this thread serves no real purpose

I get the idea of doing PSA's. I do them. But having a big bike bucket for them is not very helpful for me, even though I ride relatively big bikes. Just another Forum rabbit hole...as you can see.

On the local CL - not mine. This is on Maui, so I will not be going and checking it out.

I'm scouring craigslist/ebay/forums daily and instead of posting a bunch of PSAs on Paceline perhaps it would be easier to post them in a dedicated thread so that everyone can benefit from our tireless searching for those ellusive lovely long-head-tubed beauties.

Let's keep the quality of the PSAs medium high (avoiding all the 66cm Univega Viva Sports out there).

Visibility? Why?

Without getting into my problems with posting non-classified stuff in the classifieds:

- subscribe to the thread. What more visibility do you need?

If people REALLY wanted some of this stuff, they would already have searches setup that would notify them when something surfaced. All these posts do is assure that there's now someone bidding against them. And in the case of many of the people here, they don't even REALLY want it. They likely won't ride it and many of them will try to turn a profit when they list it back on the forum in a couple months. Talk about rubbing salt in the wound.

Us normal-size people already have difficulty living in a world designed for short people. We should have our own thread.

No lock.

ooooh. The Klein Quantum Race was the first bike I lusted after. It needs some restoration, but this one is tempting.

I don't particularly care about most of the parts. They look to be junked anyway. I just want the frameset and whatever part of the Shimano 600 group can be salvaged, if any.

Looks like an amazing deal on a giant Paramount. You might say it's a paramount-Paramount for a paramount price. No relation to seller.

I think this is a good reason to bring this thread back. I'd actually like to see it as a sticky but thats just me:

Get it if it fits. Seems like a good deal to me

57cm CSI with Dura Ace headset and post on eBay
