Bikes: Red bikes. Why do I have so many red bikes?! I thought green was my favorite color

Its a 1982. I was going by color but the serial number confirms it.

To properly migrate to the spreadsheet we need one of the two options below to happen:
1) Lock this thread from any additional posts and have the last post contain a link to the spreadsheet
or
2) Retire this thread completely and start a new PINNED thread that is also locked to any new posts and only contains a single post with a link to the spreadsheet

Both of these options require a site admin and without one of these happening it is a futile battle. People will continue posting their trades on the thread and as they do, any posts with a link to the spread sheet will get buried further and further down in the thread until eventually they are so deep that nobody even sees them. I suspect that is what has happened with any previous attempts to maintain online spreadsheets for parts, sales etc. Without proper implementation, it won't work.

Couple observations:

You obviously want to be a moderator. Find out what it takes to get the magic wand.

The spread sheet is a most excellent tool, but is not a replacement for posts created by the people actually trying to make a trade. You have summarized other peoples "copy" to a few words on the spread sheet and selected one photo.

My suggestion:

Maintain a separate thread announcing every addition to the spread sheet, including a link to the spread sheet in your tagline.
and also include a link to the original posting in whatever trade request thread is current.

Then maybe the powers that be will notice your initiative and willingness to assume a leadership position, and give you your own magic wand...

That is not true. I am interested in implementing the online spreadsheet as a more efficient way of facilitating trades, sales etc. I really have no interest in moderating any other threads.

In my 30+ years of IT experience I've seen countless attempts to introduce new "improved" solutions that run in parallel to an existing solution. It does not work. Ultimately, users get frustrated and confused by the additional, redundant tool and almost always revert back to the original solution which they are familiar with. Migration to a new system requires engineering and implemention to be successful otherwise, this new spreadsheet will go the way of all previous spreadsheet attempts.

With regards to your referenced "limitations", 1) Spreadsheet allows for much more "copy" in the text fields then you are currently seeing. I have copy and pasted what I feel to be the important "Specs" which are relevant to somebody seeking a trade. Not sure that a back story about how owner came to acquire bike etc is appropriate nor necessary to such a spreadsheet. 2) Photos are simply links in the spreadsheet. As easily as a link can point to a single photo, it can also point to an album containing multiple photos.

Anyhow, just trying to help the community. The spreadsheet worked out great for me. I ended up trading/selling two bike/frames within a relatively short period of time and am just trying to offer that convenience to other members. As stated, there is only so much I can do without the assistance of a site admin. If it doesn't happen at least I gave it a reasonable shot. Not trying to step on anybody's toes or disrespect.

I, for one, am grateful to tarsi for devising and implementing this solution. It's way better than what we had before. I'll make some noise in the Forum Suggestion thread and hope someone notices.

Thank you but it looks like the original "Suggestion" post has been deleted, https://www.bikeforums.net/!1167716!...ound-game.html

Not sure what that means

Looking for an older softtail frame. Something with somewhat normal geometry. Fork not necessary.

By "softtail" do you mean a full-suspension MTB frame? What size?

Yes, though my plan is to have a rigid fork on it and use it as a gravel grinder. I ride a 58 cm or so road bike, so a I'm looking for a larger frame. Not something fancy and modern and curvy, more of a traditional 80s/90s frame geometry, preferably steel but AL if its right otherwise.

FF+HS 1981 Chrome Voyageur 11.8

Added to sheet
I've got a Chrome Voyageur 11.8.
they only made these in chrome for 2 years.
It has a small notch cut out of the chainstay for clearance of a gear ring, because someone decided that was better than just getting a longer spindle apparently. Other than that it's in good condition. Notch and all I was stoked to clean it up and use it but I mismeasured the frame and it's a 23 not a 24 inch.
Looking for a 60 or 62cm frame. Something scuffed up pretty bad or even "modified" like this on is(derailur removed for fixie etc) would be fine by me if it was of similair quaility.

Feeler: I have a 60x58 Tommasini Super Prestige that doesn't fit me very well. Anyone have one that is too small for them, in the 56cm range, that they'd like to trade?

I've got these 2 frames that have been sitting for a while and I have no plans to use them. The 720 Mutlitrack is a 17" and the I don't know the Antelopes size but the seat tube is 19.5 ctc. Both frames are dirty with scratched paint but no dents and all threads are good.

I'm looking for a Multitrack in 21" or a steel mtb around 18" with a 1 1/8 head tube.

I'm also open to any other frame options. Let me know what you have.

I'm willing to trade both frames for 1 frame and include some parts also.

PM Me for more pics

I have a " Shamblin" frame available made with Columbus GENIUS tubing. The Frame looks like a custom build as I measured it at 50 1/2 cm. I dont know much info on the frame but it does have a JB sticker (Joe Bell) and a Name on it that was pin striped. There is a slight dent on the top tube but its not a big issue. Looking to trade for a 56 CM frame of equal value , or some ROAD bike parts.

I have more pics available.

Univega Super Strada - Tange Champion - 58cm

Has some minor cosmetic blemishes, but in great shape.

I'm looking for a 58-60cm 650b conversion candidate or a frame that has room for some wider rubber. Not looking for a super pristine frame.

PDG Series 70 MTB

I'm re-listing this 18 inch Schwinn PDG Series70 mountain bike frame/fork/HS/Stem in an effort to trade for a 52cm road frame/fork. Looking for something like an Ironman, Tenax Schwinn, or upper end Univega, Miyata, etc. that would be suitable for a 600 group to build a bike for my daughter's visit this summer. If you have something in the Los Angeles area, I'll drive to make the trade.
