In case anyone else here is hesitating on ordering the Basso, it might be worth considering despite the Aelle tubing, if that's what it turns out to have been built with.

Bicycle Guide did a review of six frames, all built with difference sets of Columbus tubing, all built in the Mondonico frame-building shop (if I remember correctly, which I might not). The frames were numbered but not otherwise identified, so the test riders had no idea which were built with, e.g., Columbus SL and which with Aelle or Zeta.

The tallied votes showed that the Aelle-tubed bike was preferred by a small majority of the riders.

I was unable to find the article on line, so if someone has a link to a PDF, I'd love to see it again.

Also, as a single data point, I owned a Bianchi Eco Pista from 1983 until it was stolen 20 years later, and of all my steel bikes, I'd say it was my favorite.

1987 Panasonic DX-3000 in Chicago $300

Looks like a 55cm? This one might be worth pursuing at a discount. Seller doesn't know what they have, and it will need work.

facebook . com / marketplace / item / 208473460363715/ (link help appreciated)

The position of those qr levers make me suspect the seller treats them like wing nuts, not cams.

Gotta agree this is something special: A Sycip Bros.joint (and Phil branded, wonder if made in SF or in Santa Rosa?) But one point I dispute: there may be no "proper" way to spell a SoCal slang term, but when I were a wee lad I first saw it in print in a hand-out local radio-station fanzine and the writer spelled it "*****en" with an "e". And so it will always be, IMHO

later 80s Schwinn Prelude in southern NH for low dollars: https://nh.craigslist.org/bik/d/keen...153445497.html

For those of you who like your 80s bikes free of laser or Trapper Keeper graphics. Who knew they painted these a flat grey? I thought the customer could get one in any color he likes, as long as it's yellow and purple with squiggly green lines...

I'd be on my way if it'd fit me. It would fit my theme...

I lust after a Tange Ultimate Kona Hot but this seems just as good.

https://seattle.craigslist.org/est/b...153493101.html

Kona Hei Hei Titanium MTB - $650 (Sammamish)



The original cross country race bike! I picked this bike up from the Kona factory in Ferndale back in 1996. I'm not sure I've loved a bike as much before or since, but I haven't ridden it for 10-15 years since it is a little small for me. (I am 6'0".) The 19" titanium frame was built by Sandvik. Shimano XTR front and rear derailleurs, Magura Blue hydraulic rim brakes (bleed kit and fluid included), Chris King hubs. The original shock was replaced with a Marzocchi Marathon SL. I also have some replacement Hei Hei decals.

That "1970s" Trek is an '88 or '89.

Today was good for "pricy but awesome vintage MTBs" on Seattle CL

And it comes with "Analog shifters mounted on the downtube".
Is there anyone here who doesn't understand what the seller means? 😊
That's a short rear brake cable housing, even for me... Or is it the front that's short? The rear just mis-adjusted?
