Miyata Alumitech 6700 58cm

I have a Miyata Alumitech 6700 with full Shimano Sante. Itís a little large for me. Iím on the lookout for a 56cm Trek Elance (dark blue, including head tube), Miyata 914 with snakeskin paint, or a Trek 2300 or 2500 - the carbon composite tube version. Can post pics when I get to 10 posts.

Add your location to your profile so people can estimate shipping cost or meet for in-person exchange. You can just use state or region if you want to maintain privacy.

72-73 colnago

Ok hereís a long shot but letís see if thereís someone else out there in my predicament. I just bought a 72-73 colnago super panto frameset. Itís absolutely gorgeous original red paint with chrome cast lugs. I think they only did this for 72-73. The bike is a bit too small for me but I loved the bike so much I had to buy it. My intentions are to just jack the seat up as high as possible or build it up for my son. Is there anyone else out there that has a 72-73 colnago super with og paint and no damage thatís a little to big for them and would trade for the same bike but smaller?

Perhaps you should think about listing the size of the bike you have?

Tell us what size you have and what size you desire. This long shot could work out. I had a similar request, and I found someone to trade with.

Thank you. If I knew how to pull the listing I would.

Enjoy your guessing games.
Yes. It’s simple. Guy has a colnago that is too big for him, sees this post, comments, convo ensues...You just want to be what I guess is natural to you.

A large part of the problem, a common one on these forums, is that some of us are unnecessarily snarky and rude to an OP if he doesn't present his case just the way you think it should be. Some people see this as an opportunity to make others suffer because they are having a bad day . . . or their lives are just miserable daily. Others see it as an opportunity to show they're smarter than the OP. Yes, there's lots of reasons some of us choose to be an antagonist, and then you get all butt hurt when the OP responds similarly. Some of you start stuff then play innocent. Have a little respect and understanding of others issues before you put on your troll police badge, or get all flippant, snarky or sarcastic . . . those characteristics aren't funny, they're rude, and they're the kind of behavior that drives some of our newer members away. If some people can be polite, like @noglider's response above, why can't everybody?

Or - alternatively - the guy above made a post that wasn't going to be useful, he was, politely informed of a way to make it more effective, flipped out, made ****phobic comments (now edited), brought in political garbage (now edited), told the forum to "f off" and, for some reason, wasn't suspended?

I've been a member year for 10 years, and that's among the most ridiculous over reactions I have ever seen. I am shocked at the gas lighting in the above post, and that, apparently, you can make blatantly discriminatory comments and get them edited without a suspension. I have never - not once - made a comment like this before, but, in this case, it's necessary. It is absolute non-sense that instead of going after the person who told the forum to "F off" (edited), the above post attacks long term members for being "snarky".

I am embarrassed to be a member today.

I watched this unfold last night. I've been watching this thread closely as I've something I'm thinking of listing. After reading most of Zen's previous entries, I reported two of his posts here as "problematic".

I am disappointed with the Administration's response.

Moderating is a tough, sometimes thankless job.
Some of us don't make it any easier either.

Moderators & Admin review all reported posts, and take action as appropriate by consensus. Not all action we take is seen publicly, such as infractions and PM discussions with members.

We are not employed to monitor 24/7, so it may appear that we have not acted upon something as quickly as some might like.

7 posts were removed for violating BF Guidelines.

This thread is about bicycle frames.

Please PM the Admin if you have further concerns.

Aaron, in your 10 years here when have you EVER seen public notice of someone’s disciplinary sanctions? Other than banning the answer to that is NEVER. An individuals privacy is of the utmost importance here at BF, including YOURS. So let’s continue this discussion via PM.
