Funny that the seller states he is a retrogrouch and the bike is to modern modern for him being Ti. Everyone else is saying how vintage it is with rim brakes.

Or, to put it another way: Fashion (and marketing).

I think its because people are already drowning in rim brake bikes, they want something else and its a lot easier to justify a new bike if its not the exact same thing you already have 5 of.

I never put very much credit on a seller’s reason for selling. Usually made-up to satisfy the buyer. Plus, really shouldn’t ever matter. We don’t ask Home Depot why they’re selling that X product.

That's my frame. Bought here I think April 2018, ridden barely at all by me. My reasons for selling it are as stated in the ad: I've decided finally that I like less stack, horizontal top tubes, steel, and room for bigger tires. That Spectrum is absolutely beautiful, the blemishes are minor, and it rides like a dream - stable and fast and inspiring of confidence on climbs and descents.... for someone who wants to race. That someone isn't me :) I feel like an idiot riding such fast-looking bike with compact geo when my idea of a nice ride is 60 to 80 miles going 19 mph on the flats. I feel like a retrogrouch: the bike I ride most often has centerpull Dia Comp NGC 450s, and ten speed Campagnolo (rebuilt by OP on the forum here).

I've gotten 5 offers to buy it at the asking price and I think someone who will do right by it will close today, and it will head to Vermont. If not, I will let the next in line know.

That looks like an early MX Leader. Has the Max seatstays on it.

Also, MXL fork and chainstays. Big DT, but that and TT do not look to be bi-ovalized.
Edit: just looked at the nds pic and they do appear ovalized.

Exactly! I should have been more clear in my statement. The Max seatstays = early MXL (before Merckx moved to the round, SLX stays).

2014 Moots Vamoots RSL with Campy Record EPS electronic shifting big- $3250
 
This work of art bicycle has been lovingly maintained, yet it is a USED bike. What are the blemishes or other "negatives?"

Rear rim is true side-to-side, but has a vertical "bump" of less than a cm - not noticeable. Look Pedals showing some wear and tear. Accepts up to 700X25c tires, including tubeless. Never crashed.

56cm Serotta w/tdf lugs and TSX tubes
 
No affiliation.

https://atlanta.craigslist.org/nat/b...067453879.html

1988 Serotta. Tour de France lugs and a verified Columbus TSX (yes, TSX) tubeset. Extremely rare. Bought from the original owner. Serotta did not build with TSX, so this frame is likely one of a handful of Serotta’s built to customer’s spec TSX. Blue stripes in paint exactly match how the TSX tubing is rifled in the inner tubing.

Full Campagnolo Chorus. Mavic tubular rims.

No silly offers. You simply will not find another. Paint has chips (it was raced back in the day).

Have another ‘88 Serotta with SLX and Chorus. 58cm. Needs paint. Coming soon

61cm LeMond Tete de Course - $800
 
No affiliation. Seems like a good deal.

https://atlanta.craigslist.org/eat/b...065246411.html


These bikes are incredible. Half carbon and half titanium for the best of both worlds. To bikes will last forever. It’s a 61cm frame so for the tall guys (or gals). A few clear coat marks but purely cosmetic. Custom build with Ultegra 11 speed group. Has a sram rear brake and Bontrager race tires. Great shape. Blue book is around $700 with older group and wheels so this is a steal. Will answer questions the best I can.

*No pedals and will come with a different saddle

This bike is on the forum, but the post mentions and shows SoCal locations. Is that member now located in Georgia or is the pic stolen?
