button is supposed to be on the top hiding the spring,...

I know the champion sticker doesn't mean much, I only mentioned it because the frame must have been made at least '86 or later since it is present. Rims say Araya 26x1.5, unfortunately the shifters...

Got the bike for $140, and other than the paint, it's in pretty good condition. The derailleurs and brakes match years and were made in late '86, so my guess is this is a '87 model, but I've had a...

Late 1980 something Bianchi Grizzly

So I tried getting my hands on a road converted Bianchi hybrid last week, and it sold before I could get to it. Then this week, another Bianchi shows up which I would have to convert myself, but I'm...

I use my Tevas for just tooling around on the canal trail and at the beach. The leather is sturdy and they hold up to the occasional foot cooling off in the creek. Can't say how they'd do in...

Bianchigirll! Exactly the person I was hoping for! I was thinking since it already was missing a bunch of original parts, it might be a fun project if the frame is worth the effort. I have easy...

Older hybrid Bianchi

So, my poor C'dale and I had a run in with a dog, and my back wheel is now closer to the shape of a potato chip than a wheel. While I wait for the new rim to come in, I've been looking on Craigslist...

That's better than the stock one anyway. I'd look in to getting padded shorts. Loose fabric causes chafing, and cycling shorts have flat seam to help prevent rubbing too. You can wear something over...

Padded shorts are helpful, but if that bike has the original saddle, that's possibly the root of that sore. Those Coda saddles are just terrible, too much padding, too skinny, and too round. I took...

Thank you all. I'm hopefully going to go look at it sometime this week between downpours. I just wanted to make sure it was worth the trip to check in person for anything the pictures may have missed.

Hello, all. I'm relatively new to both the sport and the forum, so please bear with me, and I hope I put this in the correct area.
