Tourism is the major economic force in that part of the state. So at this particular time, yeah, they're gonna be hurting.

That said, the seller shouldn't lean on the brand name to expect $500, posting with near ZERO info about the rest of the bike.

Oh wow!

Glad that the seller actually posted some measurements! I've never seen any info about these like this before.

I'm thinking that even though they list the top tube as 59cm, the effective length would be quite a bit shorter. Would that make sense?

$150? Yeah, no question if that was local.

I love that color.

Yes, but perhaps the owner is out of a job right now due to the pandemic, Bill. Our local McDonald's closed, so that's just an indicator of tough times now, and worse ahead.

Well, if it is still there after the crisis is over, maybe I can facilitate. I go to Fredericksburg on business every 2-3 weeks.

I just find it quite curious that y'all chose that posting to speculate on the seller's motive and immediately assumed it must be Covid-19. While this has not occurred with any other posting of any other bike. I just figured it was a good deal on a 30 year old Waterford.

Specifically, what the other side of it looks like

Probably too big for me anyways, but I still wish they would have included at least the top-tube measurement.

I know that Waterfords aren't exactly rare bikes, but they're definitely relatively uncommon and are nice enough to demand a premium price. And people that buy Waterfords are typically people that know a lot about and care about what bike they ride, so it's likely that it is or was a special bike to someone.

So maybe the implied special bike + good deal gives off a vibe of someone making a sacrifice for something more important. Especially when there are a lot of folks tightening their belts right now.

Or maybe they're doing great, just bought themselves a custom Firefly Ti tourer and don't need that old hunk of steel anymore

One of those annoying ads with 3 bikes, and no prices for each. "Starting at $200." Still, the frames are wild enough that I thought I'd share. Maybe RobbieTunes needs more Ironman branded stuff?

Denver CL: Univega Gran Premio Frame 57cm - $40 (link)

Frame is in good condition, although missing some paint here and there. Tange champion tubing. Would be a good single speed/fixie candidate. Too small for me, yet too big for the person I was going to build it up for.


Looks a bit rough, but I recall that the Gran Premio was a nice frameset

Colnago Super - someone save it!

Kind of a hot mess Super singlespeed, 76/77 era it appears? Doesn’t look like any braze-ons were filed off thank goodness. Asked the seller, measured 57 st c/t and 57tt c/c, or thereabouts. Looks like the top tube was repainted so plan on a paint job! Too much work and $$ for me right now I think.

Edit: just found out it’s also on ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/274322190623
